Control & Visualization Module


The Control & Visualization (C&V) Module is a high performance Single Board Computer (SBC) aimed for the rapid development of industrial controllers with feature rich user interfaces and multimedia applications. It is ideally suited for designs with critical time to market, demanding environmental requirements and long product life cycles.


    Featuring the i.MX537 controller, the CV module provides the power to run even the most complex applications. The highly efficient ARM Cortex-A8 core combined with the NEON SIMD and a Vector Floating Point co-processor is perfectly suited for demanding real-time control applications. Outstanding multimedia features support the implementation of feature rich 2D/3D user interfaces, including the latest Rich Internet Applications.
    With a 100Mbps Ethernet port and two CAN inter-faces, the module perfectly integrates into industrial networks. USB host and device ports provide the means to connect a variety of off-the-shelf peripherals.

    The CV Module comes with a bootloader and board support packages for Windows Embedded Compact 7. Production grade drivers for the on-board peripherals are included.

    NetModule offers licensing of the complete design, providing all information required to manufacture the module. This ensures the highest possible degree of independence to the customer.
