NXP i.MX 8M Mini family

NXP i.MX 8M Mini family - Arm® Cortex®-A53, Cortex-M4, audio, voice, video

The i.MX 8M Mini is NXP’s first embedded multi-core heterogeneous applications processors built using advanced 14LPC FinFET process technology. The i.MX 8M Mini family of processors brings together high-performance computing, power efficiency, enhanced system reliability and embedded security needed to drive the growth of fast-growing edge node computing, streaming multimedia, and machine learning applications.

At the heart is a scalable core complex of up to four Arm Cortex-A53 cores running up to 2GHz plus Cortex-M4 based real-time processing domain at 400+MHz. i.MX 8M Mini core options are optimized for low-power but offer the breadth of processing power necessary for consumer, audio, industrial, machine learning training and inferencing across a range of cloud providers.

The i.MX 8M Mini also packs-in hardware 1080p video acceleration to enable two-way video applications, 2D and 3D graphics to provide a rich visual HMI experience, and advanced audio capabilities to enable audio-rich applications. An extensive selection of high-speed interfaces enabling broader system connectivity, and targeting industrial level qualification, the i.MX 8M Mini family may be used in any general embedded consumer and industrial application.
