Mouser Electronics has recently announced a global distribution agreement with Toradex. Through the agreement, Mouser now offers Toradex’s Colibri and Apalis families of computer-on-modules (CoMs) based on NXP i.MX series applications processors.
All Colibri and Apalis modules are pin compatible within a family to provide simple scalability, and come with the Toradex Easy Installer pre-installed to help engineers quickly install operating systems or demo images.
Engineers can also take advantage of Toradex’s support, including a high-quality Yocto Project-based Linux board support package and the new, easy-to-use industrial Linux platform, Torizon.
Colibri iMX8X CoMs are based on the NXP i.MX 8X applications processors, offering up to four 64-bit Armv8 Cortex-A35 cores.
Available with a dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth option, Colibri iMX8X CoMs are designed for markets with high-reliability requirements, such as industrial automation, medical, and railway applications. Colibri iMX7 CoMs are based on NXP i.MX 7Dual applications processors, with two Arm Cortex-A7 cores and a Cortex-M4 microcontroller.
Advanced security features, in addition to the heterogeneous multicore processing, make the Colibri iMX7 ideal for applications such as power-sensitive edge computing devices, Internet of Things (IoT) gateways, medical devices, and industrial automation.
Apalis iMX6 CoMs are based on the NXP i.MX 6 processors, which feature a scalable Arm Cortex-A9 processor with up to four cores. With a peak CPU frequency of 1.2 GHz, the Apalis iMX6 CoMs deliver high CPU and graphical performance with minimum power consumption in applications such as medical devices, industrial automation, HMIs, avionics, data acquisition, robotics, and gaming.
In addition to extensive online documentation, Toradex provides an active community and has field application engineers available around the globe. An extensive ecosystem of software and hardware providers and engineering companies simplify product development.
