i.MX 8M Plus SoM Demos - Machine Learning and Multiple Displays

Published on October 26, 2020

The i.MX 8M Plus processor from NXP contains some notable differences from the i.MX 8M and i.MX8M Mini predecessors:

  1.  Integrated Neural Processing Unit (NPU)
  2. LVDS display support
  3. Integrated CAN 
  4. Built-in Dual Camera ISP 

The Nitrogen8M Plus System on Module was designed to take advantage of these new features.

In the 2 demos below, we demonstrate the NPU capabilities of the i.MX 8M Plus processor as well as show the additional LVDS output while driving multiple displays.

Demo #1 Object Detection

In this demo, we demonstrate the object detection performance of the i.MX 8M Plus compared to a strict CPU method.  We also show how the NPU can quickly detect various options utilizing a USB camera.

Demo #2 Multiple Displays

In this demo, we show 2 different displays - 1 via LVDS and the 2nd via HDMI - being driven at the same time with independent content.
