Click here to learn more about our Universal SMARC Carrier board.

Our customers asked for a high performance, robust SoM that simplifies their BOM, has reliable connectivity, uses a standard form factor, and is globally certified. One with multiple software options, a proven security architecture, long term software support, and security fixes. 

Our new Nitrogen8M Mini SMARC is powered by NXP’s class-leading i.MX 8M Mini processor, NXP PMIC PF8121, and our Sona Wi-Fi 6/6E and Bluetooth 5.3/5.4 wireless module families based on leading NXP and Infineon solutions, high performance LPDDR4 RAM, and eMMC storage. We combine this with our common SMARC carrier board; together they can serve as a single board computer (SBC) that can speed your product to market. Alternately, work with us to create a custom carrier that fits your mechanical, environmental, temperature, and interface requirements. 

  • Powerful Heterogenous Multiprocessing: Up to 1.8 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 microprocessor and 400 MHz Cortex-M4 microcontroller allow you to run Linux and an RTOS on dedicated, hardware-firewalled subsystems.
  • Diversity of Interfaces: Display, network, data, audio and camera interfaces.
  • SMARC 2.1.1 Standard Form Factor: 82mm x 50mm SMARC edge connector form factor which includes onboard ethernet PHY and a USB hub controller. One design supports multiple processor, memory, and wireless configurations. 
  • Hardware Upgrade Roadmap: Build a product design that can easily be upgraded to the latest processors and wireless options as future Ezurio (formerly Laird Connectivity) SOMs based on the SMARC standard are released. 
  • Advanced Common Carrier/Development Board: Display, camera, audio, Ethernet, USB, PCI-Express, I2C, SPI, UART, and more. Use in development, as an SBC equivalent in a product, or as reference designs for your carrier board design.

FAQ

What is the difference between part numbers SMARC_CAR and SMARC_CAR_BRD

Our Universal SMARC Carrier is orderable both as a standalone carrier board (SMARC_CAR_BRD) and as a kit (SMARC_CAR) complete with power, data, and antenna cable options. 

  • The part # SMARC_CAR option includes:
  • 1 x SMARC_CAR_BRD  (Main Carrier board that SMARC SOMs plug into) 
  • 1 x 5V Power Supply (USA plug connector only) 
  • 1 x DB9 Serial Cable 
  • 3 x EFB2471A3S-10MH4L (Tri-Band Wi-Fi Antennas) 
  • 2 x 001-0021 (Dual-Band Wi-Fi Antennas) 
  • 1 x Insert Card 

The part # SMARC_CAR_BRD is also purchasable on its own and this is the main carrier board. 

PLEASE NOTE – neither of these 2 part numbers include either a Nitrogen or Tungsten SMARC, they are purchased separately to meet the needs of your application. 

Is Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS) enabled by default on the Nitrogen8M Mini?

Yes, DVFS is enabled by default.  

The status can be checked by cat'ing the sysfs node below:

/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/stats/time_in_state

This will provide the time spent in each state, thus verifying that DVFS in enabled.  


What key is the M.2 slot on the Universal SMARC Carrier board?

The M.2 Slot on the Universal SMARC Carrier board is E key.
