Versatile Digital Signage and HMI SolutionTS-TPC-7990 Front View

Powered by the NXP i.MX6 Cortex-A9 ARM CPU, the TS-TPC-7990 Touch Panel Computer (TPC) stands out from the crowd with its 7" capacitive or resistive display, high performance components, connectivity options, and multimedia capabilities. It's a solid balance of embedded ruggedness and interfaces and standard connectors to easily, quickly, and reliably deploy your solution to the field. The TS-TPC-7990 is an ideal solution for applications that require a touch-based Human Machine Interface (HMI), such as: industrial automation, medical, automotive, self-service kiosks, and retail point-of-sale terminals.

Robust and Rugged Engineering TS-TPC-7990 CPU Close up

Each component on the TS-TPC-7990 has been carefully chosen to ensure reliable operation in the field. Solid connectors securely snap in and hold on. Data is reliably stored in the onboard eMMC flash, configurable as pSLC for further reliability or MLC for more capacity. The TS-SILO power reserve solution is also optional for graceful shutdown to avoid filesystem corruption. The HALT verified, fanless design of the TS-TPC-7990 is able to withstand high vibration, high debris, and a wide temperature range of -20 °C - 70 °C (-20 °C to 60 °C for quad core).

Short Time to Market with Long Term Deployment Abstract Code

A productive out-of-the-box experience includes pre-installed Linux OS, development tools, and utilities for controlling DIO, UARTS, CAN bus, and more. The development kit makes sure you have all the necessarily connections and cables to get off the ground quickly. The guaranteed 10+ year lifecycle ensures a long-term deployment in the field, free from expensive replacements that come from short, disposable lifecycles which are all too common.


The TS-TPC-7990 touch panel computer features high performance hardware in a 7" open frame with bezel, featuring:

  • NXP i.MX6 800 MHz Solo or 1 GHz Quad Core ARM CPU
  • 7" capacitive (1024 x 600 px) or resistive (800 x 480 px) display
  • 1 GB DDR3 RAM
  • 4 GB MLC eMMC Flash, configurable as 2 GB pSLC for added reliability
  • Wireless 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0+EDR onboard module
  • Socket to support either NimbeLink Cellular Modems or DIGI XBEE Family of devices
  • 1x Gigabit Ethernet and 1x Ethernet Ports
  • Audio Codec with Headphone and Microphone Headers
  • Flexible 5 VDC or 8 to 28 VDC power input
Industry standard connectors, such as USB host and device ports, Gigabit Ethernet, Ethernet, and RS-232 serial port are included. Additional storage or boot image is possible through the microSD socket. A temperature compensated (TCXO), battery-backed real time clock (BBRTC) keeps accurate time for the system and a watchdog timer is there to help when a system becomes unresponsive in the field. The TS-TPC-7990 features popular I/O and interfaces, including:
  • 1x mini-PCIe Socket (shared with mSATA, includes USB, custom option for SIM Socket available)
  • 1x SATA II (Quad core only)
  • 2x USB Host Ports
  • 1x USB Device Port
  • 4x RS-232
  • 3x RS-485
  • 2x CAN Bus
  • 9x GPIO
  • 1x I2C
  • 1x SPI

Applications with strict low power requirements will appreciate the work that's been done to reduce power consumption to less than 8 watts in typical conditions and down to 6 mW in sleep mode. Wake from sleep mode by setting a timer or wake on touch.


We've preloaded most everything you need to get your application up and running quickly, from utilities to read, write, and control the various interfaces to power management tools. Development can be done on the device itself using preloaded GNU development tools such as GCC and GDB. Linux GUI development can be done using QT, GTK, and more. Furthermore, development can be done using familiar and easily installed interpreted languages such as Python, Java, C# (Mono), etc. In keeping with an open source vision, we have the source code, toolchains, and binaries freely available for download from the TS-TPC-7990 FTP repository and Github page. Get a jumpstart on your project using the practical getting started guide and Qt Creator guides.

The TS-TPC-7990 offers an operating system choice of Yocto, Debian, or Ubuntu thanks in part to the well equipped U-Boot bootloader which can boot from eMMC flash or microSD card.

debian logo By default, Debian Jessie is loaded which provides a massive repository of prebuilt applications and services and Debian provides a long history of focus on stability and support. Yocto is also available to take full advantage of the i.MX6 GPU providing simple integration with QT Creator and IDEs for rapid development.

yocto logo The Yocto environment is a powerful, stable, and familiar software stack, including common Linux tools and interpreters. With Yocto, we provide an x86/x86_64 cross toolchain which supports common onboard libraries and integrates with QT Creator, and other IDEs.

android logo The world's most popular mobile OS, from phones and watches to cars and TVs. The Android™ source code is free for anyone to download, customize, and distribute. Android™ provides power development tools and a large community of developers. Android™ Nougat 7.1.1 is available for the TS-TPC-7990.

Software specifics:

  • U-Boot Bootloader
  • Linux Kernel 4.1
  • Android™ Nougat 7.1.1 (Coming Soon)
  • Yocto, Debian Jessie, and Ubuntu 16.04 distribution and Ubuntu Core support
  • Flexible programming language support
  • Source code examples available
  • Linux GUI development using QT, GTK, and more
