New NXP i.MX 93-based system-on-modules launched by MYiR, Variscite, and Compulab

We have covered announcements about early NXP i.MX 93-based system-on-modules such as the ADLINK OSM-IMX93 and Ka-Ro Electronics’ QS93, as well as products integrating the higher-end NXP i.MX 95 processor such as the Toradex Titan Evaluation kit. Three additional NXP i.MX 93 SoMs from Variscite, Dart, and Compulab are now available.

Targeted at industrial, IoT, and automotive applications, the NXP i.MX 93 features a 64-bit dual-core Arm Cortex-A55 application processor running at up to 1.7GHz and a Cortex-M33 co-processor running at up to 250MHz. It integrates an Arm Ethos-U65 microNPU, providing up to 0.5TOPS of computing power, and supports EdgeLock secure enclave, NXP’s hardware-based security subsystem. The heterogeneous multicore processing architecture allows the device to run Linux on the main core and a real-time operating system on the Cortex-M33 core.

The processor is designed for cost-effective and energy-efficient machine learning applications. It supports LVDS, MIPI-DS, and parallel RGB display protocols for industrial and non-industrial uses. It is also compatible with Linux, FreeRTOS, Greenhills, QNX, and VxWorks.

MYIR Tech’s MYC-LMX9X system-on-module is one of the most compact NXP i.MX 93 modules, at only 37mm by 39mm. It comes with 1 or 2GB LPDDR4 RAM, 8GB of eMMC storage, 32Kbit EEPROM, and an onboard power management IC (PMIC). The 218-pin expansion interface offers several connectivity options, including 2x USB 2.0, 3x SD/SDIO 3.01, 2x Gigabit Ethernet, and 2x CAN-FD interfaces.

The MYC-LMX9X is bound for applications in sectors such as healthcare equipment, human-machine interfaces, motion control, EV charging stations, and engineering machinery. It supports the Linux 6.1 operating system. The system-on-module is currently available in two SKUs on MYIR’s website, priced at $43 and $49 respectively. The development board comes with a USB to TTL cable, a 12V/2A Power adapter, and a quick start guide, and is available for $105 and $115.

DART-MX93 “DART Pin2Pin” System-on-Module

Variscite’s DART-MX93 is the newest addition to its DART Pin2Pin family. It is described as a “rugged, cost-optimized solution for machine learning on edge devices for markets like industrial, IoT, smart devices, and wearables.” Carrier boards can be reused for all members of the DART Pin2Pin family, offering future-proofing and seamless scalability.

It measures 55 x 30mm – about half the size of a bank card –  and integrates 2x camera interfaces (CSI2, ISI), 2x CAN bus, 2x GbE, audio in/out, 2x USB, Wi-Fi 6 dual-band 802.11 ax/ac/a/b/g/n with optional 802.15.4 and BT/BLE 5.3, in the industrial temperature grade of -40 to 85𝆩C. It supports Linux, Android, and FreeRTOS operating systems.

Compulab’s MCM-iMX93 system-on-module comes in a solderable QFN form factor and is the smallest module in this list, measuring only 30 x 30 x 3 mm and weighing 5g. The SoM’s compact form factor makes it suitable for portable and space-tight applications. It is also designed to be resistant to shocks and vibrations.

It offers up to 2GB LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB eMMC flash. It features 2x GbE ports, three display interfaces (DSI, LVDS, and RGB), an externally powered real-time clock, 2x SD/SDIO, 2x CAN, 2x USB 2.0, 8x UART, 4x ADC, 6x PWM, and up to 80x GPIO. It runs Yocto Linux, Debian Linux, and RTOS, and supports over-the-air updates via Mender.

For the DART-MX93, any idea what size the B2B connectors on the underside are and how far apart they’re spaced?

The product page does not have any information, but it should be the same as the DART-MX8M which has three 90-pin B2B connectors.

Yeah I took a look and couldn’t see anything in the specs, not even in the mechanical section!
Thanks, pity it’s not 3 x 200-pin like the compute modules…
