F&S: WLAN/ BT and MIPI-DSI on 35 x 40mm only

The first member of the new and compact PicoCORE COM product family by F&S Elektronik Systeme is offered with the NXP i.MX 7ULP ARM based Applications Processor. Further pin compatible PicoCORE COMs will follow. NXP enables its heterogeneous concept with Linux running on the ARM® Cortex-A7 core and FreeRTOS running on the ARM Cortex-M4 core. The AP offers OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenVG 1.1 3D and 2D Graphics Accelerator for media applications. There are up to 1GB LPDDR3 RAM and up to 32GB eMMC, as well as USB OTG, 2x I2C, SPI, 2x UART and SDIO available.

The board comes with a MIPI-DSI interface for easy connection to displays. A resistive/ PCAP touch panel can be connected via I2C. Another option is an onboard WLAN/BT4.1 module (pre-certified). The PicoCORE™ standard uses two plug connectors (Hirose DF40C) with 80 pins each. This enables a compact shape and short board-to-board distance. The power supply of PicoCORE is 5V, the power consumption is about 1W.

The available operating system is Linux (kernel 4.1.15, Yocto); it has already been ported by the experienced software team of F&S Elektronik Systeme. Bootloader, customized interface drivers and all tools needed for development are ready to download.

Several security functions were made available by F&S‘s customized Linux OS. The F&S project guarantee accompanies the customer from the start until the successful finish of the project. Starter kits, workshops, hardware and software documentations, as well as free support by the experienced engineers pave the way to customers’ success. PicoCOREMX7ULP will be available until minimum 2028. PicoCOREMX7ULP will be introduced at Embedded World 2018.
