Description

The SBC-FX6 is a single board computer based on the Freescale i.MX6 CPU. It is implemented with a CM-FX6 computer-on-module providing most of the functions, and a SB-FX6 carrier board providing connectors and several additional functions. The rich feature set of the SBC-FX6 is customizable according to the price / performance needs of the target application.

The SBC-FX6 contains expansion connectors which accommodate a wide range of standard peripheral devices. Wide input range switched power supply is compatible with requirements for telecom and automotive applications.

For feature support status, please refer to O/S Support Coverage Map .
  • The "SB Option" column specifies the P/N code of SB-FX6 carrier board required to have the particular feature. The "CM Option" column specifies the P/N code of CM-FX6 required to have the particular feature. SBC-FX6 feature-set is the combination of features provided by the attached CM-FX6 and the features implemented on the SB-FX6. To have the particular feature, both the CM and SB options of that feature must be implemented.
  • "+" means that the feature is always available, regardless of P/N code.
