SMARC 2.0 CPU Modules Based on NXP i.MX8M Processors
Taipei, Taiwan, October 31, 2019 – IBASE announces the RM-N8M Series SMARC 2.0 Computer-on-Modules using 64-bit NXP i.MX8M application processors with ARM technologies for industrial and transportation computing solutions. The RM-N8M Series scalable platforms power various embedded systems with flexible and expandable features for smart factory, imaging, machine vision, gateway, in-flight entertainment and rolling stock applications including passenger information, entertainment and communications systems.
“We are pleased to leverage the scalability of the i.MX 8 series of applications processors to reduce time-to-market for our customers,” said Archer Chien, Director of Solution Product Planning Dept. at IBASE. “The RM-N8M takes advantage of these performance-scalable multicore platforms to enable highly integrated control systems with advanced graphics, imaging and computational capabilities.”
The new RM-N8M SMARC Series targets lower power and small form factor systems, and measures only 82mm by 50mm. It features high flexibility in terms of platform design and customization for end-user applications, while reducing development time and accelerating time to market. Equipped with 3GB soldered LPDDR4 and up to 64GB eMMC Flash memory, it has an extensive set of I/O support with 1x GbE, 2x USB 3.0/2.0, 2x MIPI CSI-2 video inputs, 2x PCI-E (x1) Gen2, 2x SPI/eSPI, 4x UART, 4x I2C, 2x I2S, and 12x GPIO. Display connections are provided by a 1080p MIPI Display Serial Interface (DSI) and HDMI V2.0a with up to 4K resolution.
The ARM Cortex-A53 based RM-N8M modules ship with 15-year longevity support and have been pre-qualified with Yocto v2.5 and Android 9 operating systems. The commercial grade variant supports dual-/quad-core 1.5GHz processors and 0°C to +70°C operating temperature range while industrial grade counterparts run with dual-/quad-core 1.3GHz CPUs and at -40°C to +85°C extended temperature. Also available is the RP-103-SMC, a 3.5-inch disk-size evaluation carrier board providing a broad range of interface and a 12V~24VDC input.
