SMARC Computer-on-Module has i.MX 8M Nano MCU

By eeNews Europe

conga-SMX8-Nano is a new low-end performance class for the SMARC form-factor. It offers ultra-low power graphics capabilities and carefully selected I/Os. The NXP i.MX 8M Nano processor is intended for low cost application areas not previously catered for by Computer-on-Modules. Only 2 watts are needed to supply the board. The board also has headless systems with IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol for IIoT applications.

The new conga-SMX8-Nano SMARC Computer-on-Modules come in three variants with a quad, dual or single-core Arm Cortex-A53 processor and a single Cortex-M7. All boards have options for the 0°C to +60°C and -40°C to +85°C industrial temperature ranges. An optional, processor integrated GC7000UltraLite 3D GPU supports 2x shader as well as OpenGL, OpenCL and Vulkan.

Embedded displays can be connected through the dual-channel LVDS, eDP or MIPI-DSI connectors. The modules support up to 2 GByte low-power LPDDR4 and an eMMC 5.1 NVM slot supports up to 128 GByte. Embedded cameras can be attached through the MIPI-CSI-2 interface, and 4x USB 2.0 and 3x UART are available. A Gbit Ethernet and an optional M2 WiFi/Bluetooth extension help to connect the module to other systems.

The new modules are supplied with a comprehensive ecosystem including ready-to-go boot loader implementation, pre-qualified Linux, Yocto and Android BSPs, and evaluation carrier boards.
