A SMARC module powered by the high performance Freescale i.MX6 processor running 1.0GHz has been released by IBASE Technology. RM-F600-SMC supports an image capture interface for MIPI cameras, 18/24-bit parallel LCD, LVDS and HDMI interface, as well as a full-HD 1080p hardware video codec engine. It is best suited for mobile and HMI systems, in addition to applications in the multimedia, automotive, medical and consumer markets.
The module was designed based on SMARC, a versatile small form factor for computer modules with 82x50mm size that targets applications requiring low power and high scalability. The RM-F600-SMC is integrated with 1GB DDR and 4GB eMMC memory and supports Linux 3.0 and Android 4.3.
The SMARC-EVK1 evaluation kit that also includes a cable kit can be purchased for quick start reference to develop a custom carrier board. The carrier board, RP-100-SMC, features a broad range of interface options for design development flexibility that include GbE, audio, USB OTG, USB and COM ports on the same side of the board, as well as two CAN, eight GIO, Mini PCIe, Micro SD and SIM sockets. IBASE also provides the carrier board schematics, review service, test reports, and FAE debug service during the engineering development phase.
