TechNexion is a Taiwanese company under European Management with own manufacturing facilities in Taipei, Taiwan. Florian Wohlrab, Marketing manager at TechNexion shows us around their booth at COMPUTEX 2016. The first thing to see is their tiny Modules which pack an ARM based NXP i.MX6/7 CPU (UltraLite/Solo/DualLite/Dual/Quad) with RAM, Memory and WiFi on just 36mm x 40mm. They are also the only one running a NXP i.MX7 live demo at their booth. The NXP i.MX7D is with 2x Cortex-A7 and a Cortex-M4 this a tiny, ultralow power, that can be used for vending machines, industrial applications or generic headless systems. TechNexion is also committed to the open source EDM standard for ARM Modules. Their boards are fit for Digital Signage, rugged industrial Applications and many more. Technexion can scale up to the NXP i.MX6 QUAD Plus, which will be available shortly. They also have some cool ARM bassed systems like their BoxPC the TEK Series. This Box PC’s have MiniPCIe slots with SIM-Card holder inside and also M.2 Slots for memory upgrade. Technexion also supports USB Type-C and for automation a VGA connector as well a HDMI to fit it for Digital Signage as well. Inside is a modular system which allows you to switch e.g. Power input between 12V/24V/10~30V/PoE (Power over Ethernet). TechNexion HMI series ranges from 7” to 10” and 15” again with NXP processors. All the Software is freely available on their website with no need to register.
