The Apalis iMX8 is a small form-factor System on Module based on a SoC from the latest NXP® i.MX 8 family of SoCs. The most performant i.MX 8 SoC, the i.MX 8QuadMax, features 2x Cortex-A72 and 4x Cortex-A53 application processor cores, and 2x additional Cortex-M4F - which also include a FPU - microcontroller cores. The integrated high-performance dual GC7000 3D GPU supports Open GL ES 3.1 and Vulkan on up to 4x 1080p or one 4K display. The Cortex M4 microcontroller cores can be used to support real-time applications or stay connected while the main Cortex-A72/A53 cores are turned off.
The Apalis iMX8 is pin-compatible with the other SoMs in the Apalis family. This allows existing Apalis-based products to easily scale and migrate to the new Apalis iMX8. The i.MX 8 SoCs are based on a 28nm advanced FDSOI silicon process to increase MTBF and decrease soft error rates. The Apalis iMX8 SoM is ideal for building cutting-edge computer vision systems. The high-performance dual GC7000 GPU supports feature-rich, complex Graphical User Interfaces with multiple independent displays.
