Mouser now stocks the i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit from NXP Semiconductors. The comprehensive kit offers a complete evaluation platform for the new i.MX 8M Plus embedded multi-core heterogeneous applications processors — the first in the family to combine a dedicated NPU for advanced machine learning inference at the edge in industrial and IoT applications.
The device plus evaluation kit comprises a compact compute module with onboard i.MX 8M Plus Quad processor and a larger baseboard bring out the wide connectivity required for product evaluation. The processor integrates four Arm Cortex-A53 cores running at up to 1.8GHz, plus an 800MHz Arm Cortex-M7 core for low-power real-time processing. Utilising the integrated NPU, the i.MX 8M Plus processor can simultaneously identify multiple highly complex neural network functions, including human pose and emotion detection, multi-object surveillance, and the recognition of more than 40,000 English words.
The kit is excellent for furthering designs in applications such as surveillance, robot vision, smart retail, home health monitors, building control, smart home, smart city, and industrial IoT.
