phyCORE®-i.MX 8M Polaris

Embedded Imaging Kit




ARM CortexTM-A53/-M4

The phyBOARD-Polis, either a development platform for the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Mini/Nano, or a powerful, industry-compatible single-board computer for immediate implementation of your product idea. As a development platform, the phyBOARD-Polis serves as reference design for your customer-specific application and enables parallel development of the software and carrier board for the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Mini/Nano. A modern FTDI interface allows software download and debugging. As a powerful, industrial single-board computer (SBC), the phyBOARD-Polis is equipped with a variety of standard interfaces which are available on standard or socket/pin header connectors, while interesting extensions of the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Mini/Nano features such as CAN FD, WLAN and an integrated TPM chip further extend the range of applications that can be developed with the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Mini/Nano.
