i.MX6 board designers: NXP processors and boards

Selected an NXP processor for your device? Then you’re probably looking for iMX board designers that can offer:

  • Full custom board design
  • Design experience across NXP’s processor range, including iMX6
  • Customisation of third-party SoMs where time is short or the projected sales volumes are low
  • Build of custom PCBs using the whole range of iMX6s from low power i.MX6UL, through the range of solo, dual and quad processors and including the SoloX with on-board co-processor M4 core
  • Porting of both Linux and Android to iMX6 products in multiple different configurations

iMX6 capabilities – iMX6 board design case study

ByteSnap NXP Approved Engineering Consultant - iMX project 1



“We are very pleased with ByteSnap. Their expertise helped us bring our product to market in a short time frame, and we have no doubts about using them again.”

Dan Conlon, Product Management Lead at Cocoon.

Our work for smart security device Cocoon led us to win a British Engineering Excellence Award in 2016.

To accelerate the product development, ByteSnap initially developed a prototype sensor board that interfaced directly to an off-the-shelf iMX6 development board.

This allowed our software team to develop the BSP, and Cocoon’s application team to progress application work, without having to wait for the bespoke electronics.

It also flushed out some early technical issues, saving time at the product development stage. As the Linux BSP progressed, code was made available and test software written to exercise the whole system from drivers through to hardware.

Once the sensor board had been tested and software work was underway, ByteSnap designed the production sensor PCB and CPU board, a dense, high speed digital, PCB design involving DDR, EMMc, power and WiFi.
