NetBurner SOMRT1061 SoM Features Dual Ethernet in Tiny From Factor

NetBurner SOMRT1061 SoM Features Dual Ethernet in Tiny From Factor

The NetBurner SOMRT1061 is a tiny SoM with a stamp-sized 25.4mm x 25.4mm footprint. Powered by a NXP’s i.MX RT1061 Arm Cortex M7 SoC the SoM ships with 67 usable GPIO pins 1MB of internal SRAM, 32MB of external RAM, and 8MB of flash storage.

Additionally, it offers 10/100M Ethernet with PTP, an on-die temperature sensor, three FlexIO modules, two USB OTG 2.0 controllers, I2C, SPI, ADC, SD Card, CAN, UART, and many more. The i.MX RT1061 Embedded IoT Development Kit SOMRT1061 features an array of functionalities, including two general programmable timers, four periodical interrupt timers, three quad timers (QTimer) providing a total of 11 I/O signals, four FlexPWMs, and four quadrature encoders/decoders.

For quick and easy development, the company provides a development kit that includes the SOMRT1061 module pre-soldered onto a carrier board. This setup makes all I/Os and peripherals accessible for experimentation and prototyping. Additionally, the kit includes a license for the NetBurner Network.

Previously, we have written about many other SoMs including the ArmSoM Sige7, iW-RainboW-G61M, and 8devices TobuFi feel free to check them out if you are interested in the topic.
