Variscite Introduces A New System-On-Module With A Real-Time Coprocessor At Only $39

Variscite extends its highly successful i.MX-based System-on-Module portfolio with the introduction of the VAR-SOM-MX7, based on the NXP i.MX 7 application processor family. This highly flexible SoM carries a dual 1GHz ARM CortexTM-A7 core, alongside real-time 200MHz CortexTM-M4 coprocessor. The SoM’s optimized multicore architecture allows Variscite’s customers to easily design embedded products that require real-time processing, as well as high-level applications on a standard Linux operating system.

The VAR-SOM-MX7 provides a variety of high-speed interfaces and connectivity options. This includes dual GbE and certified Wi-Fi/BT – all integrated within an optimized power, size and cost package. In addition, Variscite offers longevity of at least 10-years for the VAR-SOM-MX7, delivering an ideal solution for embedded applications requiring long-term availability for the end product.


The VAR-SOM-MX7 highly integrated connectivity includes a certified Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 / BLE, dual GbE with integrated PHY, dual USB, audio, display with touch panel, camera, PCIe, 32-bit parallel bus and multiple serial interfaces.

The VAR-MX7CustomBoard carrier board complements an attractive full reference kit of the VAR-SOM-MX7 SoM, which can be used for customers’ evaluation, development and end-product mass production.
