MITO 8M Nano - i.MX8M Nano

Processor: NXP i.MX8M Mini / i.MX8M Nano

NXP i.MX8M Mini / Nano SOM is the new top-class Quad Core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU module by DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent NXP i.MX8 Mini / Nano application processor. The background idea with this new SOM provided by DAVE Embedded Systems is to provide customers within a FULL compatible solution with existing NXP i.MX6 Solution. With this concept, customers will be enable to jump on this new solution obtaining immediately:

  • increased performances
  • increased product life time
  • up to date and well maintained SW solutions

The use of this processor enables extensive system-level differentiation of new applications in many industry fields, where high-performance and extremely compact form factor (67,5 mm x 43 mm) are key factors. i.MX8 Mini / Nano SOM offers great computational power with a reasonable price. For these reasons it is the right alternative to NXP i.MX6 Solutions. The main features of this new product are:

  • ARM Cortex A53 MPCore + Cortex-M7 tecnology
  • eMMC or NAND SLC on board
  • dual LVDS output on board
  • Enabling massive computing applications thanks to wide range LPDDR4 RAM memory up to 2GB (4GB OPT)
  • FULL compatible with i.MX6 AXEL Lite SOM
  • Reduced carrier complexity: MIPI CSI and MIPI DSI, SDIO, USB2.0, Gb ETH, GPIOs, 3xSAI
  • Available NAND interface for cost optimization

Technical details

Operating Systems

DAVE Embedded Software Kit Linux (DESK-MX8M-L in short - read more info about the naming) - provides all the necessary components required to set up the developing environment to:

  • build the bootloader (U-Boot)
  • build the Linux operating system
  • build Linux applications that will run on the target
  • build the Yocto BSP

The Embedded Software kit is composed by:

  • VirtualBox virtual machine containing
    • toolchain and SDK
    • U-Boot bootloader sources
    • Linux kernel sources
    • Root file system images
  • git repositories access for registered users allowing the update of the following repo
    • u-boot
    • linux
    • Yocto BSP
  • SD card with the complete environment for
    • a complete Kit bootstrap and demonstration (with u-boot, kernel and root file systems binaries already configured)
