Embedded solution provider Toradex is participating in the early access programme for the new NXP i.MX 8QuadMax applications processor.
Toradex ‘s modules are widely used in various applications including in the areas like Fleet Management System, infotainment and passenger information.
Toradex said it will feature the NXP i.MX 8QuadMax on its pin-compatible Apalis Computer on Module form factor.
Apalis iMX8 will be able to take advantage of the extensive ecosystem around Toradex Apalis System on Modules.
The Toradex Apalis iMX8 will be offered with a wide temperature range and long-term availability, making it a perfect suit for rugged and demanding applications.
The Toradex Ixora Carrier Board, the CSI Camera Module and the Apalis iMX8 will make a great combination to take advantage of the high-performance computer vision processing capabilities of the NXP i.MX 8QuadMax.
Robert Thompson, i.MX Ecosystem Manager at NX, said, “Toradex, with its long history of success in developing i.MX based SOMs is an ideal partner to help NXP launch the i.MX 8Quad Max accelerate customer development.”
Toradex will provide a Yocto Project based Linux Board Support Package, which additionally includes support for FreeRTOS on the Cortex-M4F cores to fully leverage the Heterogeneous Multicore Processing architecture of the i.MX 8QuadMax.
