Digi International developed the ConnectCore 6, a surface mount module that provides access to all of the features of the Freescale i.MX 6 Quad, i.MX 6 Dual and i.MX 6 Solo processors for M2M applications as the small form factor and design, which requires no connectors, reduces manufacturing costs and makes it easier to add wireless capabilities to portable devices.

The product was created to reduce design risk, complexity and time to market for those developing products for transportation, security and other industrial applications.

The ConnectCore 6 modules built-in ability to connect via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Bluetooth Low Energy and Device Cloud by Etherios can save product designers hundreds of hours of time and expense in designing wireless devices including the pain of passing and maintaining global certifications.

Complete software development tools are provided to build application software to help get products to market faster. The module has a five-year warranty and is designed for long-term availability, ensuring that it will be available for the lifecycle of developed products.

Digi has a longstanding track record in delivering embedded core modules based on Freescale i.MX processors. Other offerings include ConnectCore modules based on the i.MX53 and i.MX51 processor families, and the ConnectCard module-based on the i.MX28 processor.

The ConnectCore family is ideal for a variety of applications. For example, the ConnectCore based on the i.MX53 processor is used to control and stream video wirelessly from the Robonaut, a humanoid robot created by NASA to assist astronauts on the International Space Station.
