DIN Rail CPU 60 - high end Cortex-A8 Embedded PC Module

DIN Rail CPU 60

The device DIN Rail CPU 60 is equipped with an ICnova i.MX536 SODIMM module. It operates with an Freescale i.MX536 Cortex-A8 core at 800MHz CPU clock.


  • ICnova i.MX536 SODIMM module with up to 800 MHz CPU clock
  • 512MB DDR3-RAM
  • 8MB NOR-Flash
  • 4GB NAND-Flash
  • External µSD cardreader
  • 2x ADC Input / 2x DAC Output
  • 4x digital input
  • 4x RS485, 1x CAN, 2x RS232 interface
  • 1x 10/100 Base-T-Ethernet-Port
  • Each 1x UART for uplink and downlink
  • 2x USB interface ( 1x Host, 1x Device)
  • Arbitrary number of modules mountable side by side
  • Easy connection of all modules with BUS connector
  • All modules can communicate via UART and RS485
  • DIN Rail enclosure: 6 pitch units (div)
  • Other DIN-Rail modules available
  • Linux OS, toolchain and sources are included
  • Input voltage: 24V DC
  • Tempearture range from -10°C to +70°C


All Modules provided by In-Circuit usually have a Buildroot based system preinstalled, so they can be used out of the box.
Login as "root" for which no password is set.

The Support-CD contains all sources required to build the linux image and rootfs for the ICnova i.MX536 SODIMM on the DIN Rail CPU 60.

If you are new to kernel building please refer to First Steps with Buildroot.

A version currently unter development for buildroot 2014.02 is available here. For this version full functionality is not guaranteed.

How To

Access to Linux The boot and default login console are provided on the "RS232 (DBG UART)" connector with the following parameters:

 - Baudrate: 115200
 - Databits: 8
 - Stopbit: 1
 - Parity: none
 - Flow control: none

A new image can be loaded by SD-card or over Network. By default the Bootloader is configured to search for a SD-card. If a SD-card with a suitable Linux-Image was found, the system starts to boot from the SD-card. Otherwise the system starts from the internal flash memory.

Accessing the 7 Segment Display The DIN Rail CPU 60 has a 7 Segment Display on board. The following command sets the characters on the display:

 $ echo cf > /sys/bus/spi/devices/spi2.0/bcd
