The NXP i.MX 8M Mini SoC comes with up to four powerful 64-bit Armv8 Cortex-A53 cores, making it a cost effective choice for running Linux with a modern graphical user interface while providing sufficient power reserves for typical industrial and medical applications.
Verdin Product Family
The heterogeneous multicore architecture allows the offloading of critical hard real-time tasks to the Cortex-M4 processor 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.
The i.MX 8M Mini is manufactured using the low-power 14LPC FinFET Technology, making the SoC power-optimized. In addition, the Verdin form factor allows you to power off peripherals on the carrier board, and the auxiliary Cortex-M4 core can run while the main Cortex-A53 cores are powered off.
Released in 2020, the Verdin form factor is ideal for new and upcoming projects, as it features a range of modern interfaces that include Gigabit Ethernet, MIPI CSI-2 Camera, MIPI DSI Display, PCIe, Quad SPI and CAN. The 1.8 V I/O voltage level is ideal for future-proof power- and cost-optimized designs.
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 multiantenna 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.
With up to four powerful Arm 64-bit Cortex-A53 cores, the Verdin iMX8M Mini is a cost-effective choice for running Linux with a modern graphical user interface while providing sufficient power reserves for serving typical industrial and medical applications.

Simplify Modern Product Development
Toradex offers free support and maintenance for Embedded Linux and FreeRTOS on the NXP i.MX 8M Mini processor based Verdin iMX8M Mini SoM. This allows system designers to focus the application only, instead of focusing also on the OS and low-level device drivers. Other OS such as Android and QNX are supported by our partners.
QNX is a microkernel-based real-time operating system, primarily targeting embedded systems requiring high safety and security. For information about the current state of QNX, get in touch with our Sales Team.
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.
