Based on the highest performing member of the NXP® i.MX 6 Series Application Processors, the NOVPED™i.MX6QP is a single board computer (SBC) with 4GB DDR, large capacity on-board solid-state storage and a wide range of peripherals. The SBC, which features a high-performance ADI Power by Linear™ power solution, can be powered from a single cell Li-Ion battery (+3.7V) to +42V DC, covering typical industrial/automotive power rails of 5V, 12V, 24V, 28V, 32V and 36V. Synchronizing all the on-board switching power supplies and setting the SoC to operate at ‘external bypass mode’ contributes to the design’s overall power efficiency and leads to better EMI performance. Schematics and Gerber files are available to ease the integration of this high-efficiency design into myriad end products.
