Embedded Module TQMa8MxNLEmbedded Cortex®-A53 module based on i.MX8M Nano with enhanced Audio properties.

  • Advanced Audio properties
  • Integrated Cortex® M7
  • High-speed communication via 1x Gbit Ethernet and 1x USB 2.0 interface
  • Low power consumption (typ. 3 W)
  • Integrated security function
The embedded module TQMa8MxNL is based on the processor i.MX 8M Nano - an Arm®-Cortex®-A53 processor from NXP. The integrated graphics controller with GPU supports applications with high display requirements. Full access to all signal pins guarantees flexible usage and cost-effective project development.
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 1,6 GHz, there is a Lite version with reduced graphics performance. For real-time and security the CPU is supported by a Cortex M7 controller.
