This document shows the documentation for the SCM-i.MX 6Q rhomb core. Preliminary version, use only for data updating or corrections.


The SCM-i.MX6Q is a rhomb core module based on the Single Chip Module featuring Freescale's i.MX6Q, also known as SCM-i.MX6Q. This thin and small board, is easily pluggable on the standard rhomb core sockets and has been designed as to be the brain of your modular system. It mainly accomplishes two different roles: power supply management and computing. The SCM-i.MX6 core is capable of managing the input power in order to accommodate it according to the rhomb standard specifications.

This board sports a small but mighty 14mm x 17mm SCM-i.MX 6Q, built using proven NXP® technology, including the i.MX 6Q applications processor and MMPF0100 power management system. The addition of integrated flash memory and over a hundred passive system components is critical to provide a robust board design, and enables an overall design that is up to 50% smaller vs. a discrete implementation.

The i.MX 6 Quad Applications Processor embedded in this SoC is based on ARM® Cortex®-A9 MPCore platform, and some of its features are a ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore 4-cpu processor with with TrustZone®, each core having 3s Kbyte L1 Instruction and Data Cache, a Private Timer and Watchdo and a Cortex-A9 NEON Media Processing Engine Co-Processor.

Two options for the SCM-i.MX6 rhomb core are available. The only difference in between them is the size of the RAM: 1GB or 2GB, using in both cases LPDDR2 memory.

The next table summarizes the main features of the rhomb SCM-i.MX6Q core.

SCM-i.MX6Q core features
ARM Cortex A-9 quad-core CPU, 32 bit
Operating frequency up to 800 MHz
NEON SIMD Media Processing Engine
Off board program and storage memory
Max input voltage 6V
100% rhomb standard v4.2 compatible

Core specifications

The SCM-i.MX 6Q core is the second to arrive to the rhomb platform. It integrates a Freescale SCM-i.MX 6Q SoC, -which has a PF0100 PMIC and RAM memory embedded itself- a PMIC, a USB Hub and an auxiliary ATtiny microcontroller in a small board that measures 45x27x3mm. In addition to these components, the Block Diagram also shows that, among other auxiliary components, the board has eight tiny connectors named from J1 to J8, all those components assembled in order to accomplish the standard for the rhomb modular open hardware platform. Those male connectors are intended to drive all the signals coming from the SoC, PMIC, and the Hub, to a rhomb motherboard such as the Gaia or the Hyperion boards. Look at the "Connections" section to see which signals are available on the connectors.

[Se debe indicar con más profundidad las capacidades de la placa. Para ello, basarse en el diagrama de bloques. Indicar qué componentes componen el core (PMIC, SoC, Hub, RAM, shield, etc) y hacer una descripción detallada, sobre todo de sus características. Indicar consumos máximos]

SCMiMX6 Block Diagram V1.jpg
The next figure identifies among others the SCM-i.MX 6Q, an ARM SoC of recent creation that intend s to be used in consumer electronics products such as tablets and smartphones. It includes a quad-core processor based on the Cortex-A9 architecture with a maximum clock speed of 800 MHz with 1MB of L2-cache memory. The SoC incorporates the following hardware accelerators: VPU, IPUv3H, GPU3Dv4, GPU2Dv2, GPUVG and ASRC. Videos can be 1080p30 encoded/decoded. The RAM is assembled Package on Package (PoP), so two options for the RAM are available: 1GB or 2GB. In both cases the memory is LPDDR2.

A complete Power Management IC (PMIC) is used on the SCM-i.MX 6Q core in order to provide power supply not only to the SoC, but also to the entire rhomb modular system. The MAX77686 is in charge of this behalf. This IC is designed for the latest consumer electronics devices such as smartphones, and contains nine efficient buck converters, 26 LDOs and a Real Time Clock (RTC). The linear regulators provide greater than 60db PSRR and less than 45uV of output noise. This IC is managed by the SoC trough I2C and is configured according to the system requirements.

The left image on the "Overview" section shows the SCM-i.MX 6Q core assembled with a shield. This shielding has been implemented in order to reduce the electromagnetic perturbations bearing in mind the normative regarding Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).

NOTE1: A revisar en prototipo. En documentación no queda claro cómo llamar a estas señales desde el sistema. En la documentación (Software IO Mux) aparecen cómo conflicto, pero ésto se debe a que en este programa se trabaja sobre la versión convencional de i.MX6Q, no la versión SCM.
NOTE2: GPIO34 is connected to SCM-i.MX6 CSI0_MCLK pin, which is also referred to in other Freescale documentatin as GPIO5_O19.

  • Precaution against Electrostatic Discharge. When handling rhom products, ensure that the environment is protected against static electricity. Follow the next recommendations:
  1. The users should wear anti-static clothing and use earth band when manipulating the device.
  2. All objects that come in direct contact with devices should be made of materials that do not produce static electricity that would cause damage.
  3. Equipment and work table must be earthed.
  4. Ionizer is recommended to remove electron charge.
  • Contamination. Be sure to use semiconductor products in the environment that may not be exposed to dust or dirt adhesion.
  • Temperature/Humidity. Semiconductor devices are sensitive to environment temperature and humidity. High temperature or humidity may deteriorate semiconductor devices characteristics. Therefore avoid storage or usage in such conditions.
  • Mechanical Shock. Care should be exercised not to apply excessive mechanical shock or force on the connectors and semiconductors devices.
  • Chemical. Do not expose semiconductor device to chemical because reaction to chemical may cause deterioration of device characteristics.
  • Light Protection. In case of non-EMC (Epoxy Molding Compound) package, do not expose semiconductor IC to strong light. It may cause devices malfunction. Some special products which utilize the light or have security function are excepted from this specification.
  • Radioactive, Cosmic and X-ray. Semiconductor devices can be influenced by radioactive, cosmic ray or X-ray. Radioactive, cosmic and X-ray may cause soft error during device operation. Therefore semiconductor devices must be shielded under environment that may be exposed to radioactive, cosmic ray or X-ray.
  • EMS (Electromagnetic Susceptibility). Note that semiconductor devices characteristics may be affected by strong electromagnetic waves or magnetic field during operation.
