NXP i.MX6-Based Boards Boast Extended Temp Operation

Versalogic has announced the Zebra, its latest in their new line of production-ready ARM-based embedded computers. Featuring models with either the NXP i.MX6 Solo (single core), or the i.MX6 DualLite (dual core) processors, the Zebra is rated for full industrial temperature operation (-40°C to +85°C). The compact 95 mm x 95 mm computer board typically consumes less than 3 W of power when operating.

Unlike many ARM-based “modules,” Versalogic’s new ARM-based products are complete board-level computers. They do not require additional carrier cards, companion boards, connector break-out boards or other add-ons to function. For ease of mounting and future upgrades, the Zebra product conforms to the size and mounting points of the industry standard COM Compact format. Unlike proprietary-format ARM products, Versalogic ARM boards provide a standardized mounting pattern for simplified upgrading in the future.
The Zebra embedded computer board is ready for off-the-shelf deployment into demanding industrial, defense and aerospace applications requiring rugged, long-life, power efficient, industrial temperature rated (-40°C to +85°C) solutions.

Both Zebra models include soldered-on memory, and a variety of I/O. The on-board I/O includes a Gigabit Ethernet port with network boot capability, two USB 2.0 Ports, serial I/O (RS-232), CAN Bus, I2C, and SPI. An on-board 6-axis e-compass is optional.

Many applications that require lower power or lower heat dissipation still need very high levels of reliability. Designed and tested for industrial temperature (-40° to +85°C) operation, VersaLogic’s Zebra also meets MIL-STD-202G specifications to withstand high impact and vibration.

ARM-based Zebra products, part numbers VL-EPC-2701, are in stock at both Versalogic and Digi-Key. with OEM pricing starting at $168.
