Multimedia and Graphics Power-house
The phyCORE-i.MX8 SOM brings cutting edge graphics, video, and signal processing to your product design. Utilize the advanced GPU with OpenVX, OpenGL, OpenCL, and Vulkan support or accelerate your own algorithms on the integrated Tensilica HiFi4 DSP. The i.MX8 SOM is a perfect fit for Edge Computing including applications in machine vision, intelligent data gathering, and machine learning.
The i.MX 8 Processor
The NXP i.MX 8 Series processors offer fast multi-OS platform deployment via advanced full-chip hardware virtualization and domain protection. The processor can support rich, fully-independent graphics content across 4x HD screens or 1x 4K screen while assuring all displays are always-on via SafeAssure technology.
In addition, vision and speech recognition can be realized via a powerful vision pipeline and audio processing subsystem
The phyCORE-i.MX 8 utilizes rugged Sam-Tec connectors which allows access to the processors features and advanced I/O.
Memory and Storage
The phyCORE-i.MX 8 supports NAND, eMMC, and Octal SPI NOR.
PHYTEC Board Support Packages (BSPs) are software bundles that implement and support operating systems on our System on Modules. PHYTEC BSPs are application development-ready, offering all essential drivers and board-level feature support. The only task left for you is application integration. This way, you can focus on your core competencies while PHYTEC takes care of the rest.
With processor speeds up to 1.6GHz, discrete graphic acceleration and the Tensilica HiFi4 DSP, the phyCORE-i.MX 8 is the ultimate for performance. In addition to processing performance the phyCORE-i.MX 8 offers h.265 4K decoding, 1080p h.264 encoding, and supports OpenGL ES 3.1, OpenVX, OpenCL, and Vulkan frameworks.
