iMX8 embedded modules have landed! But which is the right one for you?

Choosing the right module for your design is a vital and often complicated process. Narrowing the selection down from the thousands available takes time and patience, especially as new innovations are constantly being released.

Some of the factors to consider include form factor, price, functionality and performance to name just a few. Here at Hitex we have selected a prestigious cross-selection of vendors to provide a capsule collection to choose from which now also includes the i.MX8 from NXP.

i.MX8 boards come in a wide variety of variants and formats making them an ideal choice as there is likely to be a good fit for your requirements. The three main variants are i.MX8, i.MX8M and i.MX8X. These also have a wide variety of features such as peripherals and security features. These additional benefits are very important not just from an engineers point of view but also from a cost perspective. By selecting the right module with the correct level of functionality for the job, it is possible to keep the cost low on every build.

Choosing any module is not an easy process, and it is likely that laying out your own design will also be worth considering.

Hitex can offer a wide range of i.MX8 modules as well as a host of alternatives, including in-house design capabilities should a custom board be the better option.
