Avnet Introduces High Performance SM2S-IMX95 SMARC Module

Powered by latest NXP i.MX 95 Applications Processor

Nuremberg, Germany – April 4, 2024 — Avnet (Nasdaq: AVT) launches a new SMARC module family based on NXP’s new i.MX 95 Applications Processor. The MSC SM2S-IMX95 SMARC module family is based on the new SMARC 2.1.1 standard allowing easy integration with SMARC baseboards.

The i.MX 95 family from NXP combines multi-core high performance compute and immersive 3D graphics. It is also the first i.MX Applications Processor family to integrate NXP’s elQ* Neutron neural processing unit (NPU) and a new image signal processor (ISP) developed by NXP, helping developers to build powerful, next generation edge platforms.

“The new SMARC module family is ideal for applications that require a small form factor compute platform with high performance, graphics, video and AI capabilities and rich I/O feature set,” said Thomas Staudinger, president, Avnet Embedded. “These applications include industrial, medical platforms, smart home and building (with vision and high-speed networking), industrial transport and grid infrastructure.”

Module features:

  • Hexa core Arm Cortex-A55 up to 2.0GHz combined with Arm Cortex-M7 and M33 real time cores
  • Arm Mali* GPU, 4K capable VPU and Edgelock* secure enclave security
  • Up to 16GB fast LPDDR5 with inline ECC and up to 256Gb eMMC Flash
  • LVDS, MIPI-DSI and HDIM interface options
  • High speed PCIe Gen. 3, USB 3.0 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
  • Compatibility with previous i.MX 8 and i.MX 9 generations
  • Reliable long-life (NXP 15-year availability program)
  • Full industrial temperature range and use conditions
