NXP’s latest quad-core applications processor for secure, affordable
and intelligent edge computing has landed. Built on the success of the popular
i.MX 8M Mini applications processor, it provides a pin-compatible offering
that gives you even more choices for your next product design.
Affordable quad-core processing, with bonus Arm®
Quad-core processing is the new normal for intelligent, embedded processing.
Do you want to add cost-effective voice support to your already feature-rich
platform? You’ll need quad-core processing. Are you adding intelligence
to your product? You’ll likely need quad-core processing for that too.
Good thing that the i.MX 8M Nano provides up to four Cortex-A53 cores running
up to 1.5 GHz per core; that’s enough headroom for any embedded
application. Not sure today what your product might need? Then you have
pin-compatible options in a single package. You can start with a single- or
dual-core Cortex-A53 today and upgrade to a quad-core when you need it.
We’ve also added a bonus fast Cortex-M7 core on all devices to help you
integrate more of your system functionality into a smaller footprint. The
Cortex-M7 can implement low-power wake word detection, connect to sensors for
low-power environmental sensing or even run application specific libraries
that require real-time operation (for example, Class B libraries for appliances).
Hardware IP allows both cores to securely communicate and allocate peripherals
to either core type for optimal system partitioning and performance.
Feature-packed, system optimized.
The i.MX 8M Nano comes with an integrated 3D GPU that supports the latest
OpenGL® ES 3.1 and Vulkan® application
programming interfaces (APIs). As you look toward building more advanced user
interfaces with rich graphics, you’ll need the performance and power
efficiency of hardware accelerated graphics. The device is also packed with
advanced multi-channel audio capabilities including hardware asynchronous
sample rate conversion which means you don’t need to load the Arm cores
as you support audio applications. We’ve also provided a wide array of
high-speed interfaces such as USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet and SDIO for adding
Wi-Fi and/or Bluetooth connectivity to your product. NXP provides proven
reference designs that enable multiple memory types, Wi-Fi/BT enabled
out-of-the-box and Linux and Android board support packages to get you started
fast. Everything you need to get started is available today.
