NEW Ka-Ro TX6ULL Computer-on-Module with NXP i.MX 6ULL
Ka-Ro electronics TXULL is the newest member of the popular TXUL line, based on the NXP i.MX 6ULL processor. Featuring a single-core ARM Cortex A7 processor at speeds up to 792 MHz, the TXULL module is an ideal solution for IoT and industrial automation applications and provides an ideal upgrade to embedded devices currently using ARM9 processors.
The NXP i.MX 6ULL processors’ energy-efficient design means that the TXULL has the lowest power consumption in the Ka-Ro TXUL, line. The TXULL integrates the i.MX 6ULL processor, 512MB of DDR3 RAM and a 4GB eMMC Flash memory. The module also features TFT LCD interface, a camera interface and support for 8 UARTs.
In addition, the TXULL features:
- Two 10/100 Ethernet ports
- Two FlexCAN ports
- Tow High-speed USB 2.0 ports
- I2S,/SAI, I2C and SPI ports
- 12-bit ADC
- 3.3V I/O pins
The TXUL is available in industrial operating range of -25 to 85V as standard, and featuess guaranteed ong-term availability. The TXULL is available for 12 years from release, until at least 2030. The TXULL is part of the TX Family Concept, so it easy to interchange any TX module during development and production as needed to provide optimal performance and BOM cost.
The TXUL COM is designed and manufactured in Aachen Germany in Ka-Ro’s integrated engineering and production facility. In 2018, Ka-Ro celebrates 30 years of quality design and manufacturing.
Integrated Software Support
Ka-Ro’s software development team provides continuing development of Linux and Windows Embedded Board Support Packages (BSPs) for the TXULL. Continuing development means that developers can use the latest Linux kernel to start development – guaranteeing current updates, drivers and security patches. The current TXULL BSP is based on Linux 4.13, and Ka-Ro releases their BSP to mainline Linux, making it easy to use the latest tools and integrate all device drivers needed. In addition to the mainline Linux BSP, Ka-Ro provides support for the TXULL in Yocto Project.
Exclusive Microsoft Windows Embedded Support
Ka-Ro is the only source for a Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSP for the NXP i.MX 6UL and 6ULL processors. Supporting the TXUL and TXULL COMs, Ka-Ro’s Windows Embedded BSP provides a solution to extend the life of products developed with Microsoft Windows CE 6, which is rapidly approaching End-of-Life, and is no longer supported by Microsoft. By migrating existing application code to the TXULL, devices can stay in production until 2030, providing time to create a migration plan to other operating systems.
Only Ka-Ro provides a single source for hardware and software support for continuing Microsoft Windows Embedded development.
