Arm Cortex-A55/-M33

The module based on the i.MX 93 processor from NXP offers high computing power with low energy consumption. Measuring only 36 mm x 36 mm, equipped with an Arm® Ethos™-U65 microNPU and based on NXP's innovative Energy Flex architecture, the module enables the development of powerful, cost-effective and energy-efficient ML applications, e.g. for IoT applications.

The fully industrial-grade phyCORE-i.MX 93 SOM is characterized by its price-optimized bill of material. Thanks to Direct Solder Connect technology, the module is suitable for large-scale production and the manufacturing costs of the end application are significantly reduced.

The pin compatibility with the phyCORE-STM32MP13x and phyCORE-i.MX 6UL enables the development of scalable applications in terms of price/performance ratio.
