MSC SM2-SK-IMX6-EP1

SMARC 2.0 Starterkit for i.MX6-based Modules

The SMARC 2.0 Starterkit for SMARC modules with the NXP i.MX6 processors is based on a Mini-ITX SMARC 2.0 carrier board MSC SM2-MB-EP1 and contains all necessary products to quickly enable the user to run and evaluate the SM2S-IMX6 module range. The kit does not contain a SMARC module in order to give the user greater flexibility as to which particular module version and CPU speed variant is desired. As part of the SMARC 2.0 Starterkit, the appropriate Heatspreader and a Flash SD Card will be supplied. A bootable Linux installation can be downloaded from the MSC Support website and stored on the SD Card. A power supply with cable kit is also included for convenience. Direct screen output on a PC monitor is possible using the on-board DP and HDMI output. As an option to the Starter Kit several suitable LCD kits of various resolutions and sizes are available upon request.
