Overview

phyCORE®-i.MX 8M Plus - Announcement!

ARM CortexTM-A53/-M7

phyCORE-i.MX 8M Plus, the most intelligent module in the PHYTEC i.MX 8 module series. With the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Plus, PHYTEC will now support the newest member of the i.MX 8 controller family from NXP. The module will be available at the release date of NXP in Q1/2021. It will be specifically designed for the special features of the i.MX 8M Plus processor and will support these with the quality you have come to expect from PHYTEC.

This particularly powerful module will enable the optimal implementation of complex applications such as machine learning, image processing, advanced multimedia, and industrial IoT solutions.


Highlights:

  • Neural Processing Unit
  • 2x Image Signal Processor + 2x MIPI CSI-2
  • HiFi Audio DSP
  • 2x LVDS, MIPI DSI-2, HDMI
  • Real-time control with Cortex-M7
  • 2x GB Ethernet with TSN, 2x CAN FD, 2x USB3.0
  • High reliability (DRAM inline ECC, ECC on on-chip RAM)
