The module runs on a 1.7GHz Dual Cortex™-A55 NXP iMX93 processor and 250MHz Cortex-M33 real-time processor. It offers a dedicated NPU (Neural Processing Unit) 0.5 TOPS, built-in security features and an energy flex architecture.


The VAR-SOM-MX93 is compatible with the VAR-SOM Pin2Pin System on Module family, providing our customers with the ultimate scalability level along with an extended lifetime, reduced development time, costs, and risks. The pin2pin family includes a wide range of performances starting from the entry point i.MX6UL modules, through the iMX6 and i.MX 8M families, up to the high-performance i.MX 8X and i.MX 8QuadMax modules.


The SoM provides industrial features like dual GbE, dual CAN bus and industrial temperature grade, along with a rich set of connectivity options and features: camera inputs, dual USB, audio in/out, ADC, certified single or dual-band Wi-Fi, BT/BLE, and display outputs.

“As a company dedicated to being first to market with innovative solutions, Variscite is proud to release the VAR-SOM-MX93, which provides our customers with a high-quality, future-proof System on Module that meets the market’s demand for energy-efficiency platform, especially for smart devices at the edge,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “This next generation of technology extends the coverage of Variscite solutions for the embedded market.”
