SMARC 2.0 Quick Starter Kit for NXP i.MX 8 designs

SMARC 2.0 Quick Starter Kit for the new NXP i.MX 8 QuadMax processor family. The kit offers everything developers need for the immediate evaluation of the new NXP i.MX 8 processor generation. Developers of vision-based AI applications, in particular, benefit from the natively supported integrated MIPI interfaces and optional pre-configured software support for artificial intelligence.

The new congatec SMARC 2.0 Quick Starter Kit integrates conga-SMX8 computer modules with either the low-power NXP i.MX 8X or the high-end NXP i.MX 8 (QuadMax) series, as well as a conga-SEVAL evaluation carrier board, which offers access to all interfaces and functions for SMARC 2.0 based NXP i.MX 8 designs. The evaluation carrier supports a comprehensive set of interfaces including 4x PCIe x1, 1x mini PCIe, 2x USB 3.0, and 4x USB 2.0 for generic extensions. Next to 2x RJ45 for Gigabit Ethernet, 4x COM, 1x CAN bus and 12 GPIOs are also available. Displays can be connected via dual channel LVDS, eDP, DP and 2x MIPI-DSI, and additional storage media via an SD/MMC socket and 1x SATA 6G. Digital and analog audio I/Os for I2S and HDA complete the interface offer.
