The Easy Entry into System Development

Flexible electronics building sets by Solectrix

Not every system development has to start at zero. As the basic requirements for such projects are similar in many fields, we have used our long-time experience with handheld devices to create a comprehensive basic framework that can be used as a proven foundation for your new system, thus accelerating your development in a decisive way.


SX Mobile Device Kit

Art. No. 500929

Solectrix has many years of experience in developing professional mobile devices. Supporting our customers in developing their mobile devices is the motivation behind the SX Mobile Device Kit (MDK). Based on the NXP i.MX8M Mini CPU, the SX Mobile Device Kit is designed as a versatile mobile device platform. Special needs of mobile devices like low power consumption or a reliable battery supply and charging operation are considered.

All areas of a product development like electronics, software, design and construction are covered. Focusing on mobile vision applications, the MDK provides the opportunity to be extended with a set of imaging sensors. Use the MDK to evaluate the imaging sensor that best fits your application!

Board support packages including driver support for all elementary interfaces and components that are present on the MDK are provided. Solectrix offers customized engineering services for the integration of your specific software components.

You can choose to build a mobile device based on the MDK PCBA as it is or to modify the MDK to exactly fulfill the specific needs of your application. In any case, using the MDK can help you achieve shorter development times. Initiating a functional model phase with the MDK enables you to start the software development early. Concurrently, you can develop the prototype according to your detailed requirements.
