Benchmarking NXP i.MX 6UltraLite and Marvell PXA166, PXA168 ARM CPUs

Technology has become more than just a battle of sheer numbers. It has somewhat morphed into a “less is more” philosophy to see what’s possible with less. We pitted these three ARM CPUs together to find out if there are any positive impacts to using a slower clock speed CPU:

What we found is very promising in that in most tests, the 696 MHz i.MX 6UltraLite provided a huge advantage over the 800 MHz PXA166 and even the 1066 MHz PXA168. Let’s take a quick look at our findings.

Practical Guide to Getting Started with the TS-4100

 

This practical guide gives us an opportunity to take a relaxed approach to getting started with the TS-4100 computer. We’re going to take a look at how to make our first connections, and setup the network. These are usually the first things we do before starting development. In the grand scheme of things, this is just a friendlier extrapolation from the official TS-4100 manual, so be sure to keep it handy for more advanced topics and specific details. The only assumption being made is that you’ve purchased the TS-4100 with a development kit, including the pre-programmed microSD card and TS-8551 reference board. Right then, let’s get started!

Now Sampling the TS-4100

TS-4100 Computer on Module powered by NXP i.MX6 UL Processor.

Feb 15, 2018 – Technologic Systems announced their latest Computer-on-Module, the TS-4100, has entered in to their engineering sampling program (see below for details). The TS-4100 is the first Technologic Systems Computer-on-Module to feature the NXP i.MX 6 UltraLite processor, featuring a single ARM Cortex A7 core, operating at speeds up to 695MHz. The NXP i.MX 6UL processors offer scalable performance and multimedia support, along with low power consumption. Technologic Systems allows you to take full advantage of the integrated power management module to optimize power sequencing throughout the board design to achieve 300 mW typical power usage, making this CoM perfect for embedded applications with strict power requirements. The TS-4100 is perfect for industrial embedded applications for medical, automotive, industrial automation, smart energy and many more applications.
