The CC10S is a small-footprint multi-display controller board based on the Freescale™ ARM® i.MX 6 Series and provides full HD resolution for 7" to 15" panels, e.g., for driver desk displays or in-seat infotainment in trains or public buses, in medical devices, or HMIs in automotive applications.
Scalable Performance with ARM® i.MX 6 Series
With its Cortex®-A9 architecture, the CC10S supports different types of the i.MX 6Solo, 6DualLite, 6Dual and 6Quad families. This makes the controller module widely scalable from low-end to high-end graphics requirements. Where less performance is needed, you can optimize costs by choosing a single- or dual-core processor instead of a quad core. In any case, the board provides dual-channel LVDS with a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (WUXGA).
Powerful Graphics with a Small Footprint
The CC10S supports up to 4 GB onboard DDR3 SDRAM, which is abundant even for demanding imaging tasks. A soldered eMMC device provides sufficient mass storage for Linux or VxWorks® operating system images and application software, and in many cases also for image data.
This makes the CC10S controller a solid base for very compact solutions. Still it can handle two independent screen contents due to its multi-stream-capable HD video engine, which delivers up to 1080p60 decode, 1080p30 encode and 3D video playback in HD. Separate 2D and/or OpenVG Vertex acceleration engines make for optimal user interface experience.
Solid I/O Functions
With one Gigabit Ethernet interface (1000BASE-T), two USB 2.0 ports and two UARTs for flexible RS232, RS422 or RS485 configuration and supporting up to 4 Mbit/s, the CC10S comes with a range of interfaces that covers the needs of a typical panel computer. All interfaces are accessible using onboard connectors that can be led to a housing's exterior as needed using ribbon cable.
A UART-to-USB port allows to connect a PC as a terminal, e.g., for integration or software maintenance. As an option, one or both UART connectors can be implemented as CAN bus interfaces, which is an attractive feature especially for automotive applications.
Rugged for Harsh Environments
Although the display controller is suited for all kinds of application areas, it is particularly suited for harsh environments. All components are available qualified for an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, are soldered to withstand shock and vibration, and are prepared for conformal coating.
