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

Our new Nitrogen8ULP SOM is powered by the next generation low power NXP i.MX 8ULP processor and it’s specifically designed NXP PMIC PCA9460A. It features power efficient LPDDR4 RAM and eMMC storage. We combine this with a specifically designed carrier board; together they 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. Low Power Heterogenous Multiprocessing: Up to 800 MHz dual-core Cortex-A35, ARM’s lowest power 64-bit microprocessor architecture, and 216 MHz Cortex-M33 microcontroller allow you to run Linux and an RTOS on dedicated, hardware-firewalled subsystems. Power Efficient: µPower management subsystem in the i.MX 8ULP, delivering 20 different power modes, combines with an NXP PMIC, power optimized LPDDR4 and eMMC memory to optimize core shut off, clock/voltage scaling, low power interfaces, and more to enable highly optimized power consumption.

How do I set the bootloader back to its default configuration?

The command "env erase" will restore defaults when executed in the bootloader.

How do I configure my network connection?

NMCLI should be utilized to configure network interfaces.
