The combination of iMX8M Industrial Module and iMX8M Development Baseboard offers a complete development platform comparable to a standard SBC in terms of dimensions and price, however with more flexibility in design and performance scalability.

The baseboard provides numerous interfaces, buses and connections which offer customers unique opportunity to evaluate all of their needs at just one platform. While supporting all the standard features of the powerful iMX8M Industrial Module, the carrier board provides also several high-definition video outputs, including DisplayPort, as well as two camera inputs. Many of them were ported, tested and built into the official Voipac software distributions and are available for purchase as recommended accessories.

Other significant feature of the baseboard is the full access to all the boot mode selection signals via configurable DIP switches, allowing any possible i.MX8M CPU boot mode scenario to be tested. Customers can also benefit from the support of various storage devices such as SD card, USB hard drive or SATA interface emulated via M.2 key B slot, that were tested and are available.

The baseboard has a 1.6mm thick 6-layer through hole vias PCB thus can be easily modified to fulfil your requirements for the peripherals and to fit the final device housing. The complete Altium Designer project documentation of the iMX8M Development Baseboard, including schematic and PCB, is available at the downloads section.
