The Linux BSP (fsimx6-V2.0) is based on Buildroot, a software to create Root filesystems. Up to circa 400 different software packages can be added menu-driven to the Root filesystem. The functions range from easy libraries and utilities to a complete Java environment up to full graphic enviroments like Qt or X11, including applications such as a HTML5-capable web browser. All this offers an easy way to compile a customized Linux system.
Our standard configuration should give you a first impression of the function range of the module, it contains among other features:

Busybox, gdb, alsa-utils, gstreamer, directFB, fbv, X11R7, matchbox, feh, openssl, openssh, glib2, tslib, libv4l, ncurses, can-utils, iproute2, ftpd, httpd, telnet, tftp, u.v.m.

The BSP contains the F&S customized source code packages of U-boot (2014.01), Linux Kernel (based on 3.0.35) and Buildroot (2014.02). We have also added our Cross-Toolchain, some example applications, as well as all Binaries in the standard configuration. Last but not least, it includes comprehensive hardware documents and a First-Steps documentation for an easy start.

Regardless of the regular BSP, we also offer a pre-configured Ubuntu Root filesystem for download. The complete function range of a Ubuntu distribution is available via the internal package management.

Windows Embedded Compact 2013

The highly flexible and hard real-time operating system has kernel, interface drivers and bootloader. It benefits from all the features of a modern CPU, such as ARMv7 THUMB2 command structure or NEON co-processor.
Complete images and the BSP are available in our download area.
Development is done with the latest Microsoft tools like Visual Studio 2013 (C, C++, C# or VB.NET) and Expression Blend 5.
Interfaces like I²C, CAN or SPI can be used in the same way like a RS232 interface.
XAML for Windows Embedded helps to separate visualisation and program the easy way.

Our FailSafe Flash File System F3S is also available in Compact 2013.

The SBC... ...with convincing equipment

Applicable without Base Board

The advantage of Single Board Computers (SBC) is, that they can be applied without a base board, and therefore they are especially suited for quick "Time-To-Market". armStone™A9r2 uses an i.MX 6Solo/DualLite/QuadPlus ARM Cortex-A9 processor (3D, 2D, OpenGL, OpenVG).

Long Term Availablility

A highlight of this CPU is its long availability for more than 15 years (NXP Product Longevity Program).

Various Interfaces
(Wifi, Bluetooth,...)

armStone™A9r2 comes with up to 4GByte DDR3 SDRAM, up to 1GByte SLC Flash, and additional 32GB eMMC. Special features compared to armStone™A9 are Wifi, Bluetooth and camera interface.

 

Further interfaces are Gigabit Ethernet, 4x USB 2.0 Host, USB 2.0 Device, 2x CAN, I²C, 2x SPI, Audio, SATA, PCIe and 5x serial interfaces.

For display control, 2-channel LVDS and DVI are available simultaneously (with different content also).
It is also possible to connect a resistive or capacitive touch panel via I²C.

A supply voltage of 5V causes a power consumption of about 4W, so the armStone™A9r2 can be applied without a fan or cooling device.

armStone™A9r2 allows an unprecedented combination of high-end computer graphic at simultaneously extremely low power loss.
