Modular Hardware

The Emcraft i.MX 8M Mini System-On-Module (SOM) is a miniature module (50mm x 50mm) that combines the NXP i.MX 8M Mini multi-core application processor with 1 - 4GB LPDDR4, 4 - 64GB eMMC and a WiFi / BT module on a single board. It features up to four Cortex-A53 processor cores running at 2GHz and a Cortex-M4 core at 400MHz for low-power and real-time operation, with 1080p video encode and decode, 2D and 3D graphics, display and camera interfaces, multi-channel audio and advanced I/O connectivity.

Take a look inside

Rethink what to expect from a development platform

The 3D Development Kit offers a variety of features combined with powerful processing power.

  • Integrated 3D viewing & processing
  • Including memory, HDMI, USB and MIPI interconnects
  • Choose from two different pmd ToF Modules with different FOVs
  • Economic integration into an end-system, with plenty of memory and processing overhead
  • Powerful 3D Software Development Kit "Royale" integrated
  • No PC is required – just plug in a keyboard and monitor, and start developing
