tx-reverse-160pxTRITON-TX6S System-on-Module with i.MX6 Solo

Budget Production Quality SoM with NXP ARM Cortex-A9 processor

tx6-250TRITON-TX6S is one of a family of tiny 68mm x 31mm SODIMM system-on-modules based on Freescale’s (now NXP) iMX6 processors, which are in turn part of the pin-compatible TRITON-TX module family. The TRITON-TX6S is based on NXP’s industrial version i.MX6 Solo SoC featuring a single-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor running at  800MHz, while the TRITON-TX6DL features the reduced specification i.MX6 Dual Lite processor with dual-core ARM Cortex-A9, and the TRITON-TX6Q uses the quad-core version of i.MX6.The TRITON-TX6s comes with 256MB or 512MB of RAM. Dedicated multimedia codecs handle video at up to 1080p. 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-TX6S comes with mainline Linux (4.13) and a Yocto “Rocko” build system. Windows Embedded Compact 7 / Compact 2013 and QNX 7.0 BSPs are optionally available. Our Linux BSP provides verified support for Qt Embedded v 4/5 and X11. Bootable persistent storage is provided in the form of a 128MB NAND Flash, or optionally a 4GB eMMC SSD. 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 TRITON-TX6S brings powerful touch-screen performance to the embedded user, at a budget price, in a range of applications including medical devices, digital signage, and industrial multimedia products. A comparison table 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.
