- Heterogeneous Multicore Processor (HMP)
- Hardware accelerator for 1080p video decoding/encoding
- 4x Cortex-A53 @ 1.8 GHz & Cortex-M4 @ 400 MHz
This application processor module is optimized for advanced multimedia applications, video decoding, and comes with up to 4x A53 and 1x M4 cores.
The iMX8M Mini uCOM Board features high-end graphic capabilities with both 3D and 2D engines and hardware accelerator for 1080p video decoding and encoding.
With MIPI DSI display output, MIPI CSI camera inputs, flexible audio interfaces and comprehensive communication features, the i.MX 8M Mini is ideal for multimedia applications.
Heterogeneous Multicore Processing (HMP)
The i.MX 8M Mini processor comes with up to 4x Cortex-A53 cores and one Cortex-M4 core. This combination of different cores allows a feature rich OS, like Linux, to run on the Cortex-A cores while a Real-Time OS such as FreeRTOS can run on the Cortex-M4 core.

Power Optimized Design
Combining the processor with LPDDR4 memory and Rohm’s efficient BD71847AMWV PMIC results in a very low power module.
The HMP architecture can reduce the power even more by letting the Cortex-A53 cores sleep until needed. The Cortex-M4 can wake them up on demand.
Ultra compact form factor, 42×45 mm, using the proven Hirose DF40C connectors.
The module is based on NXP’s energy efficient i.MX 8M Mini processor which has up to 4x Cortex-A53 cores capable at running up to 1.8 GHz and one Cortex-M4 core capable at running up to 400 MHz.
The iMX8M Mini uCOM Board is available in extended and commercial temperature ranges, -25 to +85 / 0 to 70 degrees Celsius, respectively. The industrial (temperature range) version is suitable for always-on applications.
