CompuLab introduces CL-SOM-iMX8Plus – a NXP i.MX8M-Plus System-on-Module in SO-DIMM form-factor

Yokneam, Israel 31-March-2022 – CompuLab introduces CL-SOM-iMX8Plus – an SO-DIMM System-on-Module built around the NXP i.MX8M-Plus System-on-Chip family. High performance, powerful graphics and extensive connectivity make CL-SOM-iMX8Plus a versatile solution for a wide range of applications such as industrial HMI, building control, image processing, IoT gateways and medical devices.

CL-SOM-iMX8Plus has been designed to bring out the full capabilities of the i.MX8M-Plus SoC using the CompuLab unified CL-SOM SO-DIMM form-factor. Peripheral interfaces include dual Gigabit Ethernet / RGMII, PCI Express, 2 USB3.0 ports, up-to 4 UARTs, 2 CAN ports and 90 GPIOs. Display connectivity is supported with HDMI, LVDS and MIPI-DSI interfaces. In addition, CL-SOM-iMX8Plus provides on-board pre-certified 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0 interfaces.

CL-SOM-iMX8Plus is offered with full industrial temperature range of -40C to 85C.

Software Support

CL-SOM-iMX8Plus is provided with a full BSP and ready-to-run images for the Linux operating system. The CL-SOM-iMX8Plus BSP includes Linux kernel 5.10.9, Yocto Project SDK, U-Boot boot-loader and RTOS SDK.

Evaluation and Design Support

To facilitate streamlined and rapid product development, CL-SOM-iMX8Plus is supported with the SB-iMX8Plus carrier-board and EVAL-iMX8Plus evaluation kit.

SB-iMX8Plus carrier-board is optimized for easy evaluation of all CL-SOM-iMX8Plus functions. It also serves as reference for the customer’s carrier-board design, providing proven building blocks for all key interfaces and peripherals. SB-iMX8Plus schematics, bill of materials and layout are available.

EVAL-iMX8Plus eval-kit offered at $445, includes CL-SOM-iMX8Plus and SB-iMX8Plus hardware set, an LCD panel, PSU, cables and a technical support contract.
