i.MX 7ULP ARM Cortex-A7 Processor powers the PicoCORE MX7ULP COM

NXP ARM Cortex Apps Processor is behind the COM board from F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH


The first member of the new and compact PicoCORE COM product family by F&S Elektronik Systeme is offered with the NXP i.MX 7ULP ARM based Applications Processor (AP).

The module is based on an i.MX 7ULP Applications Processor implementing the Heterogeneous Multi-core Processing architecture with ARM Cortex-A7 core and ARM Cortex-M4 core.

NXP enables its heterogeneous concept with Linux running on the ARM Cortex-A7 core and FreeRTOS running on the ARM Cortex-M4 core.

The AP offers OpenGL ES 2.0, OpenVG 1.1 3D and 2D Graphics Accelerator for media applications.

There are up to 1GB LPDDR3 RAM and up to 32GB eMMC, as well as USB OTG, 2x I2C, SPI, 2x UART and SDIO available.

The board comes with a MIPI-DSI interface for easy connection to displays. A resistive/ PCAP touch panel can be connected via I2C.

This enables a compact shape and short board-to-board distance. The power supply of PicoCORE is 5 V, the power consumption is about 1 W.

The available operating system is Linux (kernel 4.1.15, Yocto); it has already been ported by the experienced software team of F&S Elektronik Systeme.

Bootloader, customized interface drivers and all tools needed for development are ready to download.

The F&S project guarantee accompanies the customer from the start until the successful finish of the project. Starter kits, workshops, hardware and software documentations, as well as free support by the experienced engineers pave the way to customers’ success.

PicoCOREMX7ULP can be purchased directly at F&S Elektronik Systeme or via one of their worldwide distribution partners.
