The PicoCore Computer On Module product family has a new member, based on the NXP i.MX 8M Mini ARM CPU, called PicoCoreMX8MM. The small size of 35 x 40mm only makes the module an ideal partner for compact housings. The module was designed for low power consumption and is very well suited for secure cloud connections. The i.MX 8M Mini is NXP’s first embedded multi-core heterogeneous applications processor.
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. 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. The PicoCore standard uses two plug connectors (Hirose DF40C) with 100 pins each. This results in compact size and low board-to-board distance.
