iMX7 Dual COM Board

Embedded Artists' iMX7 Dual COM Board is equipped with NXP's dual-core Cortex-A7/Cortex-M4 based i.MX 7Dual processor, lots of on-board memory and an efficient Power Management IC.

The board is suitable for a wide range of applications that requires advanced communication, real-time control and graphic displays.

The board has low-power focus:

  • the iMX7 is very power efficient to begin with,
  • has on-board DDR3L memory, and
  • PMIC has high conversion efficiency over a wide range of loads.

The heterogeneous system architecture enables the system to run an OS like Linux on the dual-core Cortex-A7 and a Real-Time OS (RTOS) on the Cortex-M4:

  • clear separation of real-time tasks from general server and graphical releated processing
  • can save power if the Cortex-M4 core performs preprocessing before the more power hungry Cortex-A7 cores are activated

Use the iMX7 Dual COM Developer's Kit to get up-and-running quickly with the board.
