CHANDLER, Ariz., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Arizona-based Boundary Devices announces the availability of a new single board computer called the "Nitrogen53", which is based on Freescale Semiconductor's i.MX535 processor. The Nitrogen53 is the third i.MX-based single board computer in Boundary Devices' lineup, which includes the company's i.MX51-based Nitrogen and i.MX31 Mercury solutions.

With a processor speed of 1GHz and up to 2GB of DDR2 memory at 400Mhz, the i.MX535 is a powerful multimedia platform capable of 1080P video playback. The ARM Cortex-A8 i.MX535 has a 2D/3D graphics accelerator supporting either OpenGL® ES 2.0 or OpenVG1.1 for rich user interfaces.

The Nitrogen53 board offers multiple display interfaces including HDMI, LVDS, and TTL. It has been optimized for low power applications, and uses the Dialog DA9053 power management IC for sophisticated battery-powered or Power-over-Ethernet designs.

"The i.MX53 delivers a high level of performance, flexibility and multimedia capabilities which makes it a perfect fit for the Nitrogen family of solutions," said Ken Obuszewski, director of i.MX product management, Freescale. We are proud to be working with innovators like Boundary Devices who continue to meet their customer's evolving requirements in the embedded and consumer space."
