armStone MX8MP

SBC with i.MX8M PLUS processor

NXP's i.MX 8MP multimedia CPU (4x ARM® Cortex®-A53 (64-bit) with 1.8GHz & Cortex®-M7 CPU) is ideally suited for applications with demanding graphics in building automation as well as in industrial and medical technology.

This powerful module in the PicoITX form factor is particularly suitable for complex multimedia tasks and is ideal for applications with demanding graphics in building automation, for all types of HMI in industry and medical technology, as well as POS and POI terminals.

Numerous Interfaces

The armStone™MX8MP is equipped with up to 8GByte LPDDR4 RAM and as mass storage eMMC

Other interfaces of the armStone™MX8MP are WLAN (802.11 ac/a/b/g/n (2.4/ 5GHz)), BT (5.0 LE), 2x Gigabit Ethernet, SD card, USB 3.0 + 4x USB host, 2x CAN, 4x serial, 4x I²C, 2x SPI, 4x ADC, 3x PWM, Audio Codec, MIPI-CSI camera and PCIe with SIM card slot.

LVDS (24bit), DVI and MIPI-DSI are available for display control.

A special feature is the Neural Processing unit (NPU) for machine learning with 2.3 TOPS. Various security functions as well as OTA (Over-The-Air Update) are available and are made available by the Linux adaptation of F&S Elektronik Systeme.

As with all armStone™ single board computers, many of the signals are on common connectors or on the 66-pin feature bus. The armStone™MX8MP is powered by 5V (a 12/24V adapter is offered as an accessory), and power consumption is only a few watts. With a temperature range of up to -20°C - +70°C and -25°C - +85°C in the I-Temp. version, the armStone™MX8MP can also be used outdoors. For heat dissipation, F&S offers a heat spreader. It can be used as a connection point for cooling elements.

  • Linux Yocto
  • An adapted Linux Yocto is available as an operating system. Bootloader, device tree, adapted interface drivers and all tools necessary for development are available.
  • Various security functions are available and are made available by the Linux adaptation of F&S Elektronik Systeme.
  • With the F&S project guarantee, F&S Elektronik Systeme accompanies the customer from the project start to the successful completion of the project.

For this purpose, a starter kit and workshop, documents for hardware and software development, and free support by the experienced engineers of F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH are available.
