phyCORE®-i.MX 8M Plus
The phyCORE-i.MX 8 M Plus, not only for edge applications, but especially suitable for them. Based on the NXP i.MX 8M Plus SoC, the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Plus is PHYTEC's most intelligent module. Equipped with up to 4 Cortex-A53, one Cortex-M7 for real-time applications, and a unique combination of a variety of multimedia interfaces with a powerful NPU (Neural Processing Unit), the i.MX 8M Plus SoC is ideally suited for machine learning (ML), image processing, advanced multimedia and industrial IoT applications.
The scalable and size-optimized phyCORE-i.MX 8M Plus is the perfect basis for utilizing all i.MX 8M Plus functions in areas where intelligent and fast processing of multimedia data is required in a confined space. This could be e.g. in a smart home (e.g. home automation), the intelligent city (e.g. people/traffic monitoring), industry 4.0 (e.g. intelligent robot control, HMI) or in IIoT applications (e.g. edge computing).
With the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Plus, the necessary, highly complex parts of the circuit design are already done, which makes application development simple and cost-effective. Due to the compact size of the module (40 mm x 37 mm x 6 mm (with connectors) / 3 mm (solder module)) and the fact that almost all interfaces are available at the module connector, the phyCORE-i.MX 8M Plus can also be used in all application areas the i.MX 8M Plus is intended for.
