The DHCOM i.MX8M Plus System on Module is based on the Dual or Quad Cortex A53 processor i.MX8M Plus and is particularly powerful. The Neural Processing Unit with up to 2.3 TOPS enables matrix calculations for machine learning on embedded systems. The proven i.MX application processors from NXP are based on the ARM architecture and are designed for low power consumption. Our DHCOM i.MX8M Plus enables advanced image and video processing using video encoding and decoding and is compatible with our other modules from the DHCOM family thanks to the SODIMM-200 socket. Thanks to the 5-cent cooling solution, no additional heat sink is required, which has a positive effect on the dimensions. The DHCOM i.MX8M Plus is suitable for all common industrial applications and has a guaranteed long-term availability of 10+ years.
