The phyCARD-S-i.MX27 SOM delivers up to 400 MHz and supports the Freescale™ i.MX27 family of processors based on the ARM®-9 architecture. Due to identical break-out of interface signals per PHYTEC’s innovative X-Arc embedded bus standard, the phyCARD-S is compatible with other phyCARD family members making resources available at a single, 100-pin connector including Ethernet, USB, UART, SPI, I2C, audio, SDIO/MMC, GPIO, JTAG, display (LVDS), and more.
