i.MX 8M Plus – Arm® Cortex®-A53 Processor

CPS 50-N01 i.MX 8M Plus-based solution features four core 1.6 GHz Cortex®-A53 processor supported by a Cortex®-M7 co-processor for real-time control. This is accelerated by dual ISPs and an integrated NPU. Delivering up to 2.3 TOPS, it facilitates powerful image and AI inferencing capabilities while consuming less power comparing to calculations by the core CPUs alone. Such features enable the platform for AI applications like object detection, recognition, classification, and pose estimation.

Machine Learning and Vision

Edge AI applications including facial recognition and product assembly optimization require premium camera inputs. CPS 50-N01 offers 1 x MIPI-CSI camera interface with built-in hardware ISP to enable intelligent vision-based systems, delivering advanced 4K performance. It supports one HDMI port, one dual-channel LVDS, or one 4-lane MIPI-DSI display interface for facial recognition, object detection, digital signage, machine learning and vision applications.

Flexible I/O and Peripherals

The CPS 50-N01 comes with 2GB of integrated LPDDR4 memory with ECC, 32GB eMMC, and Gigabit Ethernet with TSN that provides Ethernet-connected deterministic control with precise time synchronization. It features a module rear I/O mechanical design for connection with application-oriented I/O expansion boards. Developers can select I/O extension boards for more peripheral connectivity.


Likewise, CPS 50-N01 provides the necessary I/O for advanced network and peripheral connectivity. Coastline ports include 2 x GbE, 1 x HDMI, 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1, and USB 2.0, RS-232/422/485. Internal connections include MIPI-CSI camera interface, LVDS, or optional MIPI-DSI display interfaces. Expansion features include an optional choice of expansion boards available by request with additional RS-232, CAN, USB 2.0, and GbE ports.


NexAIoT provides image and standard BSP (Board Support Package) support for Linux Yocto and offers design-in services to help customers quickly create their applications.

Expansion Capabilities and Connectivity for Edge AI

There are also M.2 Key E and mini-PCIe, accompanied by a nano SIM card slot with optional Wi-Fi/BT and LTE modules. These features make the CPS 50-N01 perfect for edge AI and machine learning industrial applications for calculations, line productivity monitoring, and improving manufacturing safety.

Industrial Reliability and Longevity

For i.MX 8M Plus processors, NXP offers 15-plus year availability. Whereas, the CPS 50-N01 provides product longevity and support of up to 15 years.
