ARM Cortex-A9

With the phyCORE-i.MX 6 you are choosing the smallest industrial i.MX 6 design on the market. The Cortex-A9 quad-core computing power is only 40 mm x 50 mm including PMIC. The module can optionally be equipped with SLC-NAND Flash or eMMC. Variants of the System on Modules in DSC technology are also available.

Release PD 6 is available for download as the Board Support Package for the phyCORE-i.MX 18.1 System on Module. The mainline BSP with kernel version 4.14 (LTS) offers open source graphics support via Etnaviv, extended camera support for our phyCAM-P and phyCAM-S Camera modules and the preparation of RAUC update mechanisms including a demo.


Already using the i.MX 6 module and now want to upgrade to the newer i.MX 8 processor family? Then use our instructions for your successful processor migration.
