Nov 26, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 847 views

Earlier this month, AAEON released an IoT Gateway targeting industrial edge gateway applications, Industry 4.0 and machine learning applications. The SRG-IMX8P is equipped with two GbE ports, 2x CAN-FD, 2x RS232/422/485 and support for wireless connectivity.

The product page lists the i.MX8M Plus from NXP as the RISC processor of the SRG-IMX8P IoT Gateway.


  • NXP i.MX8M Plus — Quad-Core Cortex-A53 processor (up to 1.6GHz); Single Cortex-M7 (up to 800 MHz); 2.3 TOPS NPU; 16 GFLOPS GPU

The standard model comes configured with 2GB DDR4L/16 eMMC, but it can be upgraded to 4GB DDR4L/32 GB eMMC. There is also a MicroSD card reader for extra storage. 

Some of the interfaces found on this IoT Gateway include up to two USB.3.0 ports, two CAN-FD connectors and two RS-232/422/485 serial ports. AAEON also stated that “The USB 3.0 and RJ-45 LAN ports support more sophisticated camera and sensor peripherals, while the CAN-FD slots enable users to transmit and receive sensor data via the SRG-IMX8P’s I/O directly, negating the need for USB-to-CANBus conversion.”

The SRG-IMX8P offers two Gigabit ethernet ports, up to three antennas and one SIM card slot as in the image below. Additionally, there are two Mini PCIe connectors which can be used for Wi-Fi/BT or 3G/4G LTE modules. 

AAEON mentioned that this device supports Debian 10 OS. Documentation and OS image files can be found on the SRG-IMX8P product page. The company will also supply Modbus/MQTT libraries at customer’s request.
