Variscite teases i.MX 91 based System-on-Module with GbE support

Jun 2, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 253 views

This week, Variscite revealed at Computex 2023 that they will soon release a low-cost System-on-Module based on the latest NXP i.MX 91 processor optimized for Linux-based applications.

According to the press release, the new VAR-SOM-MX91 will be featured in a similar form-factor as other Variscite products from the VAR-SOM Pin2Pin family (i.e. VAR-SOM-MX93). This will allow customers to use the same carrier board to evaluate multiple Variscite SoM from the same family to reduce costs and development time.

Official documentation isn’t available yet since the VAR-SOM-MX91 is still in an early pre-release stage. However, the company mentioned that the SoM will provide features such as “dual Gigabit Ethernet, dual USB, dual CAN-FD, audio in/out, ADC, certified single or dual-band Wi-Fi, BT/BLE, and display output along with integrated EdgeLock Secure Enclave and industrial temperature grade.”
