Toradex shows Freescale i.MX7, Windows 10 IoT Core on ARM

Posted by Charbax – December 10, 2015

Toradex shows their upcoming Freescale i.MX7 based System on Module (SOM). The module is pin compatible with the existing Toradex Colibri Modules based on i.MX6, Vybrid, PXA and Nvidia Tegra. The i.MX7 is a heterogeneous asymmetric multicore system including a Dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 and a ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller for real-time. The Toradex computer module will be available at the official i.MX7 launch early next year. Also first time in public, Toradex shows Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Core on an ARM based SOM which is designed to be used directly in volume. The module is based on a Nvidia Tegra 3 which is pin compatible with the I.MX7 and provides a fully HW accelerated DirectX driver.
