CJB C2: ARM CPUboard with NXP iMX53x

C2: the perfect ARM solution for any HMI, Control & TouchPLC application.

The choice of a good ARM Cortex-A8 processor, with high-performace graphics as it's the NXP iMX536, has lead CJB to a general-purpose design for the ARM-C2 CPUboard, quite performing and cheap at the same time.

_________ informations ____________________________________________________________________________________

The C2 board is available in two versions: Full-Featured and Depopulated. The latter is perfect to create control systems which will fit all the following application fields:

  • "Food Appliances" controllers for professional kitchens (Ovens, Steamers)
  • Vending Machines (especially outdoor)
  • Ticketing & Parking Machines
  • Small Controls with friendly "smartphone like" graphic interface

The software support from CJB makes the C2 fully programmable with CJB's IEC-1131 Power-PLC, while the GUI, especially if managed through a capacitive touch (PCAP), will give amazing performances like you have from the most recent smartphones and tablets.
