i.MX6 UltraLite Evaluation Kit

tx-reverse-160pxi.MX6 UltraLite Evaluation Kit with TRITON-TX6UL

Low-cost baseboard with Wi-Fi, Dual Ethernet, up to 8 UARTs

This new, tiny Mainboard family baseboard offers some interesting features, including up to 8 UARTs (3x RS-232 and 2x RS-485), dual Ethernet and Wi-Fi, and is supplied complete with a TRITON-TX6UL i.MX6 UltraLite module with 256Mb RAM and 4GB eMMC.

Operating from a 5V supply and measuring just 100mm x 45mm, the new Evaluation Kit is an ideal platform for experimentation with the TRITON-TX6UL’s mainline (4.4) kernel-based Linux distribution.

There is a connector for an EDT “family” capacitive touch-screen display, as well as RTC, dual USB and dual CAN ports.

WiFi is provided by a Silicon Labs WF111 802.11 b/g/n module via an SDIO interface.

The board can also be used with other TRITON-TX family modules, but dual Ethernet will only work with TRITON-TX6ULL i.MX6 ULL module, and other modules may also have a reduced complement of UARTs.

You can now purchase the i.MX6 UltraLite Kit at our online shop.

calendarGuaranteed lifetime is a key reason to choose us – some TRITON products have already been shipping for over 10 years. The TRITON-TX module family is guaranteed to be available, in small or large quantities for at least 10 years. 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.
