A very reasonable requirement, component end-of-life pain is real. However,
at the last company I worked used Digi ccmx53 soms because they claimed
long hardware support. After a few years it became apparent that Digi would
not support Linux kernel updates and there was no way to get at the
proprietary firmware for sub-components - notably the WiFi radio drivers. I
involuntarily spit on the floor if I hear the name RedPine.

Not that you'll have kernel problems, but I thought I'd share that. They
had settled on Phytec for their IMX SOMs but I don't know what they chose
for their Marvell solutions.
