Toradex announced the launch of its newest family of System on Modules (SoM), Verdin. The first modules of the line feature the NXP i.MX 8M Mini and Nano applications processors.

Features of the new Verdin line include a battery-ready design with an input voltage range of 3.3-5V; low power 1.8V IOs; the ability to easily extend power management to carrier board peripherals; off-the-shelf thermal solutions; and a range of test reports including data on EMC, shock, and vibration tolerance. It utilizes 260pin SODIMM DDR4 edge-connector. Additionally, it features up to 4x Cortex-A53, up to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC Flash Memory.

I/Os on the SoMs include USB, gigabit ethernet, PCle, CAN-FD, and more.

Toradex will be offering two off-the-shelf carrier boards. The first being the Verdin Development Board, a larger board that exposes all the features available on Verdin. As such, the Verdin Development Board allows users to build up even complex systems in no time.

The second board, Dahlia, is a  120mm x 120mm board. Dahlia is designed to provide a simplified development experience with features such as a convenient USB-C power option and full debugging over USB.
