tx-reverse-160pxTRITON-TX6UL Module with i.MX6 UltraLite

Low-cost and low-power with Freescale’s latest processor

TRITON-TX6UL is the latest tiny 68mm x 26mm SODIMM system-on-module based on Freescale’s tx6ulcutlogo250iMX6 processors, which are in turn part of the pin-compatible TRITON-TX module family. The TRITON-TX6UL is based on Freescale’s i.MX6 UltraLite (MCIMXG2) featuring a single-core ARM Cortex-A7 processor running at  528MHz. .The TRITON-TX6UL comes with 256MB DDR3 RAM, and either 128MB NAND Flash or a 4GB eMMC. As well as very low-power operation, the i.MX6 UltraLite offers secure boot and a AES/TDES/SHA crypto-engine.  The module provides a wide range of connectivity including two Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports, a 24bpp LCD controller, camera interface, up to 8 UARTs, SDIO, audio, dual CAN and 12-bit ADC.

TRITON-TX6UL comes with mainline Linux BSP. The i.MX6 based TRITON-TX6 family modules take a single 3.3 to 5.5v supply and provide an up to 300mA 3.3V power output for use on the baseboard.

The TRITON-TX6UL bring powerful touch-screen performance to the embedded user, at a budget price, in a range of applications including medical devices, industrial  products and smart energy devices.

Purpose-built Linux 4.4 BSP

Mainline Linux BSP means very low power consumption, and maximum open-source compatibility

calendarGuaranteed lifetime is a key reason to choose us – some TRITON products have already been shipping for over 10 years. Each member of the TRITON-TX module family is guaranteed to be available, in small or large quantities for at least 10 years from launch. This is a minimum, with expected lifetimes of 15 years where possible. Direct Insight brought the first system-on-module to market in 1999, and has a unique track-record in maintaining partnership with our customers for the long-term, supporting you throughout the product life-cycle.

euBecause the TRITON-TX modules are manufactured in a high-quality small-batch production facility within the EU, there are never problems with manufacturing standards or with supply. If you order 100 modules and we don’t have them in stock, we will make them. Often, cheap modules are produced in large batches by volume-oriented contract manufacturers in the Far East, and once they are gone, they are gone.
tickOur BSPs for both Linux and Windows CE are complete, and are designed so that you can use them without further development or modification. One of the key advantages of the system-on-module approach is rapid time-to-market, and requires a reliable, production-ready BSP, and a ready-to-roll compatible tools setup. For Linux, we supply a pre-configured VM SDK, and for Windows CE, everything is ready to use with Microsoft’s downloadable toolkit.
compatibleFurther to our 10-year longevity guarantee, additional security is provided by the pin-compatible nature of the TRITON-TX range, which means that suitable baseboard designs can take all the modules from this family, including those based on i.MX25, i.MX27, i.MX28, TI AM3354, i.MX51, i.MX53 and i.MX6, and allows older modules to be replaced by the latest designs, with new features, better price-performance, and renewed longevity.
directinsight-logo-100pxStriving for the best technical support provision to our customers is what makes Direct Insight stand out. Using a system-on-module is all about achieving a quicker, smoother route to project completion. We have supported our customers in many hundreds of system-on-module projects over the last 15 years, and are uniquely placed to assist you.
i.MX6 processors have a sophisticatpadlock-300x283ed feature called High Assurance Boot (HAB) which potentially allows the user to secure the device against code modification, while preserving the ability to update. This is achieved by programming public keys into the device, against which the private-key signed image and data are validated. We offer HAB programming during manufacture to enable customers to easily secure their device.

Maintxmainboardloboard-7 provides a complete development environment based on TRITON-TX6UL, running mainline Linux out-of-the-box. The development system consists of a baseboard which provides an unpopulated bank of 0.1″ headers for all 200 module pins (including PCIe), plus connectors for all the main module interfaces, and includes additional peripherals such as an SGTL5000 audio codec. Other connectors include USB, Ethernet, SDCard, CAN, RS-232 and RS-485. The Mainboard-7 offers an optional 640×480 capacitive touch screen, and an LVDS output to enable connection of other screen sizes. For production purposes, you will require a custom baseboard, and we are happy to offer baseboard design and manufacture as a service.
