Last week, iBASE released a fanless Mini-PC based on the quad-core i.MX 8M Plus processor from NXP. The ISR215 also includes one HDMI 2.0 port,  M.2 Key-B (3052) for 5G connectivity and it can be configured with up to 4GB LPDDR4/128GB eMMC. 

The i.MX 8M Plus quad-processor was recently seen in a similar rugged PC (SRG-IMX8P) released by AAEON very recently. 


  • NXP i.MX 8M Plus — Quad-Core Cortex-A53 processor (up to 1.6GHz); Single Cortex-M7 (up to 800 MHz); 2.3 TOPS NPU; 16 GFLOPS GPU; Tensilica HiFi 4 DSP

The standard variant comes with 3GB of LPDDR4 and 16GB of eMMC, but it can be configured with up to 4GB RAM and 128GB eMMC. The device also includes switches to boot up from the MicroSD card from eMMC flash. 

According to the product page, the Gigabit ethernet ports also includes TSN (Time-sensitive networking) technology to “enable deterministic real-time communication on standard Ethernet”.
