Product Documents




The SOM-IMX8MP is a System on Module (SoM) containing processor, memory, eMMC Flash, WIFI module, Ethernet PHY and supporting power circuitry. The SoM is based on NXP i.MX8M Plus series processors, and can be easily used by a designer in their own products and systems, help customers to bring their products into market quickly.

The electrical interface of SoM is via two 100-pin high density BTB connectors and two 30-pin high density BTB connectors, and the signal definition of two 100-pin connectors is compatible with CM4 of Raspberry, so it could be an high performance alternative of CM4 for some products embedded in CM4.



Key features of the SoM are as follows:

  • NXP Quad core Cortex-A53 (ARM v8) 64-bit SoC @ 1.8GHz
  • 25 TOP/s Neural Network performance available for user applications

SoM dimension as below viewed from the Top.

Components in blue are on Top;

Components in Orange are on Bottom;

The height of WIFI/BT module is 1.7mm;

The height of CPU is 1.5mm;

A cooling solution is needed to ensure CPU of SoM to maintain an operational temperature. The SoM’s threaded standoffs can be used to mount a passive or active cooling solution.
