Product Numbering Scheme

The below table describes the structure of the Product Number (PID8):

PPPP4-digits number, indicating the Product Configuration (PID4) that describes the key properties of the product (e.g. Product Group, RAM capacity, etc.)
VV2-digits number, indicating the Major and Minor Version (in that order)
AA2-digits number, indicating the Assembly Variant

See the complete list of available combinations on the Revision History table of the corresponding product page.


Product number (PID8): 00291100:

0029: Apalis iMX6D 512MB
11: Major Version 1, Minor Version 1, Version V1.1 in short
00: Assembly Variant A
