SolidRun announced an i.MX8M Mini based compute module aimed at a wide range of IoT and industrial applications including digital assistant solutions, autonomous cars, security camera systems, video and audio analytics, and digital signage.

The Linux- and Android-supported i.MX 8M Mini SOM has the same  footprint as last year’s i.MX8M-based i.MX8 SOM and similarly works with the open-spec HummingBoard Pulse board that was announced with the i.MX8 SOM.

i.MX 8M Mini SOM combines all of the essential components necessary to quickly prototype powerful AI solutions into a compact 47mm x 30mm module, including processor and memory options, a GPU, Gyrfalcon’s Lightspeeur® 2803S Neural Accelerator chip, optional flash storage, audio and video input and output and more.

You can purchase the i.MX 8M Mini SOM in Solo, Dual, or Quad models for one to four cores. They are otherwise identical except that the Solo ships with up to 3GB LPDDR4-3000 while the others can go to 4GB.
