tx-reverse-160pxTRITON-TX6QP Module with i.MX6 Quad Plus

Tiny Production Quality SoM with enhanced NXP quad core  ARM Cortex-A9 processor

tx6-250TRITON-TX6QP based on the industrial-spec. i.MX6 QuadPlus marks the top of the range of a family of tiny 68mm x 31mm SODIMM system-on-modules based on NXP’s iMX6 processors. Sister products in the immediate i.MX6 module family feature Quad, Dual-Lite, Solo and UltraLite processors, while the wider TRITON-TX family offers the industry’s broadest range of compatible modules, all with a guaranteed 10 year availability.

The i.MX6 Quad Plus processor features increased memory bandwith, enhanced internal bus structure, and uprated graphics performance, delivering at least 50% performance improvement over i.MX6 Quad in most applications. The TRITON-TX6QP comes with 2048MB of 64-bit DDR3-1066 RAM and a Hi-Rel 4GB eMMC. Dual capacitive and resistive touch screen displays are supported.  In addition, the i.MX6 provides a wide range of connectivity including PCI Express as well as two high speed OTG-capable USB 2.0 ports, dual camera and dual CAN interfaces. TRITON-TX6QP comes with a Yocto “Rocko” build, and mainline Linux kernel. Our Linux BSP provides verified support for Qt Embedded v 4/5 and X11. QNX 7.0 is also supported.

The i.MX6 based TRITON-TX6 modules take a single 3.0 to 5.5v supply and provide an up to 300mA 3.3V power output for use on the baseboard. The Quad Plus TRITON-TX6QP is the only quad core member of the family to feature full industrial (-40C to +85C) temperature spec.

The TRITON-TX6QP brings ultimate performance to a range of applications including medical devices, digital signage, and industrial multimedia products.. A comparison of our i.MX6 modules is available here.

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.

txmainboardloMainboard-7 provides a complete development environment based on TRITON-TX6QP, running Yocto-built 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, SATA, 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.
