Technologic Systems Expands Low Power Products with i.MX286 Arm-based CPU

Published as a News Article on Aug 6, 2014 (Updated Feb 11, 2022)

Technologic Systems announces expansion on a family of products based on the NXP/Freescale i.MX286 with an Arm926EJ-S™ core running Linux at 454 MHz. This release includes two new single board computer products, enabling a wide range of embedded systems applications and providing flexibility for customers to design a low power, low cost, and long life embedded solution. Release products include:

The software solution relies upon Linux and is compatible across the TS-7670 and TS-7400-V2 products, enabling easy portability to customer s applications. The family software package includes:

  • Fast boot to Linux Kernel 2.6.35
  • Debian Wheezy 7 distribution
  • Flexible programming language support
  • Source code examples available


TS-7670 Low Power Industrial Computer with GPS Radio and Cellular Data Modem

The TS-7670 is a small SBC that is designed to provide extreme performance for applications which demand high reliability, fast startup, and location aware connectivity at low cost and low power, such as fleet vehicle or asset tracking, data acquisition units, data recorder modules, etc.

The TS-7670 runs at approximately 0.60 W when idle and 1.30 W when loaded and features a software controlled sleep mode consuming only 10 mW. It also features an optional multi-constellation coverage GPS radio, and optional CDMA, GPRS, or HSPA+ modules as well as up to 256 MB of DDR2 RAM, 10/100 Ethernet, high speed USB hosts, and microSD socket. Additional features include battery backed RTC, Modbus, SPI, I2C, ADC, 2 UART ports, 4 DIOs, and more.

The TS-7670 is available now at $129 quantity 100. Single unit purchase is also available.

TS-7400-V2 Lowest Power and Lowest Cost SBC at $84

The TS-7400-V2 is a compact, low power, and cost competitive embedded computer. It runs at approximately 0.6 W when idle and 1.2 W when loaded and features a software controlled sleep mode consuming only 9 mW. The TS-7400-V2 includes up to 256MB RAM, 2GB NAND Flash, a microSD socket, and brings out many interfaces via a 40 pin header including: CAN, ADC, GPIO, SPI, I2C, I2S, and UARTs.

The TS-7400-V2 is available now at $84 quantity 100. Single unit purchase is also available.

Fast boot to Linux Kernel 2.6

Our NXP/Freescale i.MX286 embedded products run Linux 2.6.35 kernel out of the box from Micro SD cards, as well as an initial ramdisk for a very fast boot and a Debian Wheezy distribution for complete software support. Linux is highly recommended and our products embrace the open-source vision. There is no proprietary source code in the kernel since all the hardware specific functionalities are handled by user-space utilities. The complete hardware support provided by Linux enables quick application development.

Debian Wheezy for Embedded Development

The Debian Wheezy environment provides a powerful, stable, and familiar software stack, with over 28,000 ready-to-use software packages. It includes many common interpreters such as Python, Mono (C#), Ruby, PHP, TCL, Perl, Java, and Bash. Debian also includes the GNU Compiler Collection, allowing C/C++ on-board development.
