CM-FX6 is a miniature computer-on-module (CoM) / system-on-module (SoM) board designed to serve as a building block in embedded applications. CM-FX6 is based on the Freescale i.MX6 application processor featuring a highly scalable single/dual/quad core Cortex-A9 CPU at up to 1.2GHz coupled with powerful graphics and video processing units. The processor is supplemented with up-to 4GB DDR3 and 32GB of on-board SSD. In addition, the CM-FX6 features extensive connectivity with a wide range of industry standard interfaces – GbE, PCIe, SATA, USB, RS232 and CAN bus.

CM-FX6 is provided with comprehensive documentation and full ready-to-run SW support for Linux, Android and Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating systems.
