Taipei, Taiwan – March 2018 — Artila Electronics, which specializes in the development and manufacture of Linux-ready arm embedded industrial computers, is pleased to announce
Artila’s new SODIMM module based on NXP i.MX6ULL ARM Cortex A7 CPU core operating up to 800MHz speed with Linux OS. The new M-X6ULL is designed to meet the needs of many general embedded applications that require power efficient, high performance and cost optimized solution, as well as embedded systems that require high-end multimedia applications in a small form factor, this cost effective M-X6ULL is ultra-compact in size with the form factor of 68 x 43 mm. In addition, M-X6ULL has 200-pins connectors to allow extension of more I/Os for peripheral signals like two 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, LCD, CAN, UART, USB, SD and I2C.
Linux kernel 4.14 is pre-installed on the eMMC and the PREEMPT_RT patch provides a unique solution when real-time interactive interfaces and connectivity are crucial requirements. The M-X6ULL equips 24-bit digital parallel display interface supports resolution up to 1366 x768 and the touch controller can support 4-wire and 5-wire resistive touch panel which brings powerful touch-screen performance to the embedded users.
Artila team provides Comprehensive software packages such as PHP, Python, Perl, Node.js and Node-RED which are available for free, and users can find the updates from Artila repository by using apt-get command. Moreover, Artila offers another solution to reduce the material cost, customers could choose a light version of M-X6ULL with the removal of eMMC and with a micro-SD socket replacement is available by request.
The M-X6ULL system on module is integrated with512MB DDR3 SDRAM and 4GB eMMC, which is ideally suitable for the cost & power optimized general embedded and industrial applications. The major target applications of this module are Industrial HMI & Access Control, IOT gateway, Industrial control & automation and Test and measurement.
Artila Electronics is an emerging force in the industrial computer field, dedicated to minimizing mass while maximizing utility. Unlike other industrial computer providers in the market who mainly use x86 plus Windows solutions, Artila focuses on arm-core RISC CPUs with embedded Linux solutions, matched with Artila’s 10 plus years of experience in RS-232 / 422 / 485 industrial communication and TCP/IP networking. Artila’s product range consists of Intelligent IoT Gateway, IoT Device Platform, arm / Linux box computers, arm / Linux SOMs (system-on-modules), Programmable Automation Controller, and Serial-to-Ethernet embedded modules.
