|Computer on Module||with NXP i.MX 8M Mini|
This member of the new and compact PicoCore™ Computer On Module product family is offered with NXP i.MX 8M Mini CPU.
Heterogeneous Multi-Core Processor Concept
The i.MX 8M Mini is NXP's first embedded heterogeneous multi-core applications processor. It brings together high-performance computing, power efficiency, enhanced system reliability and embedded security needed to drive the growth of fast-growing edge node computing, streaming multimedia, and machine learning applications. The heart of the processor is a scalable core complex with up to four ARM® Cortex®-A53 cores with up to 2GHz, plus one Cortex®-M4 for real-time processing with 400+ MHz. The i.MX 8M Mini also packs-in hardware 1080p video acceleration to enable two-way video applications, 2D and 3D graphics to provide a rich visual HMI experience,
Long Term Availability up to 2029
Another feature is the long-term availability up to minimum 2029.
Equipment and Interfaces
PicoCore™MX8MM comes with sufficient memory (RAM, SLC NAND Flash, eMMC Flash).
The module offers many interfaces on its 2x 100 poles plug connectors.
Part of the interfaces is specified per default (Interfaces-FIX), they are available on other PicoCore™ modules as far as possible. The Interfaces-FIX are 2x Serial (for debugging), 2x Ethernet, 1x USB Host, 1x USB Device, 1x CAN, 1x I²C (for the connection of external touch controllers) and analog audio signals (Line In/ Out/ Mic/ HP).
Due to the multiple assignment of the CPU's signal lines with various interfaces, one has the possibility to choose from the interfaces through registry entries. This part is called Interfaces-FLEX. A list of all possible interfaces and their pin assignment on the plug connector can be found in the hardware specification.
Please notice that not all available interfaces can be used simultaneously.
A MIPI-DSI interface with up to four lanes or a 24bit LVDS interface (up to FullHD) is available for display connection.
Linux was customized for PicoCore™MX8MM. Windows Embedded 10 IoT Core will be available in 2019. The operating systems support all interfaces, guaranteeing an easy software development without a deeper understanding of hardware.
