CL-SOM-iMX7 is a miniature computer-on-module (CoM) / system-on-module (SoM) board designed to serve as a building block in embedded applications.

CL-SOM-iMX7 is built around the Freescale i.MX7 System-on-Chip featuring an advanced ARM Cortex-A7 CPU coupled with a dedicated real-time ARM Cortex-M4 MCU. The SoC is supplemented with up-to 2GB DDR3 and 32GB of on-board SLC NAND or eMMC storage. Featuring a wide range of embedded interfaces, CL-SOM-iMX7 is a versatile platform for industrial automation and control systems. Dual Gbit Ethernet, 2x2 MIMO dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 make CL-SOM-iMX7 an excellent solution for networking, communications and IoT applications.

CL-SOM-iMX7 is provided with comprehensive documentation and full ready-to-run SW support for Linux.
