Designed and manufactured in the USA, the DEV-IOT6U ARM based IOT development kit is your IOT starting point. Based on EMAC’s SoM-iMX6U which is an ultra low power ARM System on Module (SoM) plugged into the EMAC SOM-112ES carrier board that contains all the connectors and I/O required for a system. The SoM-iMX6U is based on the Freescale/NXP i.MX6 UltraLite ARM Cortex A7 processor and has ARM Sleep Mode of 3.5mA.
This system on module is a small embedded SBC that contains the core of a microprocessor system. The SoM-iMX6U is an industrial wide temperature, ultra-low power 528 MHz module with 4GB of eMMC Flash, 8MB of serial data flash, and 512MB of LP DDR2 RAM. The module has 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, 5x serial ports (4x without handshake and 1x with handshake). This configuration is to allow a user to start or continue developing a product while finalizing a custom product design and features.
This approach allows clients to develop a product using a commercial off the shelf (COTS) system development/baseboard/carrier board for the proof of concept or production units. If the product or project has specific dimensional, I/O or connector placement requirements a custom carrier board can be created in as little as a month. Use of an off-the-shelf carrier board allows clients to start developing their software while the custom carrier board is being designed and build. Using the SoM approach, product lifecycle concerns for the processor, memory and other SoM based components are minimized.
The System On Module approach provides the flexibility of a fully customized product at a greatly reduced cost.
EMAC is a global leader in the ARM system on module and carrier board embedded system design. The System on Module (SoM) is an ideal alternative to custom engineering. With the SoM approach you get the best of aspects of both buying an Off-The-Shelf Embedded Single Board Computer (SBC) and a Custom Engineered solution. With Off-The-Shelf embedded components such as a generic carrier board and SOM module, it is possible to start development on your software applications before the custom carrier board is complete; thus offering a reduced time to market for your system. A System on Module (SoM) is comprised of a small processor module with CPU bus accessibility and standard I/O functionality. The SoM module does not have any connectorization and is designed to be plugged into a Carrier Board.
