Cost-efficient and secure

The phyCORE®-i.MX 6 SOM is the smallest industrial i.MX 6 design available on the market. The compact phyCORE-i.MX 6 SOM is highly scalable supporting NXP i.MX 6Solo, Dual, or Quad processor variants and with the configuration options for DDR3, eMMC, and SLC NAND. In addition to PHYTEC’s standard board-to-board connectors, the phyCORE-i.MX 6 is also available in a connectionless variant utilizing PHYTEC’s Direct Solder Connect technology. Combining cost efficiency and high demand performance the phyCORE-i.MX 6 is well suited for deployment in a broad range of solutions.

Board-To-Board Interfaces

phyCORE-i.MX 6 interfaces are routed to our high-density PCB interconnects on the underside of the SOM. Design a carrier board to mate with the phyCORE-i.MX 6. In addition to PHYTEC’s standard board-to-board connectors, phyCORE-i.MX 6 is also available in a connectionless variant utilizing PHYTEC’s Direct Solder Connect technology. 

Multimedia Performance

Loaded with Vivante GC2000 3D and Vivante GC355/GC320 2D graphics accelerators the phyCORE-i.MX 6 SOM family is ideal for advanced graphics. In addition phyCORE-i.MX 6 supports 1080p60 Decode, 1080p30 Encode, and camera interfaces.

Flexible Memory Options

phyCORE-i.MX 6 utilizes a dual-flash-footprint that allows for populating SLC NAND or eMMC. Does your product require the increased write cycles of SLC NAND? You can have NAND. Does your product require more storage space OR do you want protection from EOL NAND issues? Populate an eMMC option. 

Footprint

With dimensions of 50 mm x 40 mm the phyCORE-i.MX 6 is well suited for small enclosures
