TX6DL: Minimum size - high performance
One of the smallest dual-core CoM in the world, the Ka-Ro TX6 is based on NXP’s i.MX6 processor. Mounted on the base board, the module only takes up just under 26 cm² (36 mm x 71 mm including the socket) and facilitates a maximum construction height of just 4.5 mm. As the latest member of the Ka-Ro CoM family, the TX6DL boasts powerful dual-core CPU performance for challenging graphical and multimedia applications.
Also available as 1000 MHz industrial Quad-Core TX6Q and 800 MHz Solo-Core TX6S.
TX6DL: Target markets
Embedded computing power is very much in demand in a growing number of multimedia-centric devices. The TX6 is ideally suited for target markets requiring high-end devices for powerful images and impressive video streaming creating connected devices in the following vertical markets.
- Medical technology
- Industrial control
- Digital signage
By combining the power-efficient processing capabilities of the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture with bleedingedge 3D and 2D graphics, as well as high-definition video, the i.MX 6 provides a new level of multimedia performance to enable an unbounded next-generation user experience.

Often, devices are required in different performance and price classes. This is where ’s TX standard comes into its own. With one single hardware design embedded engineers can produce a range of pin- and software-compatible products. introduced the TX CoM standard over six years ago. Until today, the Starter Kit 5 has served as the unchanged development environment for all TX modules underlining ’s long-term product and family strategy. All the TX modules can be used on the Starter Kit V which enables great scalability and flexibility.
Reduce to the max – the product philosophy
The philosophy behind the TX CoM family is to reduce a CoM down to the absolute minimum of components. In doing so, application designers and engineers using CoMs can achieve maximum flexibility. TX CoM modules solely feature the processor plus memory and the power supply. Any additional functions can be added to the base board.
Longevity for OEM's is Key
This focus on CoMs with a minimum number of components is on the one hand the key to very competitive pricing, on the other hand it enables to ensure long-term availability. While processor manufacturers like Freescale offer a long-term availability of 10 to 15 years, this must also apply to any further components integrated onto a module or these must be available via second sourcing and without any necessary software alterations. If these components are integrated on a module, as is the case with many other manufacturers, this long-term availability is endangered, or – from right from the start – not possible to guarantee.
