Verdin iMX8M Mini


Highlights

64-bit performance

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


Hard real-time-ready

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.


Power-optimized

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.


Modern, future-proof interfaces

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.


High-performance, pre-certified Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

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.


Torizon for Remote Updates and Fleet Monitoring

The SoM is available with a tightly integrated Torizon Cloud (formerly Torizon Platform) accelerating the development and maintaining your products. Some key features include highly secure and reliable remote updates, fleet monitoring and remote access.


Cost-effective

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.



Operating Systems

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.

Torizon Embedded Linux OS

Torizon is a ready-to-use Linux-based software platform ideal for use in areas like industry and medicine, where reliability is critical. It is a developer-friendly ecosystem that simplifies the process of developing and maintaining embedded software.


Reference Images for Yocto Project

Toradex develops and maintains a Yocto Project-compatible, production-quality embedded Linux BSP in-house.


FreeRTOS

FreeRTOS is supported directly by Toradex. It is a real-time OS that runs on the Cortex-M4 cores in parallel to the main OS.


Android

Android is supported by our service partner Kynetics. An Evaluation will be provided free-of-charge as a binary installer directly on Toradex Easy Installer feeds.


QNX

QNX is a microkernel-based real-time operating system, primarily targeting embedded systems requiring high safety and security. An evaluation image is provided for Verdin iMX8M Mini directly from BlackBerry/QNX.
