The integrated neural network processing unit (NPU) was designed from the ground up to execute deep learning inference, and to outperform CPU- and GPU-based solutions in the same power range by several times. Toradex provides integration with popular machine learning frameworks, such as TensorFlow.
Toradex closely partners with leading providers of embedded camera modules to offer you a selection of easy-to-integrate camera solutions, reducing time-to-market and risk.
The SoM is available with a tightly integrated Torizon Platform accelerating the development and maintaining your products. Some key features include highly secure and reliable remote updates, fleet monitoring and remote access.
The heterogeneous multicore architecture allows the offloading of critical hard real-time tasks to the Cortex-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. The Cortex-M7, with a clock speed of 800 MHz, is a fast and capable microcontroller.
Simplify your design with pre-certified wireless options — from the module to the antennas — to make end-device certification processes more predictable while cutting costs. The latest 802.11ac standard and support for multiantenna setups contribute to a great end-user experience out-of-the-box. These are paired with Bluetooth 5 support to offer high performance and compatibility with the latest Bluetooth devices.
The NXP i.MX 8M Plus SoC comes with up to four powerful, 64-bit Armv8 Cortex-A53 cores, making them a cost-effective choice for running Linux with a modern graphical user interface while providing sufficient power reserves for typical industrial and medical applications.
The Verdin iMX8M Plus is pin-compatible with the other CoMs in the Verdin family. This allows existing Verdin-based products to easily scale and migrate to the new Verdin iMX8M Plus. All of Toradex’s Verdin carrier boards are compatible with the Verdin iMX8M Plus. Extensive product documentation, developer support, service partners and third-party carrier boards are the pillars of our strong Verdin ecosystem.
Verdin iMX8M Plus - Introduction
Development and Maintenance of your Embedded Linux Vision System – Simplified!
Toradex offers free support and maintenance for Embedded Linux and FreeRTOS on the NXP i.MX 8M Plus processor based Verdin iMX8M Plus SoMs. This allows system designers to focus on 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.
To get your products 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.
