Rugged module runs Linux on i.MX6 UltraLite SoC
F&S announced a COM that runs Linux on Freescale’s Cortex-A7 based i.MX6 UltraLite SoC, and offers dual Ethernet, WiFi, and an industrial temperature range.

Now, F&S Elektronik Systeme has announced that it is adding an i.MX6 UltraLite-based “efus-A7UL” module to its “efus” COM family.
How Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet Can Prove Useful for Enterprise WiFi
