The flexible MSC SM2S-IMX8NANO SMARC 2.1 module family is highly scalable and equipped with i.MX 8M Nano Application Processors, manufactured by NXP using 14nm FinFET process technology. The module integrates single-, dual- and quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processors with up to 1.6 GHz, an ARM Cortex-M7 real-time processor and an efficient multimedia 2D/3D graphics processing unit (GPU). The thermal design power (TDP) ranges from 2 W to 4 W.
MSC SM2S-IMX8NANO offers cost-effective DDR4 memory technology, combined with up to 64GB eMMC Flash memory. Various interfaces for embedded applications such as Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, dual-channel LVDS or MIPI-DSI and MIPI CSI-2 for connecting a camera are available.
The module is compliant with the new SMARC 2.1 standard, allowing easy integration with SMARC baseboards. For evaluation and design-in of the SM2S-IMX8NANO module, MSC provides a development platform and a starter kit. Support for Linux is available (Android support on request).
