Also containing the Vivante GC7000Lite GPU, and as the first i.MX processor to feature the Tensilica HiFi 4 DSP, it can deliver amazing user-interface sophistication and speed for industrial applications. Users get the choice of PCIe Gen 3 or IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi, while the optional DDR-RAM Error-Correcting Code support makes this the first SIL-3 safety-certifiable i.MX device creating a solid platform for safety-critical industrial automation and equipment such as robots and drones.
Three new boards unleash the power of three key processors in the series: the i.MX 8X, i.MX 8M and i.MX 8M Mini. Generous LPDDR4 RAM, state-of-the-art display interfaces, 4K video, 1Gb Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi, and up to PCIe Gen 3 and USB3.0, give developers flexible options to target specific application opportunities. Perfect for applications such as digital signage and high-speed industrial vision inspection, as well as consumer media-streaming devices, the VPU provides up to 4Kp60 Ultra-HD video playback (HEVC/H.265) and multimedia support including MPEG4, and DIVX. The boards come with Linux and Android support, and FreeRTOS for the Cortex-M4F will follow.
