i.MX 8M Mini

Bringing performance, power efficiency and cost-effectiveness to industrial applications


  • Power Efficient and Scalable Performance
  • Size- and Cost-optimized System Design
  • Media-rich: Video, Graphics, Audio, User Interface
  • Industrial and Commercial, Longevity of Supply

The i.MX 8M Mini is a multi-core heterogeneous applications processors built using advanced 14LPC FinFET process technology. And brings together high-performance computing, power efficiency, enhanced system reliability and embedded security.

At the heart is a scalable core complex of up to four Cortex-A53 running up to 1.8GHz plus Cortex-M4 based real-time domain at 400+MHz. i.MX 8M Mini core options are optimized for low-power but offer the breadth of processing power necessary for consumer, audio, industrial, machine learning training and inferencing across a range of cloud providers.

Power Efficient   and Scalable Performance

  • Low power 14LPC delivers much lower leakage than standard technology
  • Single-, dual- or quad-core Cortex-A53 cores up to 1.8 GHz; scalable performance in a pin-compatible package
  • Cortex-M4 up to 400MHz for HMP (task offload, power optimizations)

­Size- and Cost-optimized System Design

  • Full-featured packages with 6-8 layer board design and no microvias
  • Direct connection of PDM microphones (no CODEC) enables low system-cost
  • Linux/Android/FreeRTOS BSP and solutions software

Media-rich: Video, Graphics, Audio, User Interface

  • 1080p60 video decoding (H.265, H.264, VP8/9)
