Embedded World: Seco i.MX 93 computer-on-module
Author: EIS Release Date: Mar 17, 2023
At Embedded World next week, Seco will be showing an i.MX 93 computer-on-module compliant to SMARC release 2.1.1.
Called Maury, its NXP processor has on board: Arm Cortex-A55, Cortex-M33 and Ethos-U65 – the last one a neural network processor.
“As an NXP Early Access Program participant and an NXP Gold Partner, Seco started development of Maury before the general availability of the NXP i.MX 93 processor, expected in the third quarter of 2023,” according to Seco. “The neural processing unit has 0.5Top/s, useful for keyword recognition, noise reduction, beam-forming, Deep Speech 2 and image recognition – ResNet-50, for example. Network models based on frameworks such as TensorFlow, MXNet, PyTorch or Caffe can be converted.”
Various versions will be available, covering different i.MX 933x and 935x processors, with up to 2Gbyte of soldered LPDDR4X/LPDDR4-3200. Depending on version and options, interfaces can include: 2x Gigabit Ethernet, soldered M.2 1216 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth LE module, USB 2.0 OTG, 4x USB 2.0 host, 2x CAN, 4x UART, MIPI-CSI (camera) and I2S. Display options include a single channel LVDS up to 720p60 and MIPI-DSI or eDP with up to 1080p60.
The size is 82 x 50mm and operation is over -40 to +85°C. The operating system is Yocto Linux, and there are plans to add Ubuntu (Debian) and Windows 10 IoT-Enterprise.
