Technologic Systems releases low cost NXP/Freescale i.MX283 ARM products with guaranteed long life

Published as a News Article on Oct 24, 2013 (Updated Dec 16, 2020)

Technologic Systems announces a family of products based on the NXP/Freescale i.MX283 ARM9 CPU running Linux at 454MHz. This release including multiple form factors enables a wide range of embedded systems applications and provides 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 i.MX283 products, enabling easy portability to customer s applications. The family software package includes:

  • Fast boot to Linux Kernel 2.6.35
  • Full Debian Squeeze 6.0 distribution
  • Opencore FPGA reloadable in software
  • Flexible programming language support
  • Source code examples available


Fast boot to Linux Kernel 2.6

Our NXP/Freescale i.MX283 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 Squeeze 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.

Full Debian Squeeze for Embedded Development

The Debian Squeeze 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.

FPGA Customization

Our NXP/Freescale i.MX283 computers include an user-programmable Lattice XP2 5K LUT FPGA which by default implements several of our controllers such as XUARTs, and SPI controller, and more. The FPGA allows logic which can be tailored for your project in Verilog, or using our FPGA customization services. This allows simple additions of features such as pulse counters, quadrature, pwm, uarts, custom PID loops, and much more.
