Announcement: Q1/2018

The i.MX 8 product family offers the next-gen technology for industrial embedded systems: speech recognition and gesture control, superior graphics performance as well as sophisticated security features. Phytec is NXP Proven Partner and therefore gets early access to processors. We develop SOMs and SBCs for industrial use based on the NXP i.MX 8, i.MX 8M and i.MX 8X applications processors.

With our Phytec phyCORE-i.MX 8 Modules customers get access to the latest available components. As a member of the Xccela™ Consortium for example we equip the modules with Octal SPI/DualSPI Xccela Flashes offering highest performing memory.

First phyCORE-i.MX 8 SOMs and corresponding Rapid Development Kits are planned for Q1 / 2018 – all  processor features will be available on the Carrier Board.

Crowd Requirement Engineering

In addition to Phytec’s own development, we also initiated and support the community project CRE-8. Participate in the specification of an i.MX 8 SBC:  >>>www.cre-8.world

Development Kits

PHYTEC will also offer a full scope of kits for start-up, evaluation and rapid development around our i.MX 8 Series board-level products.  Standard kits will include:

  • phyCORE-i.MX 8 SOM
  • Carrier Board with fully validated circuitries and standard connectors for all common interfaces and peripheral features of the i.MX 8, usable as a development platform as well as reference design for end user carrier board designs
  • Kit variants in support of multiple operating systems:
    • Linux: Yocto environment with pre-installed and configured packages such as QT-Libs, OpenGL and Python
    • Android
    • QNX, freeRTOS and other software available upon request
  • Rich documentation: Hardware Manual, QuickStart Instructions, Application Guides, Software Application Examples

Rapid Project

When an off-the-shelf development kit isn't enough, PHYTEC offers Rapid Prototyping services. This new service complements and extends the scalability of i.MX 8 Series devices by leveraging known good circuitry and layout blocks to create customer-specific hardware I/O platforms. In a matter of weeks a custom prototype can be designed and produced.
