This application processor module is optimized for secure, portable applications that require ultra low power operation and real-time capabilities.

Ultra Low Power

The iMX7ULP uCOM Board has power management implemented throughout the design to enable multimedia features and peripherals to consume minimum power in both active and various low-power modes.
Combining the processor with LPDDR3 memory and Rohm’s efficient BD70528MWV PMIC results in an ultra low power module.

With MIPI-DSI display output, parallel camera input, flexible audio interfaces and comprehensive communication features, the i.MX 7ULP is ideal for multimedia applications.

Heterogeneous Multicore Processing (HMP)

The i.MX 7ULP processor comes with a Cortex-A7 and Cortex-M4 core. This combination of different cores allows a feature rich OS, like Linux, to run on the Cortex-A core while a Real-Time OS such as FreeRTOS can run on the Cortex-M4 core.

The HMP architecture can reduce the power even more by letting the Cortex-A core sleep until needed. The Cortex-M4 can wake it up on demand.

Ultra compact form factor, 42×45 mm, using the proven Hirose DF40C connectors.

NXP Technology

The module is based on NXP’s energy efficient i.MX 7ULP processor which has a Cortex-A7 cores capable at running up to 720 MHz and a Cortex-M4 core capable at running up to 200 MHz.

Temperature Range

The iMX7ULP uCOM Board is available in industrial and commercial temperature ranges, -40 to +85 / 0 to 70 degrees Celsius, respectively. The industrial (temperature range) version is suitable for always-on applications.

Longevity

Fully supported on NXP’s 10-year longevity program.
