Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC SOM Combines Powerful NXP Edge Processing with Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.2 Connectivity

Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC

Laird Connectivity has introduced the new Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC which is powered by NXP’s innovative i.MX 8M Plus applications processor, NXP PMIC PCA9450, and Laird Connectivity’s Sterling™-LWB5+ Wi-Fi 5 & Bluetooth 5.2 combo radio module based on Infineon’s CYW4373E silicon. This high-performance SOM, when combined with the new SMARC carrier/development board, together serve as a single board computer (SBC) that can significantly speed customer products to market. 

The Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC is suitable for a broad range of applications, including harsh, industrial IoT rugged handheld devices, industrial IoT gateways, IoT vision solutions, and healthcare devices. It supports a robust, secure, and optionally encrypted boot mechanism to ensure only trusted software boots on your device.

Powered by NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus, the Nitrogen8M Plus SMARC is an ideal solution for powerful heterogenous multiprocessing, delivering a versatile, power efficient up to 1.8 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 microprocessor and 800 MHz Cortex-M7 microcontroller that allow customers to run Linux and an RTOS on dedicated, hardware-firewalled subsystems.
