Overview

VIA SOM-6X50 Module

The VIA SOM-6X50 is an ARM-based system-on-module powered by a 1.0GHz VIA Cortex-A9 SoC which delivers the perfect balance of performance and rich multimedia features in an ultra-compact, highly-flexible package for a wide range of IoT automation and HMI applications such as transportation, retail and medical.


Hardware

The ultra-compact VIA SOM-6X50 module measures a mere 6.76cm x 4.3cm, featuring 8GB eMMC Flash memory and 512MB DDR3 SDRAM onboard. The module offers rich I/O and display expansion options including three USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI port, one single-channel 18/24-bit LVDS panel, 6 UART, one CSI camera input, 10/100Mbps Ethernet, 11 GPIO, and one SD Card slot.

Software

The VIA SOM-6X50 features a Linux BSP which includes the kernel (3.4.5) and bootloader source codes. Other features include a Tool Chain to help make adjustments to the kernel and to support the VIA SOMDB1 carrier board I/O and other hardware features.

A full set of software customization services that speed up time to market and minimize development costs are also available.

VIA SOM-6X50 is Microsoft Azure Certified
