The i.MX6 processor sports a wider and faster memory bus (64-bit DDR3 1066), integrated HDMI, Gigabit ethernet and additional display channels with a high level of integration. 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.  The Nitrogen6X embedded single board computer was designed to take advantage of the powerful features of the i.MX6.

The Nitrogen6X is a single board computer that can be used for both development purposes or mass production.  The board allows customers to evaluate the i.MX6 processor before committing to a custom design.  The Nitrogen6X has also been designed for mass production use with a guaranteed 10 year life span, FCC Pre-scan results, and a stable supply chain.  As with all Boundary Devices products, the Nitrogen6X can be customized by de-populating unused components for cost reduction. In addition, industrial temperature versions as well as conformal coating options are available. Please contact us for more information.  

The Nitrogen6X is available with a variety of accessories which can be found in the compatible products section below including: 5MP Cameras, 7” and 10″ display with resistive and capacitive touch, Android Button board, and more.

The Nitrogen6X can support Power over Ethernet applications by modifying the RJ45 Ethernet jack to a POE-compliant version. Contact us for POE versions.
