Freescale Cortex-A9 i.MX6 COM evaluation kit range
07 October 2014
Advantech announced a range of Evaluation Kits (EVK) for Computer-on-Modules powered by the Freescale ARM Cortex-A9 i.MX6.
Advantech offers various EVKs for multiple RISC-based Computer-on-Module (COM) hardware platforms including Qseven, SMARC and RTX 2.0; so users can benefit from worry-free evaluation without purchasing any additional items.
Optimised design for COM RISC module
The full-range of Advantech Computer-on-Module EVKs was designed for evaluating function and performance validation, hardware design and application development. A reference design of each carrier board provides valid samples of all its features, and the integrated I/O and chips offer further reference designs to help users develop their own carrier boards. The evaluation board can be used for trouble shooting and as a benchmark for cross comparison.
Easy performance validation under different OS
Advantech EVKs were released along with Advantech's optimised OS image in Linux, Android, Ubuntu and WinCE, so users can validate the performance of different OS through one single hardware platform. In addition, the source code of the supported OS can be obtained for free through Advantech's sales channels, and related documents such as carrier board schematics, reference design guide, and user manuals are all downloadable from the product website; so customers can efficiently improve validation and development.
Peripheral support and driver integration
Furthermore, Advantech provides a compatible peripheral list for each Evaluation Kit to show clear information to those who need Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, Camera and more. The compatibility of peripheral devices have been tested and approved and the drivers have been well integrated and verified. All compatible peripheral devices can be obtained through Advantech's sales channels and online store with the same warranty and customer service as the EVKs.
The standard package for each EVK includes a ROM series RISC-based Computer-on-Module, a corresponding Evaluation Carrier Board, Power Adapter, LVDS panel and cables for device connection. A heat spreader/semi-heatsink is also enclosed in the EVK package to provide an ideal thermal solution for high temperature environments. Available models are listed below.
