TRITON-TX8MM i.MX8M Mini Quad module

tx-reverse-160pxTRITON-TX8M Module: Quad Core i.MX8M Mini

Tiny, family-compatible module with with NXP i.MX8M Mini Quad ARM Cortex-A53 processor

TRITON-TX8MM is a tiny 68mm x 26mm SODIMM system-on-module based on NXP’s tx6ulcutlogo250iMX8 processor, which is in turn part of the pin-compatible TRITON-TX i.MX6 / i.MX8 module family. The TRITON-TX8MM is based on NXP’s i.MX8M Mini quad-core Quad processor featuring four 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 cores running at  up to 1.6GHz.  The TRITON-TX8MM comes with 1024MB DDR3L , and  a 4GB eMMC. A second core complex features an ARM Cortex-M4F microcontroller, and comprehensive graphics capabilities are provided by powerful 3D and 2D GPUs. The module provides a wide range of connectivity including Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports, MIPI-DSI display controller, MIPI-CSI camera input, and many other interfaces. The i.MX8M Mini’s VPU provides 1080p encode and decode.

TRITON-TX8MM comes with a mainline Linux BSP. The i.MX6 and i.MX8 based TRITON-TX family modules all take a single 3.3 to 5.5v supply and provide an up to 300mA 3.3V power output for use on the baseboard.

The i.MX8M Mini  based TRITON-TX8MM brings powerful yet cost-effective 64-bit performance to the embedded user, in general embedded consumer and industrial applications including medical devices, industrial  monitoring and control and smart buildings.

Preliminary Information:

Product available Q1 2019

calendarGuaranteed lifetime is a key reason to choose us – some TRITON products have already been shipping for over 10 years. Each member of the TRITON-TX module family is guaranteed to be available, in small or large quantities for at least 10 years from launch. This is a minimum, with expected lifetimes of 15 years where possible. Direct Insight brought the first system-on-module to market in 1999, and has a unique track-record in maintaining partnership with our customers for the long-term, supporting you throughout the product life-cycle.

euBecause the TRITON-TX modules are manufactured in a high-quality small-batch production facility within the EU, there are never problems with manufacturing standards or with supply. If you order 100 modules and we don’t have them in stock, we will make them. Often, cheap modules are produced in large batches by volume-oriented contract manufacturers in the Far East, and once they are gone, they are gone.

tickOur Linux BSPs are internally developed, taking advantage of (and contributing to) the latest mainline kernels, and are designed so that you can use them without further development or modification. One of the key advantages of the system-on-module approach is rapid time-to-market, and requires a reliable, production-ready BSP, and a ready-to-roll compatible tools setup. For Linux, we supply a pre-configured VM SDK.

compatibleFurther to our 10-year longevity guarantee, additional security is provided by the pin-compatible nature of the TRITON-TX range, which means that suitable baseboard designs can take all the modules from this family, including those based on i.MX25,  i.MX28, TI AM3354,  i.MX53, Snapdragon 410E, i.MX6 and i.MX8, and allows older modules to be replaced by the latest designs, with new features, better price-performance, and renewed longevity.

directinsight-logo-100pxStriving for the best technical support provision to our customers is what makes Direct Insight stand out. Using a system-on-module is all about achieving a quicker, smoother route to project completion. We have supported our customers in many hundreds of system-on-module projects over the last 19 years, and are uniquely placed to assist you.

i.MX6 and i.MX8 processors have a sophisticatpadlock-300x283ed feature called High Assurance Boot (HAB) which potentially allows the user to secure the device against code modification, while preserving the ability to update. This is achieved by programming public keys into the device, against which the private-key signed image and data are validated. We offer HAB programming during manufacture to enable customers to easily secure their device.

Maintxmainboardloboard-7 provides a complete development environment based on TRITON-TX8MM, running mainline Linux out-of-the-box. The development system consists of a baseboard which provides an unpopulated bank of 0.1″ headers for all 200 module pins (including PCIe), plus connectors for all the main module interfaces, and includes additional peripherals such as an SGTL5000 audio codec. Other connectors include USB, Ethernet, SDCard, CAN, RS-232 and RS-485. The Mainboard-7 offers an optional 640×480 capacitive touch screen, and an LVDS output to enable connection of other screen sizes. For production purposes, you will require a custom baseboard, and we are happy to offer baseboard design and manufacture as a service.

The TRITON-TX8MM is not yet a released product. We expect to begin development kit shipments in Q1 2019.
