Toradex launched a pair of Colibri COMs built around NXP’s low-power, Cortex-A7- and -M4-based i.MX 7 Solo and Dual SoCs, featuring -20 to 85°C operation.
As promised last September, Toradex has shipped one of the first computer-on-modules based on NXP’s i.MX7 system-on-chips. It does not appear to be the first, as CompuLab promised to ship its CL-SOM-iMX7 COM in Jan. 2016. Toradex can, however, claim to have the smallest i.MX7 module to date — its 67.6 x 36.7mm dimensions beat out the 68 x 42mm CompuLab module.
The 800MHz Colibri iMX7S and 1GHz Colibri iMX7D are based on the single- and dual-core Cortex-A7 i.MX7 SoCs, respectively, that were announced last June by Freescale before it merged with NXP. Each SoC is further equipped with a 200MHz Cortex-M4 microcontroller, enabling real-time processing and sensor and actuator control, thereby strengthening the platform’s support for Internet of Things applications.
