Variscite Launches New Variants for the DART-6UL SoM with Improved Certified Wi-Fi/BT Module with 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n Support

Filed under
News

In a matter of only two months, Variscite has announced the launch of an additional enhancement for the DART-6UL System on Module (SoM) product line based on the NXP Cortex-A7 i.MX6 UltraLite family.

The newly-introduced DART-6UL-5G variants are enhanced with certified Wi-Fi/BT module with 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n and dual band 2.4/5 GHz support. Those variants provide improved performance and effective bit-rate over its Wi-Fi, an ideal solution for products requiring high data transfer rates over the wireless network.

The DART-6UL-5G variants will run alongside two popular early variants: Initial i.MX 6UL variants, recently enhanced with 696MHz processor speed grade, and low-power i.MX 6ULL variants. All variants can be satisfied within a very attractive price range - starting from only 24 USD.

The DART-6UL-5G is pin-to-pin compatible with other DART-6UL variants. Sharing the exact same features-set and variety of interfaces, all products are compact (only 25 x 50 mm), have optimized cost and power, boast a full -40 to 85 temperature range and carry a 15-year longevity commitment. Leveraging this rich feature set, the platform is commonly used in fast emerging applications, such as the Internet-of-Things, industrial-grade embedded applications and portable/battery operated embedded systems.

Variscite's production-ready software suit for the DART-6UL, covering Linux Yocto, Linux Debian and Android, delivers an all-inclusive solution, significantly easing development efforts and shortening time-to-market.

DART-6UL-5G key features include:
• Small size: 25 x 50 x 4 mm
• NXP i.MX 6UltraLite and 6ULL 528 MHz / 696 MHz ARM Cortex-A7 with optional security features
• Up to 512 MB DDR3L and 512 MB NAND / 32 GB eMMC
• Certified Wi-Fi/Bluetooth 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n Dual Band 2.4/5 GHz
• Dual 10/100Mbps Ethernet
• 2D Pixel acceleration engine
• Display: 24-bit parallel RGB up to WXGA
• Touchscreen controller
• Dual USB 2.0 OTG (Host/Device)
• Audio In/Out
• Dual CAN, UART, I2C, SPI, PWM, ADC
• Parallel camera input
• Industrial temperature grade
• OS: Linux Yocto, Linux Debian, Android

Availability and pricing:

The DART-6UL SoM and associated development kits are available now for orders in production quantities, starting at only 24 USD per unit.

  • OpenStack regroups
    Only a few years ago, OpenStack was the hottest open-source project around, with a bustling startup ecosystem to boot. The project, which gives enterprises the tools to run the equivalent of AWS in their own private data centers, ran into trouble as it tried to tackle too many individual projects at the same time and enterprises took longer than expected to adopt it. That meant many a startup floundered or was acquired before it was able to gain traction while the nonprofit foundation that manages the project started to scale back its big tent approach and refocused on its core services.

  • Google Open-Sources "Amber" Multi-API Shader Test Framework
    The newest open-source graphics project out of Google is called Amber and it's a multi-API shader testing framework focused on capturing and communicating of shader bugs. Google's Amber tries to make it easier to capture/communicate shader bugs with a scripting-based workflow. The captured shaders can be in binary form, SPIR-V assembly, or a higher-level shading language. Amber is currently focused on supporting the Vulkan and Dawn graphics APIs.

Devices: Adding Linux to A PDP-11, Adding GNU/Linux Software to Chrome OS, and Adding Ubuntu to Android

  • Adding Linux To A PDP-11
    The UNIBUS architecture for DEC’s PDPs and Vaxxen was a stroke of genius. If you wanted more memory in your minicomputer, just add another card. Need a drive? Plug it into the backplane. Of course, with all those weird cards, these old UNIBUS PDPs are hard to keep running. The UniBone is the solution to this problem. It puts Linux on a UNIBUS bridge, allowing this card to serve as a memory emulator, a test console, a disk emulator, or any other hardware you can think of. The key to this build is the BeagleBone, everyone’s second-favorite single board computer that has one feature the other one doesn’t: PRUs, or a programmable real-time unit, that allows you to blink a lot of pins very, very fast. We’ve seen the BeagleBone be used as Linux in a terminal, as the rest of the computer for an old PDP-10 front panel and as the front end for a PDP-11/03.
  • Chrome OS Linux apps will soon be able to access your entire Downloads folder and Google Drive
    Google is working hard to turn Chrome OS into more than just a browser, but a real, functional operating system for consumers of all kinds. Most recently, they’ve invited developers to the platform with Linux app support that enables all of their tools, including Android Studio, to work as expected. Soon, your Chrome OS and Google Drive files will be even more accessible to your Linux apps. [...] According to a new commit on the Chromium Gerrit, that’s all about to change. The commit primarily pertains to a new dialog that will be shown when sharing ‘root’ folders like My Drive or Downloads with your Chrome OS Linux apps (internally known as Crostini) container. The dialog is intended to forewarn you that sharing a root folder is a bit more serious than just sharing a sub-folder, and to be sure you know what you’re doing.
  • Samsung Note 9 and Tab S4 owners can run a full Ubuntu Desktop – Linux on Dex
    We have come a long way as an industry and if this is not one of the biggest milestones in personal computing, I don’t know what else qualifies. Over the past decade of smartphones being around, we have seen an exponential increase in the power that our smartphones pack. I mean, flagships from the past few years spot more RAM and processing power than most laptops out there, but the small form factor has always been a hindrance to the utilization of this power. I mean you can only do so much on a 5.5-inch display. Samsung has launched its “Linux on Dex” app in beta and is inviting geeks and tinkerers to register and help test and develop it. The app lets owners of specific Samsung devices “run” a full Ubuntu desktop on their device alongside Android.
