TEL AVIV, Israel – June 27, 2023 – Variscite, a leading worldwide System on Module (SoM) designer, developer and manufacturer, today announced it has extended the guaranteed availability and lifespan of its SoMs based on the NXP i.MX7, i.MX6 and i.MX 6UltraLite. This impressive longevity extension provides Variscite customers with the assurance to continue producing their devices built on these modules until at least 2035.

The Longevity update applies to the following products:
– VAR-SOM-MX7 – Based on the NXP i.MX7, 1GHz Dual-core Arm Cortexâ„¢-A7 processor and real-time 200MHz Arm Cortex-M4 co-processor.
– VAR-SOM-MX6 – A flexible SoM suitable for a broad range of embedded applications such as industrial and multimedia. Based on NXP’s iMX6 QuadPlus/Quad/Dual/DualLite/Solo cores, up to 1.2GHz Arm Cortex-A9.
– VAR-SOM-SOLO/DUAL – highly integrated solution based on NXP’s i.MX6 DualLite/Solo 1GHz Arm Cortex-A9.
– DART-6UL – Small size SoM with up to 900MHz CPU clock NXP’s i.MX 6UltraLite/ i.MX6ULL Arm Cortex-A7 processor, featuring an optimized power, size and cost solution.
– VAR-SOM-6UL – Featuring a slim-lined price-point, the SoM runs on up to 900MHz CPU clock NXP’s i.MX 6UltraLite/6ULL Arm Cortex-A7 processor.

“As leaders in the SoM market supporting thousands of customers in various embedded segments, we are committed to generous longevity across all our platforms. Our extended longevity alongside the high quality of our products and long-term hardware and software support give our customers peace of mind knowing that their end products are rock-solid for years to come,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “Our in-house production provides us with the ultimate production flexibility and allows us to further extend the longevity even beyond the original 15 years, while maintaining a stable supply-chain, as we have done even through the recent worldwide component crisis.”

Variscite’s longevity program is specified here.

The VAR-SOM-MX6, VAR-SOM-SOLO/DUAL and VAR-SOM06UL are members of the VAR-SOM Pin2Pin family that enable compatibility with a wide range of modules based on different processors, performance and features. Pin-compatibility allows Variscite’s customers to easily scale at any point of the product lifecycle while using the same carrier board design for all platforms and enjoy reduced development time, costs, and risks. An extended lifespan of the design can be achieved by upscaling to a newer pin-compatible SoM.
