Tiny i.MX8M Mini module focuses on digital audio

Dec 17, 2019 — by Eric Brown — 1041 views

Forlinx has launched a 56 x 36mm “SoM FETMX8MM-C” module that runs Android 9.0 or Linux 4.14 on an i.MX8M Mini with 2GB DDR4, 8GB eMMC, up to -40 to 75℃ support, and a variety of digital audio interfaces.

Forlinx’ SoM FETMX8MM-C joins a growing list of tiny, Linux-friendly modules built around NXP’s i.MX8M Mini, most recently including MYIR’s MYC-C8MMX and Innocomm’s WB15. At 56 x 36mm, it’s one of the most petite entries, slightly smaller than the WB15.

The SoM FETMX8MM-C focuses on the Mini’s skills at digital audio. Applications include facial recognition, video intercom, smart lamp, advertising/vending, filter, hi-fi music system, edge computing gateway, medical, and PDA. Android 9.0 or Linux 4.14 with Qt 5.10 are available, and there are 0 to 70℃ and -40 to 75℃ tolerant models.

The SoM FETMX8MM-C ships with the quad-core, Cortex-A53 model at up to 1.8GHz. The i.MX8M Mini also has a 400MHz Cortex-M4 MCU and GCNanoUltra (3D) and GC320 (2D) graphics cores. There are H.265 and VP9 decoders that support 1080p video at half the bandwidth of H,264, says Forlinx.

The SoM FETMX8MM-C is further equipped with a Gigabit Ethernet controller and PHY support for 2x USB 2.0 including OTG. Other I/O includes PCIe, 2x SD/SDIO, 4x UART, 4x I2C, 4x PWM, 3x eCCPI, and FlexSPI. The 5V board also supports JTAG.
