iMX6 Rex Development kit Basic

This Open Source Hardware and Software project is targeting skilled development teams demanding high computing power and high speed peripherals.

The system offers up to 2GB of soldered DDR3 RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, HDMI, USB, PCI Express, SD/MMC for storage and 3D video and graphics acceleration.

It was designed by FEDEVEL Academy, which focuses at ARM boards Schematic and PCB design courses.

Peripherals availability
Both Basic and Pro configuration iMX6 Rex Modules are equipped with one 60pin High Speed Ground Plane Socket on position J1 that provides access to all of the basic, must-have peripherals.
The Pro configuration iMX6 Rex Module is equipped also with the second 60pin High Speed Ground Plane Socket on position J2 that contains signals for the following peripherals:
• Audio
• SD
• 2x I2C
For more details about the peripherals location on J1 and J2 high speed ground plane sockets see the iMX6 Rex Module block diagram.

Embedded system advantages
iMX6 Rex development system based on i.MX6D ARM CortexTM-A9 core clocked up to 1.2GHz has been designed to significantly reduce one's own application development time as well as the final device time to market by allowing:
• parallel software and hardware development
• variable usage of the iMX6 Rex Computer On Module (COM), which includes all of the technologically and development demanding parts
access to complete documentation including PCB, BOM, Altium Project files and more
