NXP Semiconductors MCIMX6SX-SDB SABRE Development Board

NXP Semiconductors MCIMX6SX-SDB SABRE (Smart Application Blueprint for Rapid Engineering) Board introduces developers to multi-core processing, low-power consumption, and leading-edge multimedia and graphics applications based on the i.MX 6SoloX Applications Processor. The MCIMX6SX-SDB SABRE Board provides a low-cost development platform that includes all primary features of the i.MX 6SoloX serves as an example of how to layout complex, high-speed interfaces such as DDR. NXP Semiconductors SABRE includes a pre-installed SD card with the Linux operating system and complete hardware design files. A number of accessory boards for the SABRE-SDB are also available to provide additional capabilities such as multi-touch display and Wi-Fi® connectivity.

Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Solution

NXP Semiconductors MCIMX6SX-SDB SABRE Development Board

Murata has partnered with Embedded Artists to integrate Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth® into existing NXP i.MX Development Platforms. The i.MX Platforms, based on the Arm® Cortex® cores, are designed to bridge the gap between the performance of Applications Processors and the flexible usability of Microcontrollers (MCUs) without increasing costs or power consumption.

The Murata uSD-M.2 Adapter connects to the uSD slot on the NXP i.MX Platforms, which provides power and WLAN-SDIO. The Murata Adapter provides an M.2 connector, allowing application developers to connect the Embedded Artists Types 1DX, 1MW, 1LV, and 1CX M.2 EVBs, which provide IEEE 802.11/b/g/n and BT/BLE connectivity.
