i.MX8M Mini powers Pico-ITX board and supports Yocto-based Linux distributions

Jul 1, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 4,756 views

The eDM-SBC-iMX8Mm is a Single Board Computer (SBC) which comes in a small Pico-ITX form factor and it’s powered by NXP’s i.MX8M Mini System on Chip (SoC). This compact device was designed to run 24/7 to suit applications such as kiosks , digital signage displays, smart home appliances etc.

DATA MODUL has designed this SBC to be coupled with NXP’s i.MX8M Mini Dual Cortex-A53 (up to 1800 MHz) or its Quad-core version. Both CPU models integrate a GCNanoUltra GPU with a 2D/3D accelerator and they include up to 512KB L2 in Cache memory.

The eDM-SBC-iMX8Mm has up to 4GB of onboard LPDDR4 along with 64GB of onboard eMMC storage. For additional storage, there is support for an SD card socket and M.2 B-Key socket. 

The device offers a customizable graphics interface via mezzanine module with support for one 4-lane MIPI-DSI, one dual-channel 24-bit, one 24-bit RGB and one HDMI 1.2a. The max resolution supported is 1920×1080 @60fps according to the datasheet.

For connectivity, there is support for one Gigabit ethernet port (Qualcomm AR8031 PHY), one Nano SIM card slot and a M.2 Key-B socket for WLAN/BT. 

The eDM-SBC-iMX8Mm can be powered with only 5V, but it offers a wide voltage input ranging from 12 to 24V via USB 2.0 (500 mA max). Backlight displays can also be powered through the 12/24V input.
