The Nitrogen6_MAX is a turbo-charged version of our popular Nitrogen6X platform. The Nitrogen6_MAX is an i.MX6 single board computer that features the same Quad-Core i.MX6 processor from NXP/Freescale as the Nitrogen6X, but has some other notable upgrades to allow for high-end performance. The i.MX6 series of applications processors combines scalable platforms with broad levels of integration and power-efficient processing capabilities particularly suited to multimedia applications. One key feature of the Nitrogen6_MAX is that it can also support the latest i.MX6 Quad PLUS processor from NXP/Freescale. The Nitrogen6_MAX has the following upgrades over the Nitrogen6X:

  • 4GB DDR3 Memory for enhanced caching of video and graphics
  • 2 LVDS Outputs for dual-display or dual-channel 1080P displays
  • 4GB eMMC for high-speed storage
  • On-Board mPCIE connector with both PCIe and USB interfaces
  • 2W Audio Amplifier to directly drive speakers
  • RS485
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi/Bluetooth (LSR TiWI BLE) comes standard

As with the Nitrogen6X, there are a variety of accessories including: MIPI and Parallel Cameras, 7” 1280×800 LVDS display with PCAP multi-touch, 10.1″ 1280×800 display with PCAP multi-touch, Android Button board, and more. See compatible products section below for full list.

The Nitrogen6_MAX can be de-populated for cost reductions, built to industrial temperature specifications, and conformal coated. Please contact us for more information.

Nit6Q_MAX is the standard part number.  There are 2 slightly modified versions:
Nit6QP_MAX:  This version is exactly the same except that it features the i.MX6 Quad PLUS processor from NXP.  Please note, this is not software compatible with the regular Nit6Q_MAX 
Nit6Q_MAX_QCA:  This version has a new WiFi+BT module.  802.11 ac + BT4.1 based on the QCA9377.
