Small, fast and affordable:
i.mx93 solutions from Ka-Ro
Plugging or soldering:
Ka-Ro presents two modules with the new i.MX93 processor from NXP™. These are a pluggable module from the TX-SODIMM series and a very compact solder module (27 x 27 mm²) from the QS solder module series.
The i.MX9352 application processor used from NXP™ has two 1.5 GHz ARM ® Cortex® A55 cores and a real-time Cortex M33 microcontroller subsystem with full access to the peripherals. Machine learning is also supported by the ARM Ethos-U65 microNPU (Neural Processing Unit) with 256 MACs/cycle.
The modules are suitable for a wide range of applications, including compact, battery-powered IoT devices.
Integrated graphics engine and LVDS interface
A LVDS interface is available on the TX- and the solder QS-module for connecting a display. The compact solder module has an LVDS interface. The graphic display is supported by a 2D GPU.
Additional Cortex-M33 core for real-time applications
The Cortex-M33 core in the i.MX93 can take over classic microcontroller tasks such as real-time processing. This means that you can do without an external microcontroller and thus reduce the overall cost of your system.
Plenty of peripherals - Twice Ethernet
The modules have a very large number of peripheral interfaces such as UART, I2C, SPI. Of course there are two CAN FD interfaces, as well as 2 x USB 2.0. A highlight of the peripherals are certainly the two available Ethernet interfaces.
Security comes from NXP's EdgeLock 'Secure Enclave', a pre-configured autonomous security subsystem that is integrated as standard on all i.MX 9 processors. For this, NXP has partnered with Microsoft to offer chip-to-cloud security with more than ten years of continuous updates and security enhancements.
Scalable with predictable long-term availability
Exceptional scalability, comprehensive long-term availability and a wide range of peripheral options have helped TX Series products gain widespread acceptance in a wide variety of market segments. The i.MX93 based modules are designed for an availability of at least 12 years.
Ka-Ro's pin- and function-compatible modules give you tremendous flexibility.
Simply exchange them - works upwards as well as downwards compatible. Samples as well as the matching starter kits will become available in the course of the year.
