Product Description

The RM3 is one of Blue Chip Technology’s highly successful System on Modules (SOM) in a tiny package, just 50 by 50mm. The RM3 processor is the latest NXP iMX6 Cortex A9 with a dual core processor. The graphics engines class leading and able to drive two independent displays.

A SOM is an off-the-shelf building block with all of the functionality of a high performance single board computer – CPU, chipset, RAM, Flash, Ethernet, CAN, etc but without the usual constraints. Instead you choose the board size/profile, the inputs /outputs and the connectors that suits your product best and then fit one of our SOMs to provide the level of performance required. Basing your new product on our SOM means the most expensive, complex and highest risk elements of the design are already proven whilst your host board design is a simple task which can be completed quickly and effectively. We can either support you when you design your own hostboard or if you wish design it for you.
