Designed and manufactured in the USA, the SoM-iMX6U is an ultra low power System on Module (SoM) designed to plug into an EMAC carrier board that contains all the connectors and I/O required for a system. The SoM-iMX6U is based on the Freescale/NXP i.MX6 UltraLite Cortex A7 processor and has ARM Sleep Mode of 3.5mA.

A SoM is a small embedded module that contains the core of a microprocessor system. The SoM-iMX6U is industrial wide temperature, ultra-low power 528 MHz module with 4GB of eMMC Flash, 8MB of serial data flash, and 512MB of LP DDR2 RAM. The module has 10/100 BaseT Ethernet, 5x serial ports (4x without handshake and 1x with handshake). The recommended development / carrier board is the SoM-112 or SoM-150 carrier board.

The SoM approach allows clients to develop a product using a commercial off the shelf (COTS) development/baseboard/carrier board for the proof of concept or production units. If the product or project has specific dimensional, I/O or connector placement requirements a custom carrier board can be created in as little as a month. Use of an off-the-shelf carrier board allows clients to start devloping their software while the custom carrier board is being designed and build. Using the SoM approach, product lifecycle concerns for the processor, memory and other SoM based components are minimized.

The System On Module approach provides the flexibility of a fully customized product at a greatly reduced cost.
