At the NXP Tech Day held in Detroit, Michigan, Toradex has announced the start of the early access program in collaboration with NXP® Semiconductors for the i.MX 95 Titan EVK.

Titan is an Evaluation Kit (EVK) from Toradex based on NXP’s flagship i.MX 95 applications processors family — featuring NXP eIQ® Neutron NPU, Arm® Mali™ GPU, NXP image signal processor, and multiple compute domains in a functional safety development platform.

Toradex was chosen by NXP to support its Early Access Program to accelerate the adoption of the i.MX 95 applications processor in key markets and applications.

The Titan EVK empowers developers to kickstart projects and smoothly transition from proof-of-concept to large-scale production with ease, speed, and advanced security — enabling a wide range of machine vision and advanced edge applications across several markets including automotive edge, industry 4.0, robotics, healthcare, transportation and smart office. The Titan EVK has been carefully engineered to cater to evolving needs such as functional safety, security compliance, edge AI solutions, real-time processing, machine learning performance, and power efficiency.

“Toradex is the first early access embedded partner for i.MX 95 applications processors. The Toradex i.MX 95 Titan EVK will allow access to our latest i.MX 9 family with the most advanced features we have offered on the platform to date,” said Dan Loop Vice President and GM, Automotive Edge Processing at NXP. “Toradex has been a strategic embedded partner for i.MX since 2014 and together we have enabled more than 25 i.MX products to provide developers with a highly optimized platform to begin their development.”

The Titan EVK comes with some key features including extensive scalability options that go beyond the typical offerings of evaluation boards. This flexibility provides ample room for customization, making it a perfect fit for a wide array of applications. The inclusion of an M.2 and mini-PCIe slot ensures effortless integration of Wi-Fi/ Bluetooth, cellular modems, high-speed storage and other peripherals. Toradex will soon make available Dual-band 1×1 Wi-Fi 6 / Bluetooth / Matter Tri-Radio module based on NXP’s IW612 and future Wi-Fi 6E wireless connectivity offerings. The Titan EVK also introduces LPDDR5 memory elevating memory performance and graphics capabilities to a new level. In addition to the two TSN-capable Gigabit Ethernet ports, one of the stand-out key features is an optional 10 Gigabit Ethernet port, a feature not commonly found in other industrial IoT evaluation kits. This addition enhances connectivity and throughput for data-intensive edge applications.

Toradex has carefully chosen components to enable customers with the flexibility to switch to automotive-grade components in their custom designs, seamlessly transitioning from development to production.

“This reinforces NXP’s continued validation of our role as a strategic partner within their ecosystem. The Titan Evaluation Kit promises to accelerate innovation while enabling ease-of-use, and faster time-to-market without compromising on security. We’ve listened to the requirements of our strategic customers and partners in the industry and, as a result, designed this evaluation kit that integrates scalability, modern high-performance features, low development risk, and cost-efficiency.” said Samuel Imgrueth, CEO of Toradex.

“Toradex’s early access program for the i.MX 95 Titan EVK, in collaboration with NXP Semiconductors, is a pivotal step in streamlining the path from prototype to production for industrial IoT and edge computing applications,” said Steven Dickens, VP and Practice Leader from the Futurum Group. “This initiative not only accelerates adoption in key sectors but also addresses critical requirements for functional safety, security, and machine learning at the edge, marking a significant evolution in embedded computing platforms,” he added.
