iMX7 Dual uCOM Board

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

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