MSC Technologies integrates i.MX8 Processors from NXP into its SMARC 2.0 and Qseven Modules

MSC Technologies, the technology brand of Avnet Integrated Solutions, supports the new 64-bit i.MX8 processors from NXP on its SMARC 2.0™ and Qseven™ modules. Despite their low power consumption, the high-performance modules feature very high compute performance and high-performance graphics that can control up to four independent displays. At the same time, MSC Technologies will continue to support and expand its highly successful MSC SM2S-IMX6 SMARC 2.0 module family, based on NXP’s i.MX6 processor.

MSC Technologies will support the complete i.MX8 processor family, consisting of the i.MX8QuadMax, i.MX8M and i.MX8X variants on the SMARC 2.0 form-factor, and the i.MX8QuadMax on Qseven. The compact modules are designed for the full industrial temperature range from -40°C to +85°C. Typical fields of application include industrial automation and visualization systems as well as infotainment applications in vehicles, access controls and building automation.

Jens Plachetka, Manager Product Business Unit Board Platforms, MSC Technologies, says: “By supporting the i.MX8 processors on our SMARC 2.0 and Qseven modules, we are continuing to drive the tremendous success of our NXP i.MX6-based low power products. In the future, we expect a constant increase in demand for Computer-On-Modules (COMs) with ARM processors that are particularly suitable for embedded applications with high energy efficiency and open up new markets for COM-based systems.”

As a first product, MSC Technologies offers the MSC SM2S-IMX8M SMARC 2.0 module, which integrates the dual- or quad-core processor i.MX8M ARM Cortex-A53 from NXP. The compact module with dimensions of 82 mm x 50 mm provides up to 4GB LPDDR4 SDRAM and up to 64GB eMMC Flash memory for program and data storage. In addition to HDMI 2.0 and dual-channel LVDS interfaces, a wide range of standard interfaces such as Gigabit LAN, PCIe, USB 3.0 and Audio are available. CAN and an on-board wireless module options are available.

First samples of the new module will be available at the beginning of Q2/2018.
