iMX8M Nano uCOM: Perfect trade-off between cost and performance for multimedia applications

This Embedded Artists application processor module is optimized for industrial control and multimedia applications, and comes with up to 4x A53 and 1x M7 cores.

Heterogeneous Multicore Processor (HMP) | Hardware accelerator for 3D graphics | 4x Cortex-A53 @ 1.5 GHz & Cortex-M7 @ 750 MHz


Advanced Multimedia

The iMX8M Nano uCOM Board features high-end graphic capabilities with both 3D and 2D GPUs. Video decoding and encoding can be done directly by the processor cores.

With MIPI DSI display output, MIPI CSI camera inputs, flexible audio interfaces and comprehensive communication features, the i.MX 8M Nano is ideal for multimedia applications.

Heterogeneous Multicore Processing (HMP)

The i.MX 8M Nano processor comes with up to 4x Cortex-A53 cores and one Cortex-M7 core. This combination of different cores allows a feature rich OS, like Linux, to run on the Cortex-A cores while a Real-Time OS such as FreeRTOS can run on the Cortex-M7 core.

Power Optimized Design

Combining the processor with DDR4 memory and Rohm’s efficient BD71847AMWV PMIC results in a very low power module. The HMP architecture can reduce the power even more by letting the Cortex-A53 cores sleep until needed. The Cortex-M7 can wake them up on demand.  Ultra compact form factor, 42×45 mm, using the proven Hirose DF40C connectors.

NXP Technology

The module is based on NXP’s energy efficient i.MX 8M Nano processor which has up to 4x Cortex-A53 cores capable at running up to 1.5 GHz and one Cortex-M7 core capable at running up to 750 MHz.

Temperature Range

The iMX8M Nano uCOM Board is available in industrial and commercial temperature ranges, -40 to +85 / 0 to 70 degrees Celsius, respectively. The industrial (temperature range) version is suitable for always-on applications.

Get a Developer's Kit

Use Embedded Artists’ Developer’s Kits as your evaluation/prototyping platform. The kit includes the hardware and software components needed to get up-and-running with your software development on day 1.

Crank Software Demos

Crank Software is a software and service-based company that have extensive GUI design and development experience. They have developed the tool Storyboard that lets you develop User Interfaces for your product.

Storyboard is a tool that makes it easier for you to develop a user interface (UI) for your product. It consists of two parts; Storyboard Designer which you use to develop the user interface and Storyboard Engine that runs your application.

Some of the features of Storyboard:
  • Decouples front-end UI from back-end logic
  • Data model and events API connects them together
  • Hardware agnostic framework – working across many platforms
  • Enables collaborative workflow for designers and developers

We have put together a number of demo images that can be run on the iMX6, iMX7 and iMX8 based COM boards. Contact us for more info!
