This item will be released at a future date.

Energy-efficient edge computing, accelerated Machine Learning

  • 36 mm x 36 mm
  • Cortex®-A55, Cortex®-M33
  • Pin Compatible with i.MX6UL
  • Cost optimized

Product Overview

The module based on the i.MX 93 processor from NXP offers high computing power with low energy consumption. Measuring only 36 mm x 36 mm, equipped with an Arm® Ethos™-U65 microNPU and based on NXP’s innovative Energy Flex architecture, the module enables the development of powerful, cost-effective and energy-efficient ML applications, e.g. for IoT applications.

The fully industrial-grade phyCORE-i.MX 93 SOM is characterized by its price-optimized Bill of Materials. Thanks to Direct Solder Connect technology, the module is suitable for large-scale production and the manufacturing costs of the end application are significantly reduced.

The pin compatibility with the phyCORE-STM32MP13x and phyCORE-i.MX 6UL enables the development of scalable applications in terms of price/performance ratio.

Direct Solder Connect

Signals are routed to solder contacts around the outside edge of the PCB. The SOM can be purchased in reels and soldered down just like any other component in your Bill of Materials.

Customization Options

Select exactly what you need for your application by scaling RAM up to 2GB, customizing audio and graphics requirements, plus other signal and component options. All providing a pin compatible interconnect.


Dimensions of 36 mm x 36 mm make the SOM well suited for small enclosures. No additional space for heat sinks or shields due to low power and low EMI design.

Feature Rich

The phyCORE-i.MX 93 may be small in size but it still retains many important features with high security and graphics capabilities.
