Embedded Module TQMa8MxML Embedded Cortex®-A53 module based on i.MX8M Mini with enhanced Audio properties.

  • Advanced Audio properties
  • Integrated Cortex® M4
  • High-speed communication via 1x Gbit Ethernet
  • 1x PCle and 2x USB 2.0 interface
  • Low power consumption (typ. 4 W)
  • Integrated security functions
The embedded module TQMa8MxML is based on the processor i.MX 8M Mini - an Arm® Cortex®-A53 processor from NXP. The integrated graphics controller with GPU and hardware acceleration for video encoding and decoding supports applications with high requirements for displaying complex graphics.
The CPU is available in six variants with different performance and features. Starting with the Single / Dual / Quad-core Arm® Cortex®-A53 core and a clock rate of up to 4 x 1,8 GHz, there is a Lite version with reduced graphics performance. For real-time and security the CPU is supported by a Cortex M4 controller.
