e-con Systems Inc., a leading embedded design services company specializing in Computer on modules, announces the launch of its eSOMiMX6 Computer on module. The eSOMiMX6 Computer-on-Module is based on Freescale’s IMX6 processor. e-con Systems already has dozens of customers in mass production using computer on modules, such as the eSOM3730, eSOM270 and eSOM300.

eSOMiMX6 is a ready to use System-On-Module using Quad, Dual or Solo ARM Cortex™ A9 Processor running up to a speed of 1.2GHz. e-con’s i.MX6 system on module encompasses eMMC Flash whose capacity ranges from 4GB to 64GB and 64 bit LVDDR3 with capacity as low as 256MB to as high as 2GB. eSOMiMX6 is custom micro Qseven® form factor compatible module providing all possible connecting options for Industrial products. e-con’s i.MX6 system on module is available with preloaded Windows embedded compact 2013 BSP, Linux or Android BSP.

"We are proud to launch the eSOMiMX6, the next product of our eSOM family of Computer-on-Modules based on the popular i.MX6 CPU from Freescale within one year from the launch of our eSOM3730. With built-in WiFi/BT and Gigabit Ethernet transceivers, our eSOMiMX6 is a highly integrated SOM and is supported with Windows Embedded, Linux and Android and is available as production-ready. By building the end products based on our SOM, customers can concentrate on their business logic and application development, leaving the tedious and often time-consuming task of maintain platform software on e-con’s shoulder", said Ashok Babu, President of e-con Systems.

"Customers can also engage with e-con’s in-house team of expert engineers in hardware design, Windows Embedded Compact, Linux and Android to develop the products in a cost-effective way and launch their products in to the market faster than ever before" he added.

The eSOMiMX6 has an operating temperature range of -40ºC to +85ºC making it suitable for products to be used in fluctuating temperature ranging from freezing to higher temperatures. The features of this Computer on module includes Full HD@30fps (1080p) Video encoding & decoding along with 3D graphic acceleration that enables the product to be used in high end graphics application. With inbuilt Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (BLE), eSOMiMX6 enables the product usage for IoT, cloud computing etc. The eSOMiMX6 enables simultaneous streaming of 3 cameras enabling the product usage for 360⁰ viewing applications.

eSOMiMX6 integrates Processor with best in class ARM with its necessary memory and connectivity option in a small form factor. As part of the "Productized Services" program of e-con Systems, the eSOMiMX6 is aimed at reducing the time-to-market for our customers by making use of the stabilized and ready-to-market eSOMiMx6modules in the customer applications such as but not limited to Portable Data Terminals, Navigation, Auto infotainment, Industrial Control, Wireless Streaming, etc. eSOMiMX6 modules with various configurations and OS support will enable our customers to focus on their application design rather than spending large unnecessary engineering man-hours involved in CPU/memory subsystem design.

e-con Systems has also launched the See3CAM_CU51, part of the See3CAM family of USB3.0 SuperSpeed cameras. The See3CAM_CU51 is based on MT9P031 Monochrome CMOS Image sensor from Aptina and is provided with the S-mount (M12) lens mount that enables customers to choose a lens of their choice. The See3CAM_CU51 supports video streaming at resolutions of up to 1080p@30fps and full resolution (2592x1944) @14fps with 12bits per pixel resolution. In addition, the See3CAM_CU51 also has a fast video capture capability of VGA @ 120fps. The UVC compliant camera is plug-and-play in both Windows and Linux. In Windows, the camera is exposed as a DirectShow device and in Linux, as a V4L2 capture source.

The See3CAM_CU51 is ideal for customer applications where monochrome images are required along with the flexibility for choosing a lens of their choice is required. See3CAM_CU51 can be used in Scanning applications, Medical Equipment, Measurement devices, Quality Inspection, Industrial Automation and Pattern recognition.

"The See3CAM_CU51 is a 5 MP USB3.0 UVC camera with advanced features targeted for demanding applications from our customers. With its 12bits per pixel resolution, high speed preview of 120fps in VGA, Zero Shutter Lag during still capture and other features, e-con’s See3CAM_CU51 shall help our customers to meet their challenging demands" said Mr. Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems Inc. "e-con also offers the customization of See3CAM_CU51 to meet customer requirements for special requirements and also sells the camera sensor module alone for use with various application processors", he added.
