phyCORE®-i.MX 8M Plus
Edge computing module for accelerated machine learning applications.
The phyCORE-i.MX 8M Plus SOM is one of the smallest connectorized SOMs on the market. Features are not compromised as the 37×40 mm module includes an interconnect of 300 pins including dual MIPI CSI-2 camera, USB 3.0, dual Gigabit Ethernet, and PCIe as well as options for display including MIPI-DSI, LVDS, and HDMI. The features of the SOM combined with on-device machine learning accelerators provide a platform for your next-gen application.
The SOM is now available for members of PHYTECs ALPHA program with general availability in Q1/2021.
On-device Machine Learning
Fast response time with machine learning hardware acceleration. Run your TensorFlow Lite model directly on the device without utilizing all your processor cores.
Low Power Design
Beginning with the NXP 14LPC FinFET process technology at the applications processor, low power design elements are continued on the SOM with selections such as LPDDR4 and use of the NXP codesigned PMIC.
Versatile Display Capabilities
Customization options to reduce Bill of Materials including depopulation of connectors as well as the option for direct solder BGA version for complete elimination of connector cost.
