The ready-to-use module and the appropriate development tools simplify integration of the new processor technology into the customer application and optimize time-to-market of the end product. Typical applications for the robust MSC SM2S-IMX8 module are industrial automation and visualization systems, robotics, infotainment systems and building automation. The processor module is designed for operation in the full industrial temperature range from -40 to +85°C. The 64-bit i.MX8 SoC integrated on the module contains up to eight cores: two ARM Cortex-A72 cores, four ARM Cortex-A53 cores and two Cortex-M4F real-time cores. Up to 8GB LPDDR4 SDRAM and up to 64GB eMMC Flash memory are available on the module for program and data storage. The wide range of common interfaces includes Dual Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express Gen 3, SATA III, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, UART, SPI and I²S Audio. Cameras can be connected via two MIPI CSI-2 interfaces. Two CAN connections and an optional on-board wireless module are available as standard. The HDMI 2.0, Dual Channel LVDS and DisplayPort graphics interfaces can be used to connect up to three independent high resolution displays.
