Low-Power 3.5” SBC with NXP ARM® Cortex-A53 i.MX 8M Processor


IBASE Technology, a world leading manufacturer of industrial PCs and embedded computing systems, has announced the new IBR210 3.5-inch single board computer featuring NXP’s dual or quad core Arm Cortex-A53 i.MX 8M processors in 1.3GHz and 1.5GHz CPU frequencies. The i.MX 8M application processors are built with advance media processing, allowing IBR210 to deliver 4K HDMI content with HDR and run a dual-channel FHD LVDS display. The board is targeted at multiple signage displays at airports, train and bus stations, and shopping malls, as well as HMI passenger information applications.

The IBR210 provides industry-leading multimedia processing for a wide range of IoT applications, with flexible memory options and high-speed interfaces. Measuring 102 x 147mm, the SBC features soldered 3GB LPDDR4 system memory on board and 8GB to 64GB eMMC flash memory, and rich I/O connectivity including one GbE RJ45, two USB 3.0, a USB OTG, an HDMI, a serial port and an SD socket. Also supported are two USB 3.0 ports from internal headers, M.2 Key-E and mPCIe expansion, a power input of 12V~24VDC via a DC-in jack and a -40C~85C wide operating temperature range.
