DEBIX dev board runs on Linux and Windows IoT Enterprise

Aug 1, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 368 views

DEBIX introduced yesterday a development board based on the NXP i.MX 8M Plus quad-core processor with a 2.3 TOPS NPU. The DEBIX SOM A I/O Board is presented as a solution for industrial control, IoT connectivity and multimedia applications.

This development board accommodates the DEBIX SOM A which is described as the first System on Module of the DEBIX series. This device integrates an i.MX8M Plus CPU similarly to the DEBIX Model A SBC seen last year.

According to DEBIX, the commercial-grade CPU operates at a speed of 1.8GHz, while the industrial-grade variant runs at a slightly lower speed of 1.6GHz.

The SoM offers a flexible configuration range of 1GB LPDDR4 to 8GB, while the storage options can be adjusted from 8GB to 128GB eMMC. The core board provides versatile boot options since it can be booted from eMMC (SoM), Micro SD (on carrier board), or SPI Nor Flash (on carrier board).

For connectivity, the board features two independent MAC Gigabit RJ45 ports with POE power supply (requires POE power device module), 2.4GHz & 5GHz Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0 support.

 

The DEBIX SOM A I/O Board offers a variety of additional I/O interfaces, such as a Micro SIM slot, Micro SD slot, Mini PCIe slot for 4G and LoRa modules, and multiple USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 hosts. It also includes isolated serial ports (RS232/RS485), UART TTL 3.3V system debug port, isolated DI and DO for flexible digital I/O configurations, and isolated CAN for automotive and industrial applications.

Additionally, DEBIX indicates that this embedded product is compatible with Ubuntu 20.04, Android 11, Yocto-L5.10.72_2.2.0 and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise (requires at least 8GB RAM). See the DEBIX SOM A I/O Board demo above for more details.
