The SMARC-iMX8MP enables system integrators and manufacturers to create and deploy advanced and power-efficient solutions at the edge. It provides high performance and processing speed, while keeping the power consumption to a minimum.
Based on NXP i.MX8M Plus quad and dual cores, the SMARC-iMX8MP carries quad/dual 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A53 and 800MHz real-time Cortex-M7 co-processor. The built-in NPU (up to 2.3TOPs) provides customers the option to perform machine learning inference directly on the edge, reducing cloud dependency, latency and is able to perform highly complex neural network functions like face and emotion detection, object detection and surveillance, which are key to applications such as smart and safe cities, retail, smart home and much more.
Featuring additional high-speed interfaces such as 2 x Gigabit Ethernet (one with TSN), PCIe Gen 3, USB 3.0, LVDS, HDMI, MIPI-DSI and CAN-FD capabilities, offering industrial temperature grade and NXP's longevity program, the i.MX8M Plus SMARC 2.0 module is perfect for industrial IoT and HMI applications.
