April 22, 2021-Mouser Electronics, a global authorized distributor of Electronic components focused on introducing new products, will begin selling NXP Semiconductors’ i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kits today. This comprehensive kit provides a complete evaluation platform for the new i.MX 8M Plus embedded multi-core heterogeneous application processor. The i.MX 8M Plus processor is the first device in the i.MX series to integrate a dedicated neural processing unit (NPU), which can be used to perform advanced machine learning inference at the edge of industrial and Internet of Things (IoT) applications.
The NXP i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit supplied by Mouser Electronics includes a compact computing module equipped with an i.MX 8M Plus Quad processor and a larger substrate that integrates the connections required for product evaluation. The i.MX 8M Plus Quad processor integrates four Arm® Cortex®-A53 cores running at a frequency of up to 1.8 GHz and an 800 MHz Arm Cortex-M7 core for low-power real-time processing. Utilizing the integrated NPU, the i.MX 8M Plus processor can simultaneously perform a number of highly complex neural network functions, including human posture and emotion detection, multi-target monitoring, and the recognition of more than 40,000 English words.
The NXP i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit is ideal for advanced designs, suitable for applications such as surveillance, smart retail, robotic vision, home health monitors, smart homes, smart cities, building control, and industrial Internet of Things.
