Verdin Arm Family
Verdin is a new System on Module standard expanding on the successful Colibri and Apalis form factors. It provides a revised, modern and capable interface set and focuses on ease-of-use, robustness and being future-proof.
Verdin is similar sized to the Colibri but with a higher pin count. A DDR4 SODIMM edge connector provides a cost-effective, highly reliable, shock- and vibration-resistant connection.
The future-proof pinout gives developers simple access to the latest interfaces, and a wide range of pin-compatible modules will provide excellent scalability. Three simple categories of Interface pins are available. Fully compatible pins are guaranteed to be available on every Verdin module. Reserved pins have a reserved dedicated function and are available on most Verdin modules. Type-specific pins provide access to specific features of a certain SoC, but are not guaranteed to be compatible with other Verdin modules.
The Verdin Family taps into the rich Toradex ecosystem, offering industry-leading free support, an in-house open-source Linux operating system and a range of partner operating systems including Android and QNX. A wide range of industry-specific off-the-shelf software solutions (e.g. Qt, Crank, and CODESYS) are available as easy to integrate packages. In addition, a broad range of off-the-shelf carrier boards are currently in development by Toradex and its partners.
The first Verdin modules are available with the NXP i.MX 8M Mini applications processor. A version with the i.MX 8M Nano is available as a built-to-order (BTO) option. Toradex is also actively developing a Verdin module with the upcoming NXP i.MX 8M Plus processor, which includes a Neural Network Processing Unit ideal for Machine Learning applications.
