i.MX 8M Mini/Nano System-on-Modules (SoMs)

Beacon EmbeddedWorks’ wireless SoM features NXP’s i.MX 8M mini processor and Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth® 4.2 connectivity

Beacon EmbeddedWorks’ i.MX 8M Mini/Nano system-on modules (SoMs) can help customers get their product to market faster and reduce design risk. The multicore architecture of NXP’s i.MX 8M Mini/Nano applications processor provides the platform to develop a portfolio of devices on a single hardware design. The i.MX 8M Mini/Nano SoM provides security, high-performance multimedia processing including 3D graphics and high-definition video, power-efficient processing capabilities, and wireless connectivity. Beacon EmbeddedWorks is a leader in designing and developing SoMs with wireless technologies, low-power capabilities, and small form-factors. Board support package (BSP) options are continuously updated with versions of Linux, Android, and real-time operating systems. With a low stack height and compact footprint, the i.MX 8M Mini/Nano SoM is an excellent choice for next-generation medical, military, aerospace, and industrial applications where space is at a premium.
