NXP® i.MX 8X Computer on Module
Up to four Cortex-A35 applications cores — the most power-efficient application Arm processor to support 32- and 64-bit code execution.
ECC (Error Correction Code) DDR RAM and CPU caches increase the reliability and lower the risk of bit errors. This leads to a more reliable system and helps to meet the industrial Safety Integrity Level (SIL) certification for critical industrial applications, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs).
Support for hardware virtualization, Secure Boot, and the latest cryptography ensures that you can build a safe and secure system. The i.MX 8X SoCs are based on an advanced 28 nm FDSOI silicon process to increase MTBF and decrease soft error rates.
The heterogeneous multicore architecture allows the offloading of critical hard real-time tasks to the Cortex M4 or M7 processors for extremely low latency. Toradex provides tooling and FreeRTOS to simplify development. You can also use the asymmetric multicore architecture for a connected low power mode or to increase security.
Simplify your design with pre-certified wireless options, counting from the module to the antennas, to increase the predictability of end-device certification processes while enabling significant cost savings. The latest 802.11ac standard and support for multi-antenna setups contribute to a great out-of-the-box end-user experience. These are paired with Bluetooth 5 support to offer state-of-the-art integration for Bluetooth devices.
Each module comes with environmental test reports for vibration and EMI/EMC to give you peace of mind. These modules are built with highly reliable eMMC flash memory, and tools like the Toradex Flash Analytics tool allow you to monitor flash wear in a simple manner.
The Apalis iMX8X is pin-compatible with the other CoMs in the Apalis family. This allows existing Apalis-based products to easily scale and migrate to the new Apalis iMX8X. All of Toradex's Apalis Carrier Boards are compatible with the Apalis iMX8X. Extensive product documentation, developer support, service partners and third-party carrier boards build our strong Apalis ecosystem.
Toradex offers free support and maintenance for embedded Linux and FreeRTOS on the NXP i.MX 8X-based Apalis iMX8X SoMs. This allows system designers to focus on the application only, instead of focusing also on the OS and low-level device drivers. Other OSs, such as Android and QNX, are supported by our partners.
To get your product to market fast, with low risk and low engineering costs, you need more than just a System on Module with a stable operating system or BSP. We understand this, which is why we at Toradex are collaborating with a wide range of partners to make your life easier. Here are a few highlights. To find more, browse our Developer Page and take a look at our Partner Network.
