Boundary Devices introduces the next generation of the Nitrogen6X-SOM – the Nit6X_SOM_V2. The Nit6X_SOM_V2 is fully compatible with the previous Nitrogen6X-SOM, but with some notable improvements. As with the previous version, the Nit6X_SOM_V2 is a low cost, highly integrated System-on-Module based on the NXP/Freescale i.MX6 Single/Dual/Quad-Core CPU.  The SOM is ideal for customers looking for rapid product development while maintaining the flexibility of a custom design.  For the V2 SOM, there were some notable improvements:

  • 4GB eMMC
  • 2nd LVDS Channel
  • Modified power supply architecture to support i.MX6 Quad PLUS processor
  • Modified DDR3 layout to support up to 4GB DDR3

  The Nit6X_SOM_V2 has 10 year guaranteed availability and industrial temperature versions including conformal coating options.  The Nit6X_SOM_V2 can be built with Single, Dual Lite, Dual, Quad, and Quad PLUS Processors as well as from 512MB DDR3 up to 4GB. Contact us for more information.

Design your own carrier board or contact us for a custom carrier board quote. If designing your own carrier board, send us your schematics and layout for a no cost, high level review.

The Nit6X_SOM_V2 supports the following operating systems: Yocto, Ubuntu, Buildroot, and Android 6.

NOTE:  Nit6X_SOM_V2 requires a different Uboot/Kernel than Nitrogen6X_SOM due to on-board eMMC.
