Eurotech, a leading supplier of embedded technologies, products and systems, today announces the launch of the CPU-351-13, an ARM-based embedded platform that extends the Eurotech family of products that enable machine-to-machine applications and Internet of Things (IoT) services. The CPU-351-13 is based on the Freescale® i.MX 6 series applications processor to deliver superior functionality in a small form factor that allows for efficient packaging and design.
With Eurotech’s power management expertise and the Freescale i.MX 6 series multicore processor at speeds up to 1.2 GHz, the CPU-351-13 delivers performance with extreme power efficiency and simplified heat management. The flexible platform can be used for a wide range of applications such as retail kiosk displays, medical equipment, and control panels for fitness equipment.
Eurotech (eurotech.com), a Freescale Connect Proven Partner, adds the CPU-351-13 to the existing portfolio of Freescale-based embedded computers and multi-service gateways. As a Connect Proven Partner, Eurotech works closely with Freescale to offer new ARM-based products that meet market requirements balancing processing power and energy efficiency.
“CPU-351-13 is an IoT building block that combines Freescale i.MX 6 series processor technology with Eurotech’s design expertise to give customers an application-ready embedded platform that makes it easy to exploit the full capability of the module,” said Alex Dopplinger, Industrial Business Development Manager, Freescale. “Eurotech has shown their commitment to enabling M2M / IoT applications and recently moved up as a Freescale Connect Proven Partner to work with us more closely in this space. We look forward to partnering with Eurotech to bring IoT-enabling embedded computing platforms and multi-service gateways to businesses of all sizes.”
With the Everyware Software Framework (ESF) or the Everyware Cloud Client loaded on the CPU-351-13, any device using this platform is Everyware Cloud-enabled and ready to be part of the Internet of Things. ESF also allows devices based on the CPU-351-13 to be remotely managed for reduced operational costs.
“The latest Single Board Computer from Eurotech, the CPU-351-13, exploits the features of the Freescale i.MX 6 series processor and is ESF and Everyware Cloud-ready, allowing customers to conceive and build devices that aggregate and analyze data to feed into cloud-based storage and analysis systems and create business intelligence quickly and easily,” said Larry Wall, CEO of Eurotech, Inc. “Our solutions are designed to speed time to market and empower businesses in many industries to set up valuable M2M and IoT applications and connect to the Internet of Things.”
