Editors Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

The VAR-SOM-MX6 goes one step further and not only ensures scalable and simplified development, but also extends the product life-cycle. Thanks to four CPU core assembly options, customers can apply a single System on Module in a broad range of applications to achieve short time-to-market for their current innovations, while still accommodating potential R&D directions and marketing opportunities.

Key features include:


--  Freescale i.MX6 1.2GHz quad/dual/single core Cortex-A9 
--  2GB DDR3, 1GB SLC NAND Flash 
--  Full HD 1080p video encoding/decoding capability 
--  Vivante GPU providing 2D/3D acceleration 
--  Simultaneous multiple display support 
--  Gigabit Ethernet 
--  TI WiLink(TM) 6.0 single-chip connectivity solution (Wi-Fi,
    Bluetooth®) 
--  PCI-Express 2.0, S-ATA 3.0 
--  Camera interface 
--  USB 2.0: Host, OTG 
--  Audio In/Out 
--  Dual CAN Bus

This versatile solution's -40 to 85 degrees C temperature range and Dual CAN support is ideal for industrial applications, while 1080p video and graphics accelerations make it equally suitable for intensive multimedia applications.

The impressive scalability of the VAR-SOM-MX6 satisfies the needs of the most demanding future application requirements whether faster processing power, enhanced algorithms or improved graphics and video performance to name just a few.

The VAR-SOM-MX6 is an all-round solution with broad connectivity and sophisticated video and acceleration graphic capabilities, delivering a range of middle to high end assembly options all from the same product.

Oded Yaron from Variscite explained the need for a scalable System on Module that can carry a product through several incarnations. "The VAR-SOM-MX6 has removed the need for lengthy and costly redesign to support different market options. At Variscite we understand that a product concept is dynamic and evolves according to market drivers, consumer need and overall corporate strategy. As such we've developed the VAR-SOM-MX6 high performance System on Module, allowing customers to create optimized products for target markets: Add functionality for a more sophisticated offering, or scale down for a simpler lower cost alternative."

DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software sec...
Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kausik Sridharabalan, founder and CTO of Pulzze Systems, Inc., will focus on key challenges in building an Internet of Things solution infrastructure. He will shed light on efficient ways of defining interactions within IoT solutions, leading to cost and time reduction. He will also introduce ways to handle data and how one can develop IoT solutions that are lean, flexible and configurable, thus making IoT infrastructure agile and scalable.
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services. While it is easy to showcase successful IoT solutions, identifying IoT systems that missed the mark or failed can often provide more in the way of key lessons learned.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory.
