Recommended for New Design (RND)


Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC is the latest in our line of i.MX based Nitrogen platforms, leveraging the i.MX 8M Plus processors from NXP and compatible with the SMARC 2.1.1 standard. The Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC is an integrated platform solution with Quad Cortex®-A53 processors operating up to 1.8 GHz and pre-certified dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac WLAN plus dual-mode Bluetooth® 5.2 Low Energy module. Quad Arm® Cortex®-A53 processors are integrated with an NPU of 2.3 TOPS that greatly accelerates machine learning inference. The vision engine is composed of two MIPI-CSI camera inputs and an HDR-capable Image Signal Processor (ISP) capable of 375 MPixels/s. The Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC has several product SKUs providing different eMMC and LPDDR4 memory configurations.
