DEBIX SOM A i.MX 8M Plus Core Board


The first DEBIX core board with industrial or commercial grade CPU options

  • Overview

    DEBIX SOM A is the first System on Module product of the DEBIX series. As with the DEBIX Model A SBC, it is based on NXP i.MX 8M Plus CPU with a 2.3 TOPS NPU, which brings us the same powerful system performance. This core board design has some notable benefits, such as design reutilization, reduction of development time of the carrier boards, and flexible integration into various embedded systems.
