The network-enabled Digi ConnectCore® for i.MX53 family is a highly integrated and future-proof system-on-module (SoM) solution based on the NXP®/Freescale® i.MX53 application processor. It offers a high performance 1 GHz ARM® Cortex®-A8 core, wired and wireless connectivity, powerful 1080p/720p video encoding/decoding capabilities, and a complete peripheral set.
The Digi ConnectCore for i.MX53 family builds on the successful ConnectCore for i.MX51 modules by providing a form factor compatible option with significantly improved processing, memory, video and connectivity capabilities. It is a scalable and energy-efficient module family that is ideal for medical devices, security/surveillance equipment, industrial applications, kiosk systems and digital signage integration.
The ConnectCore for i.MX53 modules combine industry-leading performance, low power consumption and easy design integration with key features like integrated power management IC, on-chip multimedia support, including multi-format 1080p video hardware decoding, 2D/3D graphics acceleration, dual display/camera interface, hardware encryption engine, 802.11abgn Wi-Fi interface (150 Mbps), Bluetooth® 4.0 with HDP support, dual 10/100 Ethernet option, dual-CAN bus, SATA II storage interface and a comprehensive set of additional peripherals.
Modules in the ConnectCore i.MX family feature the design, development and administrative advantages offered by Digi Remote Manager®. This robust cloud platform makes it easy to configure and manage deployments and integrate devices with virtually any application. Device manufacturers can build secure, highly scalable and cost-effective solutions that seamlessly tie assets to applications, regardless of location.
Complete and cost-efficient Digi JumpStart Kits® for Digi Embedded Linux®, Android™ and Microsoft Windows® Embedded Compact 7 allow immediate and professional embedded product development with dramatically reduced design risk and time-to-market. Additional support for Yocto Project® Embedded Linux is also available for download.
