NXP i.MX6 Single - Dual - Quad Core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU Module

AXEL ULTRA is the new top-class Single - Dual - Quad Core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU module from DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent NXP i.MX6 application processor.

Customers can save time and resources by using a compact solution that supports scalable performances and perfectly fits the application requirements by avoiding complexities on the carrier board.

AXEL Ultra enables designers to create smart products suitable for harsh mechanical and thermal environments, allowing the development of high performance and extremely reliable solutions. Designers are able to share the application across the multicore platform, or divide the task on different cores in order to match with specific application requirements. Asymmetrix Multicore Processing (AMP) makes it possible to create applications where RTOS and Linux work together on different cores.


  • Unmatched performances thanks to Single/Dual/Quad Core @ up to 1.2 GHz
  • All memories you need on-board
  • Boot from NOR for safe applications
  • Enabling massive computing applications thanks to wide range DDR3 RAM memory up to 4GB
  • Wide range PSU input from 2.8V to 4.5V
  • High mechanical retention up to 100G shock thanks to 3x140pins and 4 screw holes
  • Reduced carrier complexity: dual CAN, USB, Ethernet GB, PCIe, SATA and native 3.3V I/O
  • Suitable for Asymmetric Multicore Processing
  • Timing application thanks to on-board 5ppm RTC
