Multiple Arm Cortex-A35 Cores for Performance and Efficiency

The Colibri iMX8X is a small form-factor System on Module based on the latest NXP i.MX 8X SoC. 2 or 4 of the latest 64bit Armv8 Cortex-A35 cores provide state-of-the-art performance and efficiency. To learn more about the Cortex-A35 and how it compares to the Cortex-A7 and Cortex-A53 see our blog post.

Integrated Cortex-M4 Microcontroller for Reliable Real-Time Processing

FreeRTOS

Offload real-time tasks from the main operating system to the M4 microcontroller for extremely low latency and high reliable real-time performance. Take advantage of Toradex's extensive experience with Heterogenous Multicore on systems like the VF61, i.MX7 and i.MX 8QuadMax (i.MX 8QM). Toradex provides a ready-to-use FreeRTOS with inter-process communication.

Advanced Safety and Security Features

SafeAssure

SafeAssure® fail-over capable Display Controllers ensure critical displays are always on and show the valid content. Support for Hardware Virtualization, Secure Boot, and the latest Cryptography ensures that you can build a safe and secure system. The i.MX8 SoC is based on a 28nm advanced FDSOI silicon process to increase MTBF and decrease soft error rates. Highly reliable Flash Memory keeps your software over many years.

3D GPU, VPU and DSP for Fluid Graphics and Deep Learning Inference

3D GPU supporting OpenGL 3.0, OpenGL ES 3.1 and Vulkan® for high-performance Graphical User Interface. Toradex's close collaboration with Qt and Crank simplifies the development and deployment to enable a beautiful user experience. Hardware accelerated H.265 video playback allows for high-quality bandwidth optimized video. The GPUs can also act as powerful co-processors to accelerate vision and deep learning tasks via OpenCL 1.2 Full Profile.

The VPU enables hardware accelerated H.265 (only for i.MX 8QuadXPlus-based modules) video playback on 4K resolution, high-quality and bandwidth optimized video. Other encoders and decoders are hardware-optimized, such as H.264, MPEG, JPEG and others.

In addition, a Tensilica HiFi4 DSP clocked at 640MHz enables highly optimized signal pre- and post-processing.
