The SOM-1062M is an ARM System on Module (SoM) based on the RT1062, which is an NXP MIMXRT1062 i.MX RT Crossover MCU processor, with a Cortex-M7 ARM Core. Designed and manufactured in the USA, this industrial temperature 600 MHz SoM utilizes 16MB of Serial Data Flash, 32 MB of onboard NAND Flash and has 13MB of SDRAM. Additional Flash storage can be had using the modules SDIO interface allowing the use of external SD flash cards.
The SOM-1062M is optimized for use in industrial computing designs, building Automation, motor control and power conversion, audio subsystems and consumer products. Its ability to drive an LCD with a touchscreen makes it an optimal HMI system for smart interfaces
The SOM-1062M has 4x Serial Ports, 2x 10/100 BaseT Ethernet(1x PHy on Module), 2x USB 2.0 High Speed Host Ports, 1x USB 2.0 High Speed OTG Host/Device Port, 4x channels of 12-bit A/D, 4-Wire Resistive Touch Controller, and a 16-bit LCD Controller. The module also features an External Address/Data Bus for easy expansion, an Internal Real Time Clock/Calendar with external battery backup provision, 22x GPIO Lines, and 2x Timer/Counters/PWM. The SOM-1062M has 1x Synchronous Serial I/O (I2S) Audio port, 2x SPI Ports, 2x I2C Port, 1x CAN Ports, SDIO, and on module status (software controlled) LED.
Using the same small 200 pin SODIMM form-factor utilized by other EMAC SoM modules, the SOM-1062M is the ideal processor engine for your next design. All of the ARM processor core functionality is included on this tiny board including: Flash, Memory, Serial Ports, Ethernet, I2S Audio, PWMs, Timer/Counters, A/D, digital I/O lines, Clock/Calendar, and more.
The SOM-1062M is designed to plug into a carrier board that contains all the connectors and any custom I/O required for the application. This approach allows the customer or EMAC to design a custom carrier board that meets the I/O, dimensional, and connector requirements without having to worry about the processor, memory, and standard I/O functionality. With this System on Module approach, a semi-custom hardware platform can be developed in as little as a month.
The IMX RT 1062 CPU is in the NXP i.MX RT1060 processor family features NXP’s advanced implementation of the Arm Cortex®-M7 core, which operates at speeds up to 600 MHz to provide high CPU performance and best real-time response.
The i.MX RT1060 processor has 1 MB on-chip RAM. 512 KB can be flexibly configured as TCM or general-purpose on-chip RAM, while the other 512 KB is general-purpose on-chip RAM. The i.MX RT1060 integrates an advanced power management module with DCDC and LDO that reduces the complexity of external power supply and simplifies power sequencing. The i.MX RT1060 also provides various memory interfaces, including SDRAM, RAW NAND FLASH, NOR FLASH, SD/eMMC, Quad SPI, and a wide range of other interfaces for connecting peripherals, such as WLAN, Bluetooth™, GPS, displays, and camera sensors. The i.MX RT1060 has rich audio and video features, including LCD display, basic 2D graphics, camera interface, SPDIF, and I2S audio interface. The i.MX RT1060 has analog interfaces, such as ADC, ACMP, and TSC.
In addition to the option of developing a custom carrier board, one can be purchased off-the-shelf from EMAC. EMAC provides off-the-shelf Carrier boards that feature A/D, D/A, MMC/SD card, keypad, LCD, Audio, and Modem interfaces. The recommended off-the-shelf carrier board for the SoM-3354 is the SoM-200GS or SOM-250GS which allows you to immediately start coding your application using EMAC OE Linux and Qt Development tools.
EMAC is a global leader in system on module and carrier board embedded systems. 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.
