The i.MX RT1050 is the industry's first crossover processor, combining the high performance and high level of integration of an application processor with the ease of use and real-time functionality.
The i.MX RT1050 is the industry's first crossover processor, combining the high performance and high level of integration of an application processor with the ease of use and real-time functionality of a microcontroller.
F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH continues to expand the successful and compact PicoCore™ product family. This Computer On Module is the perfect solution for portable devices in industrial technology and also for all cost-sensitive applications with TFT display.
It uses a NXP i.MX RT1050 ARM Cortex-M7 CPU with up to 600MHz.
For the internal working memory a SDRAM is available and for the program memory SPI NOR/NAND Flash (high reliability) is offered. An external SD-Card slot is also possible.
The two 80-pin connectors (1.5-4mm board-to-board space) bring a variety of interfaces on the baseboard. This results in compact size and a small board-to-board distance.
The following interfaces are possible: 1x Ethernet, 2x USB, 2x CAN, 4x I2C, 2x SPI, 2x UART, Audio (Line In/ Out/ Mic/ Headphone or I2S), SDIO for SD-Card slot, PWM, GPIO and ADC.
A 16-bit RGB interface is provided as display connection and TFTs up to WXGA can be controlled. For the connection of a PCAP touch panel, one of the I2C interfaces is used.
RTC is also available. The power supply is 5V, the power consumption is less than 1W (typ.) and the temperature range is 0°C - +70°C or -40°C - + 85°C.
The operating system is FreeRTOS. It is already prepared for development by the experienced software team of F&S Elektronik Systeme.
F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH also offers customer-specific boards based on the i.MX RT1050 CPU (we are looking forward to receiving the specification of your preferred module).
The F&S project guarantee by F&S Elektronik Systeme accompanies its customers from the start of the project to its successful completion. Starterkits (also with 7"" TFT) and workshops, documents for hardware and software development and free support by the experienced engineers of F&S Elektronik Systeme are available.
PicoCore™RT1 is available until minimum 2030. Further PicoCore™ modules, also pin-compatible with Cortex®-A7/-A9 CPU of the i.MX 6 CPU family, are offered.
The PicoCore™RT1 can be purchased directly from F&S Elektronik Systeme or from one of its worldwide distribution partners.
