MSC SM2S-IMX93

NXP® i.MX 93 Arm®
Cortex®-A55 / M33

The MSC SM2S-IMX93 SMARC 2.1.1 module family is highly scalable and equipped with i.MX 93 Applications Processors manufactured by NXP. The processors integrate Arm Cortex-A55 cores, bringing performance and energy efficiency to Linux-based edge applications and the Arm Ethos-U65 microNPU, enabling developers to create more capable, cost-effective and energy-efficient machine learning (ML) applications. The i.MX 93 processors deliver advanced security with integrated EdgeLock secure enclave and an efficient pixel pipeline to perform 2D graphics processing to realize cost-effective GUI solutions.

The MSC SM2S-IMX93 provides fast and low power LPDDR4 memory technology with inline ECC support, combined with up to 256GB eMMC Flash memory. Various interfaces for embedded applications such as Dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, CAN-FD, single-channel LVDS or MIPI DSI and MIPI CSI for connecting a camera are available. An on-board Wireless Module is provided as assembly options. The typical design power ranges from 2 W to 4 W.

The module is compliant with the new SMARC 2.1.1 standard, allowing easy integration with SMARC baseboards. For evaluation and design-in of the SM2S-IMX93 module, Avnet Embedded provides a development platform and a starter kit. Support for Linux is available (Android support available on request).
