The Ka-Ro TX8M-SV81 development kit is based on the i.mx8M Mini and TIANMA 10.1-inch display


Increasing numbers of products perform interactions with the user.
The human-machine interface (HMI) is the face of the application to the customer. It helps to present complex processes in a simple way and enable contemporary operation of devices.

Connecting a display to an established application where previously a few LEDs sufficed is a task that often poses three different challenges for developers:

  1. How do I do it?
  2. What does it cost?
  3. And how complicated is it to get started with display and HMI technologies?

Ka-Ro and GLYN answer these questions with the new TX8M-SV81 development kit. It consists of a combination of a TFT with a matching computer-on-module solution.


Data processing in real time
The TX8M-1610 computer-on-module in the kit is the latest product from Ka-Ro’s successful TX series. The core component of the module is the new i.MX 8M Mini processor from NXP. It features four ARM® Cortex® A53 cores, which can be clocked at up to 1.6 GHz, as well as a Cortex M4 core with up to 400 MHz for real-time data processing. The module is equipped with 1 GByte RAM and 4 GByte eMMC storage.

Simple system integration
The carrier board fits perfectly on the back of the TFT, making it easy to integrate in custom applications. It contains all the essential interfaces (illustration), to communicate with the outside world. All the pins of the SODIMM modules can be reached with a connection strip.


The development kit is supplied with a Debian Linux. Alternatively, a Yocto-based Linux is also available. Windows 10 IOT is planned as a further operating system. 


The 10.1” display is a TM101JVHG32-01 from TIANMA. It has a standardised cover glass with black print and a high resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels (WXGA).

With a brightness of 850 cd/m², it is particularly suitable for applications in direct sunlight. The display has an IPS panel for outstanding legibility, even at wide viewing angles.

The PCAP also features the latest technology. The combination of the TIANMA touch sensor and the new ILI2511 controller from ILITEK enables extremely precise input.


The development kit has the order reference TX8M-SV81 and is available ex stock.
It contains:


  • TX8M-1610 COM board with i.MX8M Mini, 1.6 GHz quad core
  • Carrier board
  • 10.1” TM101JVHG32 WXGA LCD with cover glass and capacitive touch
