It’s raining i.MX 8M Plus systems-on-module at Embedded World 2021

i.MX 8M Plus Systems-on-Module

NXP introduced i.MX 8M Plus AI SoC with a built-in 2.3 TOPS neural processing unit (NPU) last year, and we’ve already covered several early announcements about i.MX 8M Plus systems-on-module (SoM) with Variscite VAR-SOM-MX8M-PLUS and DART-MX8M-PLUS, TechNexion EDM-G-IMX8M-PLUS and AXON-E-IMX8M-PLUS respectively using SO-DIMM edge connectors and board-to-board connectors, as well as SolidRun i.MX 8M Plus SoM that was announced together with the HummindBoard Mate carrier board with dual Gigabit Ethernet. But as Embedded World 2021 Digital is taking place virtually until Friday, other companies have now made their own announcements of i.MX 8M Plus SoMs as the processor enters mass production this month, and since as far as I know, it’s pin-to-pin and software compatible with earlier i.MX 8M Nano/Mini SoCs, the update must have been easy. That means we’ve got a longish list of modules, and I have probably missed some. Supported operating systems are basically the same across […]

Engicam PX30.Core SoM & devkit run Ubuntu 20.04 with mainline Linux

PX30 Ubuntu 20.04 mainline Linux

Linux 5.11 was released a few days ago, and it’s always interesting to check out the changelog to find new hardware platforms that support mainline Linux. One of those is Engicam PX30.Core SoM based on Rockchip PX30 quad-core Arm Cortex-A35 processor. Engicam also worked with Amarula Solutions to develop an Ubuntu 20.04 image with mainline Linux compatible with EDIMM 2.2 and CTouch 2.0 carrier boards for PX30.Core CPU module. Engicam PX30.Core SoM Specifications: SoC – RockChip PX30 quad-core Arm Cortex-A35 @ 1.2GHz with Mali-G31 MP2 GPU with support for OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0, and 3.2, OpenCL 2.0, Vulkan VX 1.0, 1080p60 video encoding/decoding System Memory – Up to 2 GB DDR4 Storage – 4GB eMMC flash (other capacities on request) Audio – Audio codec on module SO-DIMM edge connector Display Interfaces –  24-bit Parallel RGB, 18/24-bit LVDS Camera interface – 4-lane MIPI-CSI for up to 8MP camera Audio – I2S […]
