by gabi

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest electronic components and industrial automation products, is now stocking the Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC from Ezurio (formerly Laird Connectivity). As part of the company’s comprehensive system-on-module (SOM) portfolio, the Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC® conforms to the SMARC® 2.1.1 industry standard, offering global certification, a standard form factor, multiple software options, a proven security architecture, accelerated video/audio, long-term software support and security fixes that are well-suited for industrial IoT (IIoT) and HMI applications. This powerful and customizable solution enables heterogeneous multiprocessing, offers numerous interfaces and presents a smooth migration path to future long-term support and design-ins using the latest processors and wireless options as new Ezurio SMARC® SOMs are released.

The Ezurio Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC, available from Mouser Electronics, is a robust SOM powered by NXP’s first-in-class i.MX 8M Mini applications processor, with optional Sona™ Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth® 5.3/5.4 wireless modules based on leading Infineon and NXP solutions, and the NXP PF8121 power management IC. The SOM provides high-performance LPDDR4 RAM / eMMC storage capabilities, and the NXP cores feature a 1.8 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 MPU and a 400 MHz Corex-M4 microcontroller. The Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC can also function as a powerful single-board computer (SBC) on a standard SMARC carrier board to aid designers in simplifying their bill-of-materials (BOM) and getting their products to market faster.

For additional design flexibility, the Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC supports multiple connectivity interfaces, including two I2S audio interfaces, a MIPI-CSI camera interface, five I2C modules, PCIe, three USB2 interfaces, a GbE, SDIO/eMMC, two SPIs, UART and GPIO. The SOM is also regulatory compliant with global radio certifications, including FCC, ISED, CE, UKCA and more.

Ezurio’s Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC is available now from Mouser Electronics in a SMARC 2.1.1 standard form factor of 82 mm x 50 mm and is offered in multiple high-performance memory options. Software support for the Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC includes Yocto Linux, Buildroot Linux, Android, Ubuntu, Zephyr RTOS and FreeRTOS. The SOM is specified at an industrial temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (commercial range of 0°C to +70°C), has a 10+ year product lifecycle, and is ideally suited for Smart buildings and appliancesindustrial IoT (IIoT)HMI, touchscreens and displays, vision systems, food and beverage and medical devices.
