The phyCARD-XL3-i.MX6 SOM is populated with the Freescale i.MX6 providing scalability of computing performance through offered single, dual, and quad core variants. Additionally, due to identical break-out of interface signals per PHYTEC’s innovative X-Arc embedded bus standard, the phyCARD-XL3-i.MX6 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.
