Mouser offers Digi’s ConnectCore for i.MX6UL to reduce development time
Distributor Mouser now stocks the Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL development kit. The kit comprises a single board computer (SBC) built on the ConnectCore for NXP i.MX6UltraLite applications processor. It is designed specifically for rapid development and prototyping of a secure gateway platform for intelligent connected devices.
The rapid, efficient delivery of connected products and applications that require multiple access points, offer flexibility in the network, and enable developers to create in areas such as display capabilities to power the internet of things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) projects.
The Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL development kit delivers a software platform that requires little to no hardware development to create a range of connected devices, says Mouser. The SBC is built on the ConnectCore 6UL system-on-module (SoM) with a low-power NXP i.MX6UL application processor, 256Mnytes of flash memory, 256Mbytes of RAM, dual 10/100Mbit Ethernet, pre-certified dual-band 802.11ac wireless LAN,
Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, near field communication (NFC) tag capabilities, and a set of peripherals. The SBC also features a Digi XBee socket that supports the broad line
of Digi XBee RF modules, 4bit LVDS and RGB parallel LCD support (up to WXGA), camera, and SD card storage.
The Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL development kit also includes all functionality on one board and allows designers to address all development needs, including a proven reference design for module-based development, a rapid prototyping platform for quickly creating proof-of-concepts, and a platform to quickly bring fully developed intelligent connected products to market. In comparison to the Digi ConnectCore for i.MX6UL starter kit, the SBC in the development kit is focused on the creation of connected smart gateway capabilities, including those requiring more flexible
implementation options such as integration of multiple wireless technologies, or LCD and camera support.
