i.MX 8M

Outstanding solution for media and broad embedded applications


  • Outstanding Video Performance
  • Scalable CPU Performance
  • Excellent Audio Interfaces
  • High Performance at Low Power

NXP’s i.MX 8M family of processors has up to four 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex®-A53 and Cortex®-M4 cores. Additionally to its high performance, it has flexible memory options and high-speed connectivity interfaces.
The processors feature full 4K UltraHD and HDR (Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG) video quality, the highest levels of pro audio fidelity, up to 20 audio channels and DSD512 audio.

They are outstanding parts in regards to media capabilities, but also are very competitive in a broad spectrum of general applications, due to their great performance, reduced power consumption and competitive price.
