The processors are intended to provides support for demanding video, graphic, and audio system requirements for smart home and smart IoT applications.
The NXP i.MX 8M processors are powered by a general-purpose Arm Cortex-M4F core, a GC7000Lite graphics processor, and either two (i.MX 8M Dual processors) or four (i.MX 8M Quad and QuadLite processors) Arm Cortex-A53 cores running at up to 1.5 GHz.
The i.MX 8M Quad and i.MX 8M Dual processors have hardware acceleration for video playback up to 4K and video decoding in h.265, h.264 and VP9. The Dual and Quad processors support 32-bit audio samples with up a sampling rate to 768 kHz. The i.MX 8M QuadLite processor allows for video playback with software decoders if needed.
NXP’s i.MX 8M processors are supported by the i.MX 8MQuad Evaluation Kit, which provides several memory options, a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, USB 3.0 connectors, and PCIe high-speed interfaces.
