40 mm x 37 mm

ARM Cortex-A53 / -M4

  • Multimedia encoder - video, graphics, audio

    The i.MX 8M Mini encodes videos and converts camera raw data into a transferable format. i.MX 8M Mini is the performance-oriented multimedia professional, i.MX 8M Nano has slimmer multimedia properties and is cheaper.

  • Scalable performance across the entire i.MX 8 family

    Under Yocto, PHYTEC maintains the same software infrastructure for all derivatives of the entire i.MX 8 family.

  • Hard real-time and convenient application

    The Cortex-A53 processor handles application tasks comfortably with the support of an operating system. The Cortex-M4 controller takes on deterministic tasks with real-time requirements.

  • High performance with low power consumption

    Simpler cooling concepts thanks to the favorable mips per watt ratio of the Advanced 14LPC FinFET process technology.

  • High vibration and shock resistance

    Tested according to DIN EN 60068-2-6, DIN EN 60068-2-64 and DIN EN 60068-2-27.
