The i.MX 8X Processor

NXP i.MX 8X Icon black
The NXP i.MX 8X family of application processors provide a vast offering of solutions with respect to features and performance. The QuadXPlus, DualXPlus, and DualX platforms are based on Arm® Cortex®-A35, and Cortex-M4F.

High-density PCB interconnects

i.MX 8X interfaces are routed to our high-density PCB interconnects on the underside of the SOM. Design the mating connectors on your carrier board.

DSP and multimedia processing

The NXP i.MX 8X features a Tensilica® HiFi 4 DSP. Utilize this for advanced audio and image processing for your application. In addition to the discrete DSP the NXP i.MX 8X supports OpenGL 3.1, OpenCL 1.2 EP, OpenVG 1.1, Vulkan, 4K h.265 decode and 1080p h.264 encoding.

Software that is specifically designed for its hardware

PHYTEC Board Support Packages (BSPs) are software bundles that implement and support operating systems on our System on Modules. PHYTEC BSPs are application development-ready, offering all essential drivers and board-level feature support. The only task left for you is application integration. This way, you can focus on your core competencies while we take care of the rest.

Small footprint for small enclosures

With dimensions of 52 x 42 mm it is well suited for small enclosures.

Simplified for you to work seamlessly

We ship all SOMs with a hardware specific, full Board Support Package.



Simplified for you to get started faster. We make every effort to ensure robust feature sets, high quality and reliability.


Embedded Linux

Our go-to-software
to power our SOMs is Embedded Linux.
