Debix Model B SBC targets industrial embedded applications

May 26, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 526 views

The Debix Model B is a single board computer integrating the NXP i.MX8M Plus processor with 2.3 TOPs NPU and with extended operating temperature range. The new embedded device comes in a Raspberry Pi form-factor and offers similar peripherals.  

The company states that the only difference between the Debix Model A launched last year and the Debix Model B is that the latter model is “fully capable of operating at -40℃~85℃ after we upgraded individual chips and components on the board.”

In other words, all the peripherals available on the Debix Model A are also present on the Debix Model B including the display ports, camera support, Gigabit LAN port, 40-pin expansion header, etc.
