Module Description
The phyCORE-i.MX357 is an insert-ready System on Module (SOM) subassembly in miniature dimensions, populated with the Freescale i.MX357. The i.MX family of applications processors are high performance, mobile entertainment engines for the ultimate multimedia experience. Graphics Acceleration, state-of-the-art power management technology, security architecture, Floating Point Unit, and rich peripherals make this module the ideal candidate for computer-bound applications. The i.MX35x extends the functionality of its ARM11-based i.MX3x predecessors by integrating on-chip Ethernet, dual CAN, dual USB-PHYs, a camera and DDR2 memory interfaces. Additional features are its need for a single 3.3V supply and – if populated with the i.MX357 variant – an integrated OpenVG graphics processing unit.
