Hardware features

The PPC-A9-170-C has several expansion connectors on the backside – 4 USB 2.0 connectors, 1 LAN connector, and 4 RS232 connectors. It also features a WiFi and Bluetooth antenna, an HDMI connector, and a 3.5mm audio connector.

The WiFi/Bluetooth module is based on the Realtek RTL8723BS an 802.11bgn 2.4G single-chip that integrates Wireless LAN (WLAN) and an SDIO interface controller with an integrated Bluetooth 2.1/3.0/4.0 controller. It combines a WLAN MAC, a 1T1R capable WLAN baseband, and WLAN RF in a single chip.

Please note that a 4G/LTE module does not come with the product by default but can be added. Use the menu in the top right corner of the product page to add this module if you need it. The product also features a SIM card slot.

The CAN, RS485, RS232 connector is a 16 Pin 3.81mm screw terminal connector (as you can see from the image).

The product has 5 channels of UART in total. One UART channel is used for Bluetooth. The default setting is 4*RS232+Bluetooth. The UART can be easily changed between RS232 and RS485. If you need different settings, please contact us.

The speed of the RS232 and the RS485 port is up to 115200 Baud.

The PPC-A9-170-C has one channel 1Gb Ethernet port and one HDMI port which can be configured by software. The maximum resolution supported on the external HDMI monitor is 1920×1080 at 60Hz.

The PPC-A9-170-C has one 3.5mm Output/input connector and a 2W internal speaker when it comes to audio capabilities.


This System-on-Module makes it possible to integrate a whole computer into a device, significantly simplifying the customization of the device. This is why we are able to offer fast turnaround customization of all our products.

At the core of each Chipsee product lies a System-on-Module. This means all the products share the same core. It makes your application easily upgradable – without needing to rewrite a single line of code your application is upgraded, thanks to the same System-on-Module.

This product features the .iMX 6 series of application processors, the CS-SOM-iMX6Q.

The .iMX6Q Quad processor represents the latest achievement in integrated multimedia applications processors. They feature advanced implementation of the quad Arm® Cortex®-A9 core, which operates at speeds up to 1.2 GHz. They include 2D and 3D graphics processors, 1080p video processing, and integrated power management. Each processor provides a 64-bit DDR3/DDR3L/LPDDR2 memory interface and a number of other interfaces for connecting peripherals, such as WLAN, Bluetooth®, GPS, hard drive, displays, and camera sensors.

Contact us for further details if you want to buy the CS-SOM-iMX6Q separately.

Display and Touchscreen

The PPC-A9-170-C features a 17’’ display with a 1280×1024 pixel resolution and a 10-point capacitive touch screen. 10-point capacitive touchscreens offer a stable and accurate control over the device, as well as great image clarity.

The screen offers very high brightness of 400 nits. When it comes to the viewing angle, the screen offers various angles: top, bottom, left, and right view.

If your application requires a secondary display the HDMI port on the back of the panel allows the device to work in a double monitor configuration up to 1920×1080 pixel resolution at a 60Hz refresh rate.
