Board Interfaces

The phyBOARD-i.MX 6 SBC features a single 10/100/1000Mbit RJ45 connector, USB Host (Standard-A), USB-OTG (Micro-AB), 2×5 header for CAN, 2×5 header for RS232, uSD card slot, and a miniPCIe card socket. HDMI, Camera, LVDS, and additional pins are accessible through PHYTEC expansion connectors.

Multimedia Performance

Loaded with Vivante GC2000 3D and Vivante GC355/GC320 2D graphics accelerators the phyCORE-i.MX 6 SOM family is ideal for advanced graphics. In addition the phyCORE-i.MX 6 supports 1080p60 Decode, 1080p30 Encode, and camera interfaces.

Flexible Memory Options

phyCORE-i.MX 6 utilizes a dual-flash-footprint that allows for populating SLC NAND or eMMC. Does your product require the increased write cycles of SLC NAND? You can have NAND. Does your product require more storage space OR do you want protection from EOL NAND issues? Populate an eMMC option.


With dimensions of 100 mm x 70 mm the phyBOARD-i.MX 6 is well suited for small enclosures.
