Torax provides support for its own TorizonCore IoT Linux distribution, Yocto Project for custom Linux image development, and Android. FreeRTOS is also coming soon for the Cortex-M4 real-time core. The company also offers a range of carrier boards to get started. You’ll find those along with preliminary software documentation on the developer’s website.
The Toradex Verdin AM62 SoM targets industrial automation, healthcare, Smart City, transportation, and test & measurement applications, and was designed after Toradex received input from their customer who wanted a lower power and lower cost SoM compatible with NXP i.MX 8M Mini and NXP i.MX 8M Plus Verdin system-on-modules.
Verdin AM62 samples are available to early-access customers and will also offer long-term availability until at least the year 2033. Further details may be found on the product page.
