Small in size, big on performance: First single-board computer of the flexible i.MX8M series

DATA MODUL announces a new modular embedded board family, equipped with the latest i.MX8M processor series and based on the standard Pico ITX 72x100mm form factor. The new NXP i.MX8Mmini and its scalability from single-core to quad-core means that the processor has greater processing power, with less power dissipation compared to its predecessor, the i.MX6.

Easy integration and flexible use

The eDM-SBC-iMX8Mmini makes its appearance as the first single-board computer in this new modular series. Through a mezzanine module, a full range of graphic interfaces – such as flexible panel interfaces (LVDS / RGB / eDP / MIPI DSI) and monitor interfaces (HDMI / DP / DVI) – are enabled. All modular aspects of the board can be customised or adapted to suit individual customer requirements, thus ensuring simple integration and flexible use.

The cost effective design of our first board in the new i.MX8M series can be operated with virtually any panel, by means of its unique mezzanine module. The entire panel and touch portfolio from DATA MODUL is thus available to the customer for system integration. This means we can offer our customers maximum flexibility for all intelligent, individual and demanding HMI applications,” explained Richard Pinnow, Head of Product Management for Embedded Solutions at DATA MODUL.

The eDM-SBC-iMX8Mmini is equipped with a 12/24 volt input as standard, but can also be powered with just 5V using a USB 2.0 Micro-B connection, like any USB device. The input of 12/24 volts can also be used as the backlight voltage source for a display, which enables a single supply for the system.

Available for both the commercial sector and industry

Due to its small size, the new board can even be used in panel PCs with a small diagonal of up to 5 inches. Moreover, with the help of the integrated standard M.2 socket, the customer can choose between WLAN/BT and mobile communication (e.g. LTE).

Although the eDM-SBC-iMX8Mmini was designed as a cost effective version for the commercial sector, it is also available for the industry-compatible wider temperature range from -40°C to +85°C.
