Toradex Announces An Upcoming Computer on Module Based on Freescale's i.MX 7 Processor

Horw, Switzerland – The announcement of Freescale's i.MX 7 processor has created a lot of excitement here at Toradex, a leading vendor of ARM based Computer on Modules (COMs). Toradex will be among the few hardware partners showcasing a platform based on the i.MX 7 processor, during Freescale's official launch of the same, early next year.

Toradex is pleased to extend its existing portfolio of COMs, by announcing its commitment to launch a new COM based on Freescale's i.MX 7 processor. The new module will offer a robust and secured platform for building products targeted toward IoT applications. Using this COM, designers can leverage the asymmetric multi-core architecture on Freescale i.MX 7 to develop products with excellent user-experience without compromising on real-time constraints. Toradex already offers COMs based on Freescale Vybrid and i.MX 6 processors.

Toradex's 16 different COMs from its Colibri family, even though based on different processors, offer pin-compatibility and thus enable a seamless migration path for customers to enhance their end-products by accommodating leading edge technologies without redesign cost and effort. 

Availability and Pricing

These modules will be available during the official launch of Freescale i.MX 7 processor early next year. Prices of these modules will be also announced then.

About Computer on Modules (COMs)

A Computer on Module (COM) / System on Module (SOM) is a small form-factor, ready-to-use computing solution that consists of a generic hardware along with a highly optimized operating system.

Reusing an off-the-shelf COM for an embedded product will accelerate time-to-market and while in parallel significantly reduce the risk of the development project. Due to the generic architecture of Toradex' COMs almost any application can be built from it, whether it be medical, industrial automation, aerospace, robotics, etc.
