Taiwan based Innocomm Mobile Technology has been working on their own NXP i.MX 8M quad core system-on-module – namely WB10 – which includes a wireless module with WiFi and Bluetooth, as well as a Gigabit Ethernet transceiver.
The module connects to the carrier board through three 80-pin board-to-board connectors exposing many of the I/Os provided by the latest NXP processor.
- SoC – NXP i.MX8M Quad processor with 4x Cortex A53 cores, 1x Cortex-M4F core, and a Vivante GC7000Lite GPU
- System Memory – 2GB LPDDR4-3200
- Storage – 8GB eMMC flash
- Gigabit Ethernet transceiver
- Wireless module supporting 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2×2 MIMO WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, two u.FL antenna connectors on-module
- Power Management & Audio Codec – ROHM PMIC
- 3x 80-pin board-to- board (1.27mm pitch) connectors exposing:
- Display Interfaces – HDMI 2.0a with support for 4K HDR, MIPI DSI
- Audio Interfaces – 4x SAI, S/PDIF Rx/Tx, DSD512
- Camera Interfaces – 2x CSI
- USB – USB 2.0/3.0 host, USB 2.0 device
- 2x I2C, 1x SPI, 3x UART, PWM
- Supply Voltage – 5V DC
- Dimensions – 50 x 50mm
No word about software support, but we should expect the usual Android and Linux BSPs. The company also provides a development kit with the module and a baseboard with Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI port, USB type C port, mini PCIe slot, 40-pin I/Os header, and likely more, but I just don’t know since the only public information is the photo below.
It’s unclear whether the module and development kits are available now, but you can request a quotation via the product page or inquire for more details.
