Kontron SOM-SL i.MX8M Mini

The new SoM SL i.MX8M Mini is based on the latest processor technology 4x Arm® Cortex®-A53, 1x Arm® Cortex®-M4 and the memory technology LPDDR4. The compact module stands for maximum simplicity and efficiency within the smallest space (30 mm x 30 mm). It offers the highest performance for computing-intensive applications, demanding 3D visualizations and is optimally equipped with extensive interfaces. The ready2use Linux Board Support Package (BSP) is immediately and easily deployable for IoT and Industry 4.0 applications. Thanks to its compact design, the SoM module is predestined for a wide range of baseboard designs. Kontron also provides a corresponding evaluation board (form factor: 4.3" diagonal) as a reference design. Since it is a machine-solderable module, there are no costs for the connectors on the SoM module and on the baseboard, nor for manual assembly. 

To meet even the highest security requirements, the SoM SL i.MX8M Mini can be equipped with the latest encryption techniques, secure boot and other security features. In combination with current wireless technologies and modern software architectures, it is a perfect building block for the development of secure devices in large IoT networks.  

The Kontron System-on-Module is equipped with 1 GB LPDDR4 RAM (optionally up to 4 GByte), 2 MB NOR-Flash and 8 GByte eMMC (optionally up to 128 GByte) as a standard. The SoM has 1x 1 Gbit/s (MAC), 2x USB 2.0 OTG and 4x UART ports. Numerous digital I/Os, as well as PWM and two SDIO interfaces, make the SoM module perfectly suited for industrial applications. 1x MIPI DSI is available for connecting a display and 1x MIPI CSI2 for connecting a camera.

Power is supplied via a 5V DC connection. The application range lies between -25°C and +85°C.
