The VisionSOM-8Mmini family is a SODIMM-sized SoM based on the NXP iMX8Mmini application processor which features a heterogeneous quad cores ARM Cortex-A53 together with an ARM Cortex-M4 core  as well as an advanced 3D Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) Open GL 2.0 ES compatible and VPU (encoder/decoder) HD1080p60 H.264, HD1080p60 H.265.

The quad Cortex-A53 and single Cortex-M4 based VisionSOM provides full flexibility to support real time application while supporting Linux and advanced HMI.

The VisionSOM-8Mmini is a general-purpose highly integrated SoM (System on Module). The module is featuring high computation power. The option is fully certified Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and Bluetooth (BLE 5.1) module. This module simplifies the carrier board design and is ideally suited for wireless application. The VisionSOM-8Mmini provides a variety memory configuration, including flexible range of LPDDR4, eMMC and SD memory card.

The VisionSOM-8Mmini supports connections to a variety of interfaces:

  • two high-speed USB on-the-go with PHY,
  • 1Gbit Ethernet,
  • audio,
  • advanced Full HD display with 3D coprocessing and VPU encoder/decoder,
  • touch panel and serial interfaces.

In addition, the system supports industrial grade embedded applications.
