The phyCORE-i.MX6 SOM is the smallest industrial i.MX 6 design available on the market. The compact phyCORE-i.MX6 SOM is highly scalable supporting NXP i.MX 6Solo, Dual, or Quad processor variants and with configuration options for DDR3, eMMC, and SLC NAND. In addition to PHYTECs standard board-to-board connectors, the phyCORE-i.MX6 is also available in a connectorless variant utilizing PHYTEC's Direct Solder Connect technology. Combining cost efficiency and high demand performance the phyCORE-i.MX6 is suited well for deployment in a broad range of solutions.
