Verdin Arm Family

Verdin IconVerdin is a new System on Module standard expanding on the successful Colibri and Apalis form factors. It provides a revised, modern and capable interface set and focuses on ease-of-use, robustness and being future-proof.

Verdin is similar sized to the Colibri but with a higher pin count. A DDR4 SODIMM edge connector provides a cost-effective, highly reliable, shock- and vibration-resistant connection.

The future-proof pinout gives developers simple access to the latest interfaces, and a wide range of pin-compatible modules will provide excellent scalability. Three simple categories of Interface pins are available. Fully compatible pins are guaranteed to be available on every Verdin module. Reserved pins have a reserved dedicated function and are available on most Verdin modules. Type-specific pins provide access to specific features of a certain SoC, but are not guaranteed to be compatible with other Verdin modules.

Verdin Product Family

The Verdin Family taps into the rich Toradex ecosystem, offering industry-leading free support, an in-house open-source Linux operating system and a range of partner operating systems including Android and QNX. A wide range of industry-specific off-the-shelf software solutions (e.g. Qt, Crank, and CODESYS) are available as easy to integrate packages. In addition, a broad range of off-the-shelf carrier boards are currently in development by Toradex and its partners.

The first Verdin modules are available with the NXP i.MX 8M Mini applications processor. A version with the i.MX 8M Nano is available as a built-to-order (BTO) option. Toradex is also actively developing a Verdin module with the upcoming NXP i.MX 8M Plus processor, which includes a Neural Network Processing Unit ideal for Machine Learning applications.

(1)The Wi-Fi component on the module is limited to an operating temperature range of -30° to +85°C. As this component is not deemed boot-critical, the Verdin iMX8M Mini 2GB WB IT is still listed as an Industrial Temperature product.

General: Some interfaces are available on pins that are not entirely compatible within the Verdin Computer on Module family. There are restrictions to using different interfaces simultaneously, please check the respective datasheet for exact details.
