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."

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
