MSC SM2S-IMX8MINI

NXP™ i.MX 8M Mini ARM® Cortex™-A53

The MSC SM2S-IMX8MINI module features NXP’s i.MX 8M Mini processors that are based on latest 14nm FinFET technology to allow high computing and graphics performance at very low power consumption combined with a high degree of functional integration.

MSC SM2S-IMX8MINI offers single-, dual- or quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processors in combination with the ARM Cortex-M4 real-time processor and GC NanoUltra multimedia 2D/3D GPU. It provides fast LPDDR4 memory, up to 64GB eMMC Flash memory, Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express, USB 2.0, an on-board Wireless Module as well as an extensive set of interfaces for embedded applications.

The module is compliant with the new SMARC™ 2.0 standard, allowing easy integration with SMARC baseboards. For evaluation and design-in of the SM2S-IMX8MINI module, MSC provides a development platform and a starter kit. Support for Linux is available (Android support on request).
