The embedded development system based on i.MX515 ARM CortexTM - A8 CPU clocked up to 800MHz was designed to be used as a fully functional embedded PC or as a development platform for the i.MX51 SODIMM Module Max, which includes all of the technologically and development demanding parts, thus significantly reducing products time-to-market.
The development kit can be supplied in various configurations, which enables fine tuning of the targeted device specification. Moreover, it allows a simple replacement by other two cross-compatible COMs, the i.MX53 SODIMM Module or i.MX25 SODIMM Module, representing a possibility of getting economic system out of powerful one.
To make the custom baseboard design even easier, Voipac provides the schematic of the i.MX51 SODIMM Module and the complete Altium Designer project of the i.MX25 SODIMM Base Board.
The i.MX51 SODIMM PC - Development Kit further provides configurable switches, buttons, GPIO pins and LEDs for simple user interaction, thus simplifying programming of one's own applications. Besides all the standard PC peripheral interfaces, the system supports numerous communication channels as well as universal expansion slots and connectors.
The i.MX51 SODIMM Module Max comes with a preinstalled OS based on Linux kernel 2.6.35 and GNU utilities. Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread is available upon request.
