The Nano SOM from Mistral is a small form factor i.MX6 System on Module providing very high processing power. The Nano SOM is built around the powerful 800MHz i.MX6 Dual/Quad Core, ARM Cortex A9 SoC from NXP (earlier Freescale) with a maximum clock frequency of 1.2GHz. Based on a complete “System on Module” architecture, the i.MX6 Nano SOM consists of the SoC, PMIC, LPDDR2 memory and wireless connectivity. All the other interfaces on the i.MX6 System on Module are terminated to expansion connectors.
The i.MX6 System on Module is designed using a micro-BGA (0.4mm Pitch 12mm x 12mm) i.MX6Q SoC using PoP (Package on Package) memory assembly to ensure compact package. With a PCB size of just 44mm X 26mm, this is one of the smallest SOMs available in the market currently. Given its small form factor, the Nano SOM is an ideal for designing products like biometric devices, drones, wearable computers, medical electronic devices, security/personal cameras and other smart gadgets requiring small package and high processing power.
