Embedded Artists' iMX7 Dual uCOM Board is tiny - only 27 x 37 mm - but is a very powerful platform!
It is equipped with NXP's dual-core Cortex-A7/Cortex-M4 based i.MX 7Dual processor, lots of on-board memory and a very efficient Power Management IC from ROHM.
The board is perfect for battery-powered portable devices where space and power consumption are importnat parameters. The board is also suitable for a wide range of industrial applications that requires advanced communication, real-time control and graphic displays.
The module has low-power focus:
the iMX7 is very power efficient to begin with,
has on-board LP-DDR3 memory,
ROHM's PMIC has high conversion efficiency over a wide range of loads, and
has an on-chip battery charger
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
Operating Temperature: 0 - 70 degrees Celsius (standard) or -20 to +85 degrees Celsius (extended, on request)
Operating Humidity: 5 - 90% relative humidity, non-condensing
