OSM (Open Standard Module) with NXP i.MX 8M Mini / Nano CPU

F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH presents a prototype of a direct solder module.  It’a a 30 x 30mm “OSM-MX8MM” module that runs Linux on an i.MX8M Mini.

As part of the SGET, the standardization group SDT.05 was founded jointly by iesy GmbH, F&S Elektronik Systeme GmbH and Kontron AG. The aim of this group is a new standard for directly solderable modules. In the meantime, further 13 companies work on this standard.

Currently 4 sizes of 15 x 30mm, 30 x 30mm, 45 x 30mm and 45 x 45mm are planned. There will be modules from different providers in every size, also with different CPUs. A pre-release of the new standard will be available for embedded world 2020.


  • Size-S „Small“ 30x30mm
  • Other sizes are planned
  • Open Source Standard
    (not yet released)
  • Can be soldered on directly
    (can be equipped by machine)
  • Scalable
  • Standardized interfaces
  • No connectors

F&S Elektronik Systeme has been developing and producing embedded boards in Stuttgart for more than 20 years and offers a wide range of modules with NXP CPUs (from i.MX 6 Cortex-A7 to i.MX 8 Cortex-A53 quad-core). F&S Elektronik Systeme has developed a small (30 x 30mm) prototype so that potential customers of an OSM module not only have to look at graphic designs, but can also pick up a “real” module. A current NXP CPU, the i.MX 8 M Mini with 4x Cortex-A53 @ 1.8GHz, was selected. A powerful CPU with a lot of computing power and 2D / 3D graphics unit and video decoder. The pin-compatible i.MX 8 M Nano CPU can alternatively be equipped. RAM, flash on board and interfaces such as LAN, USB, SDIO, UART, I2C, SPI, audio, GPIO, MIPI-CSI and MIPI-DSI are available.

No pricing or availability information was provided for the OSM-MX8MM module. More information may be found in F&S Elektronik Systeme’s announcement and preliminary product page. Interested visitors can see the module at the F&S Elektronik Systeme booth at embedded world 2020 (Hall 2-138) and ask questions.
