New Computer on Module series with NXP i.MX 8M Mini and i.MX 8M Plus

With the launch of the new NXP i.MX 8M Plus processor Ka-Ro has extended their range of high performance but small form factor Computer on Modules. The 8M Plus processor includes a machine learning accelerator in silicon for edge processing of AI and ML applications. Ka-Ro is an early partner for the i.MX 8M Plus, and we will have development kits and prototype modules for shipment at the NXP launch in Q1 2021.

Building on the QS Family Concept, QSX is a new 29 mm2, 108-pin QFN. The 8-pin expansion adds PCIe and USB 3.0, while retaining pin-compatibility with all QS modules. Customers can use a common pad footprint for either a QS or QSX, creating a product platform across the entire QS/QSX Family Concept.

The QSX Family Concept provides all the benefits of the QS Family: very small size, ease of design and manufacturing, no components underneath, and superior electrical and thermal performance from the ground/thermal pads. In addition, the QSX uses LPDDR4 RAM, which provides 2GB of memory for better performance in demanding applications with only a modest cost increase. The first QSX modules will be the NXP i.MX 8M Mini (QSXM-MM60) and the new NXP i.MX 8M Plus (QSXP-ML81.)

The QSX SOM (QSXP-ML81) will include 2GB RAM and 8GB Flash for these demanding applications. A TX SOM for the 8M Plus (TX8P-ML81) with the same memory configuration will be available in Q1 2021.
