The new partnership will provide customers with a solution that quickens time to market while maintaining secure devices throughout the product lifecycle.

The solution comes with up to 1.8GHz Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 plus a 400MHz Cortex-M4 real-time processor. Variscite includes its SoM providing a variety of interfaces, including certified single-band 802.11 b/g/n or dual-band 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n, 4.2 Bluetooth/BLE, Gigabit Ethernet, dual USB2.0, CAN bus and LVDS. The VAR-SOM-MX8M-MINI is pin-compatible with the VAR-SOM Pin2Pin product family.

Variscite will continue to plan additional integration within the i.MX8 series modules.
