Computer on Module with NXP i.MX 8M Plus

Another member of the compact PicoCore™ Computer On Module product family is offered with NXP i.MX 8M Plus CPU.
The form factor size of only 35 x 40mm allows the use in compact housings. The module features excellent multimedia functions and is ideally suited for machine learning and industrial IoT applications thanks to its reliability.

Heterogeneous Multicore Processor Concept

Starting with the i.MX8M Nano CPU and the i.MX8M Mini CPU, the i.MX8M 8M Plus CPU from NXP rounds off the i.MX8M CPU range.
Several additional functions and interfaces were added, such as machine learning, CortexM7 with 800MHz, LVDS, MIPI-DSI, and HDMI as display interfaces, a high-performance graphics unit (2D/3D), USB 3.0, and CAN-FD to name just a few.

The i.MX 8M Plus is a heterogeneous multicore application processor for embedded modules. Used on the PicoCore™ System on Module, it is ideally suited for applications requiring powerful graphics processing and multimedia features, machine learning, and industrial 4.0 applications.

The processor consists of a Dual or Quad ARM® Cortex®-A53 core with up to 1.8GHz, plus a Cortex®-M7 core for real-time processing at 800MHz. The processor also features a Neural Processing Unit (NPU).
The i.MX 8M Plus features video encode (incl. h.265) and decode, 2D/3D graphics acceleration, and various audio and voice functionalities.

more information on NXP i.MX 8M Plus applications processor

Long term availability until 2035

Another feature is the long availability of the PicoCoreMX8MP until at least 2035.

 

Features and Interfaces

The PicoCore™MX8MP has sufficient memory (RAM and eMMC Flash).

The module offers many interfaces on the 2x 100 pin connectors.

The PicoCore™MX8MP has max. 2x Gigabit Ethernet (opt.. RGMII), 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n WLAN, BT 5.0 LE, 1x USB Host 2.0/3.0, 1x USB Device OTG 2.0/3.0, max. 2x CAN, max. 4x UART, max. 4x I2C, max. 2x SPI and Audio Line In/ Out/ Mic/ Headphone/ I2S. The Dual Image Signal Processor allows a max. of 2x MIPI-CSI cameras. Additionally RTC, max. 4x PWM, SPDIF, ESAI, SAI, and SSI are available.

For display control a MIPI-DSI interface with four lanes or 1-2 LVDS interfaces with four lanes, or an LVDS interface with eight lanes or DVI is available.

Touch panels can be connected externally via I2C.

Operating system

The operating system adapted for the PicoCore™MX8MP is Linux. Linux Buildroot or Yocto supports all interfaces so that simple software development can be guaranteed without great hardware knowledge.

FreeRTOS is available to control the real-time kernel M7.

NXP i.MX 8M Plus Linux Development Board

For an easy start of development, we offer an immediately executable PicoCore™MX8MP starter kit including embedded board, baseboard, display, cables, and access to documentation and software. The software includes the Board Support Package and Toolchain for Bare Metal or FreeRTOS.

This is rounded off by our wide range of software services, workshops, and free support via the forum, e-mail, and telephone.
