Tiny i.MX6 UL DIN-rail computer has dual mini-PCIe slots

Dec 12, 2019 — by Eric Brown 586 views

Axiomtek’s compact, rugged “Agent200-FL-DC” DIN-rail computer runs Linux on a low-power i.MX6 UL. Features include 10/100 Ethernet, USB, serial, DIO, optional CAN, and 2x mini-PCIe with a SIM slot.

Axiomtek has posted product details for a “coming soon” Agent200-FL-DC DIN-rail computer. Like last year’s similar IFB125 and the IFB122 from 2017, the Agent200-FL-DC is a headless gateway that runs a Yocto based Linux stack on NXP’s 528MHz Cortex-A7 based i.MX6 UltraLight (UL) SoC. This time it’s Yocto 2.4 “Rocko” running on a newer Linux kernel 4.9.88. This is the only one of the three that also supports Ubuntu 18.04 (with the same kernel), as well as Android 8.1.

Like the earlier models, there’s a modest 256MB of DDR3 RAM, and like the earlier IFB122, there’s 4GB eMMC — half that of the IFB125. Like the IFB125, there’s a single RS-232/422/485 port, but instead of a port that provides both SPI and I2C interfaces, you get an optional, similarly DB9-based CANBus port. (The older IFB122 instead has dual RS-232/422/485.)
Unlike the earlier models, the Agent200-FL-DC has only a single 10/100Mbps Ethernet port instead of two. Once again, there’s a single USB 2.0 port and a single DIO interface, and it’s a higher-end 4-in/4-out connection.
The Agent200-FL-DC features dual mini-PCIe slots instead of one, supporting optional 3G, GPS, and WiFi modules. There is no mention of the previous antennas, however, and there’s no relay. Other features include a watchdog and 7x LEDs, including 3x programmable indicators.
Otherwise, the fanless, 125 x 100 x 31mm system appears to be identical to the IFB125. The 0.3 Kilogram system provides IP40 ingress protection and -40°C to 70°C support, can withstand vibration at up to 5G @ 5-500MHz. Other features include a 9V to 48V DC input and DIN-rail and wall-mounting.
