ARM – SG-iMX28

Not recommended for new design.

The SG-iMX28 is part of the freedom range of industrial processor boards, and is designed as a super component for industrial and consumer applications to help the developer get to market fast. The FreedomSG range offers a robust flexible solution to your developments.

The FreedomSG range allows developers to select the processor board that is right for their application, if the developer needs more, or less processing power you simply select another module from the FreedomSG range and connect to the fully compatible carrier board.

ARM – SG-iMX28


The SG-iMX28 uses ARM 9 technology based on the Freescale iMX28 multimedia applications processor running at up to 450MHz. The module provides a fantastic range of features which are accessible via industry standard connectors on a carrier board. The low power and robust design make the SG-iMX28 the ideal solution for cost sensitive applications.

To maintain the low cost and flexibility the SG-IMX28 uses a SODIMM module form-factor with securing holes for additional security. This form factor is the same throughout the range providing a platform suitable for the harshest industrial application.

The SG-iMX28 is optimised for high performance and low power. The low power characteristics of the module, with a power consumption of less that 2W make this board the ideal choice for battery or solar powered systems. The board offers extensive power management capabilities designed to optimise performance.

The feature rich module provides: touchscreen display interface, USB, CAN, Ethernet, Serial I/O, I²C and is suitable of a wide range of applications such as: HMI, handheld scanners, medical devices, industrial controls and drives, smart energy meters, the list goes on….
