Rugged SODIMM-style COM family adopts i.MX6

oradex tipped a new Apalis-family COM that runs Linux on a Freescale i.MX6 SoC, and offers 10-year availability and industrial temperature range operation.

The Apalis iMX6 computer-on-module (COM) is a close cousin of the Nvidia Tegra 3-based Apalis T30 module announced last March. This time, Toradex has chosen a system-on-chip that is more commonly used in the embedded world: the similarly ARM Cortex-A9-based Freescale i.MX6. Key differences from the Apalis T30 are that the module is available with 10-year availability, offers industrial-grade support for -40 to 85°C temperatures, and can be configured with both quad- and dual-core processors.
