NXP’s new energy-efficient processor features a single ARM Cortex-A7 core delivering speeds of up to 528 MHz with low-power operation and industrial temperature ranges. The new TX6UL integrates 256MB DDR3 RAM and 128MB SLC NAND, alternatively it can be equipped with 4GB eMMC. On the latest low-cost module the connectivity options have been extended to include a camera interface and 8 UARTs.
Addressing security, plagiarism and manipulation issues on embedded devices, Ka-Ro now offers two secure boot services for all TXCOMs based on NXP’s i.MX 6 and i.MX53 processors. Customers can order either dedicated secure boot-enabled TXCOMs directly from Ka-Ro which come programmed with their secure key. Alternatively Ka-Ro’s support team assists developers individually and enables them to implement this secure foundation to create trusted devices which will only boot and connect with digitally signed authentic code.
