The NXP i.MX 8M Mini applications processors have been designed for ultra-low-power (sub-Watt in some applications) operation, and integrate up to four Arm Cortex-A53 cores at up to 1.8 GHz, and a 400 MHz Cortex-M4. The devices are able to offer a rich HMI experience through 2D and 3D graphics support as well as 1080p video acceleration and advanced audio capabilities.
The pin-compatible processors have a wide choice of high-speed interfaces and the DRAM controller supports 32-bit/16-bit LPDDR4, DDR4, and DDR3L memory, for system design flexibility.
The i.MX 8M Mini applications processors are supported by the 8MMINILPD4-EVK evaluation kit, which has a compact compute module and larger base board. The compute module integrates an i.MX 8M Mini Quad processor, PMIC, LPDDR4 DRAM, eMMC, and wireless connectivity via a Murata Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module. The compute module plugs into the base board, which enables the MIPI-DSI and MIPI-CSI connectors, USB 3.0 connector, and PCIe high-speed interfaces.
