True integrated eCockpits for cars, multi-camera monitoring in industrial systems, and multi-domain systems requiring both open access and safety/security are transforming the way we interact. To operate these complex systems, we need multiple high definition displays, running multiple operating systems, enabled with new seamless HMI, with safety systems such as application sand-boxing. The NXP i.MX 8QuadMax and i.MX 8QuadPlus product lines offer the potential to deliver all these features in one processor.
With the i.MX 8 family of processors using the Arm® Cortex® A72 and Cortex A-53 and Cortex-M4F cores, along with the Tensilica® HiFi 4 DSP use cases can be endless to showcase compute power, machine learning, object detection and AI applications. In addition, with a dedicated HSM module on chip for security protection, NXP continues to drive solutions to meet security needs across a broad range of applications including automotive and industrial industries.
Sometimes our customers say it best. “We have been working with NXP’s silicon early-on since we understood the potential of the i.MX 8QuadMax to forge a clear path of innovation in the connected car market. We are an extremely technology-driven company and NXP’s i.MX 8QuadMax is a perfect complement to our future vision for infotainment systems.” Francesco Ortix, chief executive officer ART.
As the requirements and capabilities expand, so can the complexity of getting your product to market. To help with this, NXP delivers the SoC, AND puts an ecosystem of partners in place, to enable a wider range of customers to help develop faster with the i.MX 8QuadMax processor.
NXP and our embedded board system partners are gearing up to enable a more streamlined development process and faster time to production of these solutions.
Today, we are announcing a select group of early-access partners that NXP has been working with to develop an active worldwide ecosystem for the i.MX 8QuadMax processor. Customers are encouraged to engage immediately to leverage the expertise of all these partners; below is a summary of how they describe their development plans:
The Advantech ROM-7720 QSeven module supports 4K hardware acceleration for video decoding and additional GPU for image processing. This makes it ideal for AI, Machine Vision and big data processing applications. For more details and to buy a development kit, click here.
The congatec SMARC module with the NXP i.MX 8 Quad Max processor offers excellent processing and graphics performance for outdoor and mobile vehicle applications as well as in industrial IoT and Industry 4.0 devices, machines and systems. Start with the evaluation kit for a fast design-in.
iWave’s i.MX8QM/QP SMARC 2.0 compatible SOM integrates up to 8GB LPDDR4, 128GB eMMC Flash, Dual 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet, USB3.0 HUB, 802.11ac/ax Wi-Fi and BLE5.0. It is aimed to offer maximum performance with higher graphic capability for complex and high-performance computing applications.
Comprehensive multi-media interfaces and highest computing performance make the phyCORE-i.MX 8QM from Phytec an ideal System on Module for graphics, imaging and security applications. Thanks to 64-bit LPDDR4 RAM support even large amounts of data can be processed quickly and efficiently.
Toradex adds a new Apalis SoM based on NXP® i.MX 8QuadMax applications processor to its Apalis SoM family. The module includes Torizon the easy-to-use industrial Linux Platform, an extensive integrated software ecosystem, wireless connectivity, and long-term support.
Variscite’s VAR-SOM-MX8 introduces advanced processing capabilities, high-end graphics and UltraHD 4K video while maintaining Pin-compatibility with fully scalable System-on-Module range: From i.MX6ULL up to i.MX8QM.
