April 8, 2021 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorised global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit from NXP Semiconductors. The comprehensive kit provides a complete evaluation platform for the new i.MX 8M Plus embedded multi-core heterogeneous applications processors — the first in the i.MX family to integrate a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU) for advanced machine learning inference at the edge in industrial and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The NXP i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit, available from Mouser Electronics, includes a compact compute module with an onboard i.MX 8M Plus Quad processor and a larger baseboard that brings out the broad connectivity needed for product evaluation. The processor integrates four Arm® Cortex®-A53 cores running at up to 1.8 GHz, plus an 800 MHz Arm Cortex-M7 core for low-power real-time processing. Using the integrated NPU, the i.MX 8M Plus processor can simultaneously detect multiple highly complex neural network functions, including human pose and emotion detection, multi-object surveillance, and the recognition of over 40,000 English words.
The NXP i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit is ideal for advancing designs in for applications such as surveillance, smart retail, robot vision, home health monitors, smart home, smart city, building control, and industrial IoT.
