A safety-focused System on Module

The Apalis iMX8X System on Module is available with a range of safety features, such as ECC RAM, as well as ECC L1 and L2 caches. An advanced, 28-nanometer FDSOI silicon process was chosen to build the SoC to increase MTBF and decrease soft error rates, which is crucial for critical applications. A Cortex-M4 core can be used to offload a critical application to a dedicated microcontroller running on bare metal or a safety-certifiable RTOS. The Cortex-A35 virtualization extension provides yet another option to partition the system.

High-efficiency Arm Cortex-A35 cores

The NXP i.MX 8X SoC, featuring two or four 64-bit Armv8 Cortex-A35 cores, provides state-of-the-art performance and extremely high efficiency. Many modern workloads can take advantage of the Armv8 architectures with additional instructions, more registers and an updated NEON and floating-point unit. To learn more about the Cortex-A35 and how it compares to the Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A53, see our blog post.

High-performance GPU, VPU and DSP for fluid graphics and accelerated computer vision

The 3D GPU supports OpenGL 3.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan® for high-performance graphical user interfaces. Toradex's close collaboration with Qt and Crank simplifies development and deployment to enable a beautiful user experience. Hardware-accelerated H.265 video playback allows for high-quality, bandwidth-optimized video. The GPUs can also act as powerful co-processors to accelerate vision and deep learning tasks via OpenCL 1.2 Full Profile.

The VPU enables hardware accelerated H.265 video playback on 4K resolution, high-quality and bandwidth optimized video. Other encoders and decoders are hardware-optimized, such as H.264, MPEG, JPEG and others.

In addition, a Tensilica HiFi4 DSP clocked at 640MHz enables highly optimized signal pre- and post-processing.

PCIe, USB 3.0, 3x CAN, dual Gigabit Ethernet and much more

A wide range of low- and high-speed interfaces lets you simplify product development and connect easily to peripherals. Toradex’s ready-to-use software makes unitizing these interfaces simple.

Cortex-M4 microcontroller for time-critical tasks

FreeRTOS

Offload real-time tasks from the main operating system to the M4 microcontroller for extremely low latency and highly reliable real-time performance. Toradex provides support for FreeRTOS, but a wide range of additional RTOSs can be supported — many of them safety-certifiable.

The robust, pin-compatible Apalis family

Toradex Easy Installer

The Apalis iMX8X System on Module is a member of the extensive, pin-compatible Apalis family. Apalis modules are ruggedized and vibration-tested. Toradex’s long-term availability and commitment allows you to take maximum advantage of your development and certification investments.
