CL-SOM-iMX8X – a miniature System-on-Module based on NXP i.MX8X SoC


CompuLab introduces CL-SOM-iMX8X – a miniature System-on-Module built around the NXP i.MX8X System-on-Chip family.

High performance, powerful graphics and extensive connectivity make CL-SOM-iMX8X an excellent solution for a very wide range of applications such as industrial HMI, building control, image processing systems, IoT gateways, medical devices and metering systems.

CL-SOM-iMX8X has been designed to bring out the full I/O capabilities of the highly versatile i.MX8X SoC. Peripheral interfaces include PCI Express, dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB ports, 4 UARTs, 3 CAN-FD ports and 96 GPIOs. Display connectivity is supported with two independent LVDS / MIPI-DSI interfaces. In addition, CL-SOM-iMX8X extends the i.MX8X I/O even further with on-board 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2 and 3 additional USB ports.

CL-SOM-iMX8X is offered with full industrial temperature range of -40C to 85C.

Software Support

CL-SOM-iMX8X is provided with a full BSP and ready-to-run images for the Linux operating system. The CL-SOM-iMX8X BSP includes Linux kernel 4.14, Yocto Project SDK and U-Boot boot-loader.

Evaluation and Design Support

To facilitate streamlined and rapid product development, CL-SOM-iMX8X is supported with the SB-iMX8X carrier-board and EVAL-iMX8X evaluation kit.

SB-iMX8X carrier-board has been designed for CL-SOM-iMX8X evaluation and application development. SB-iMX8X schematics, bill of materials and layout are available to be used as a reference design for a wide range of industrial use cases.

The EVAL-iMX8X eval-kit offered at $395, includes CL-SOM-iMX8X and SB-iMX8X hardware set, an optional LCD panel, PSU, cables and a technical support contract.
