VAR-SOM-MX8 :
NXP iMX8

Coming Soon

The VAR-SOM-MX8 is a pin2pin System-on-Module with the VAR-SOM-MX6 and VAR-SOM-SOLO/DUAL. Allowing Variscite customers to use the same system design with full scalability, from entry level – i.MX6 Solo and Dual lite, through to i.MX6 Dual, Quad and QuadPlus, right up to i.MX8 QuadMax.

The VAR-SOM-MX8 introduces advanced processing power, high-end graphics, UltraHD video capabilities and a variety of high-speed interfaces and connectivity options.

Based on NXP i.MX 8QuadMax, the VAR-SOM-MX8 carries Dual 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A72, Quad 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 and 2x 266MHz real-time Cortex-M4F co-processor. An impressive multimedia performance spec encompasses UltraHD 4K video and display support, high-quality audio, a high performance 2D/3D graphics acceleration and camera inputs.

The SoM includes a variety of interfaces and connectivity options: Certified dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac/a/b/g/n, BT/BLE, dual GbE, dual USB3, PCIe, SATA III, CAN, SPI and UART.

**Variscite VAR-SOM-MX8 SoM is in development at this stage and as such the information on this page is subject to change without further notice.
