ICOP Enhances NX8MM-35 SBC for Industrial Applications with Updated LVDS & HDMI Interfaces

Jun 12, 2024 — by Giorgio Mendoza 107 views

ICOP Technology has revised its NX8MM-35 series, an industrial Single-Board Computer originally launched in April 2023. Following extensive customer feedback over the year, ICOP stated that they modified this NXP based SBC to better support LVDS displays for industrial applications.

The updated NX8MM-35 features an i.MX 8M Mini Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor with speeds up to 1.8GHz and supports up to 4GB of LPDDR4 memory and 64GB of eMMC storage.

The board offers comprehensive connectivity options, including Gigabit Ethernet, four USB ports, four COM ports, I2C, SPI, GPIO, Touch, MiniPCIe with a SIM card holder, and HD Audio.

The recent version simplifies SPI connectivity by combining it with touch controller support and a SIM card slot. The design allows for easy switching between LVDS and HDMI outputs via a jumper, enhancing adaptability for developers working with different display technologies.

The integration of LVDS in the NX8MM-35 provides several technical benefits. LVDS supports high-speed data transmission, which is critical for applications requiring fast data exchange. The technology operates at low voltages, reducing power consumption.

LVDS also offers resistance to electromagnetic interference, ensuring reliable communication in electrically noisy environments. Additionally, differential signaling helps maintain signal integrity over long distances, which is vital in large-scale industrial settings.

ICOP Technology indicates that they support the NX8MM-35 with a variety of technical resources, including demo images, and device tree configurations, to help developers quickly adapt and utilize the board in their projects.
