- The "SB option" column specifies the SB-iMX8 carrier board P/N code required for a particular feature. The "SOM option" column specifies the CL-SOM-iMX8 P/N code required for a particular feature. SBC-iMX8 feature-set is a combination of features provided by the attached CL-SOM-iMX8 and the features implemented on SB-iMX8. For a particular feature to be present, both the SOM and SB options of that feature must be implemented.
- "+" means that the feature is always available, regardless of P/N code.
