Click here to learn more about our Universal SMARC Carrier board.

Our customers asked for a high performance, robust SoM that simplifies their BOM, has reliable connectivity, uses a standard form factor, and is globally certified. One with multiple software options, a proven security architecture, long term software support, and security fixes. 

Our new Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC is powered by NXP’s class-leading i.MX 8M Mini processor, NXP PMIC PF8121, and our Sona WiFi 6/6E and Bluetooth 5.3/5.4 wireless module families based on leading NXP and Infineon solutions, high performance LPDDR4 RAM, and eMMC storage. We combine this with our common SMARC carrier board; together they can serve as a single board computer (SBC) that can speed your product to market. Alternately, work with us to create a custom carrier that fits your mechanical, environmental, temperature, and interface requirements. 

  • Powerful Heterogenous Multiprocessing: Up to 1.8 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 microprocessor and 400 MHz Cortex-M4 microcontroller allow you to run Linux and an RTOS on dedicated, hardware-firewalled subsystems.
  • Diversity of Interfaces: Display, network, data, audio and camera interfaces.
  • SMARC 2.1.1 Standard Form Factor: 82mm x 50mm SMARC edge connector form factor which includes onboard ethernet PHY and a USB hub controller. One design supports multiple processor, memory, and wireless configurations. 
  • Hardware Upgrade Roadmap: Build a product design that can easily be upgraded to the latest processors and wireless options as future Laird Connectivity SOMs based on the SMARC standard are released. 
  • Advanced Common Carrier/Development Board: Display, camera, audio, Ethernet, USB, PCI-Express, I2C, SPI, UART, and more. Use in development, as an SBC equivalent in a product, or as reference designs for your carrier board design.
