Published time: 2019-12-20 10:41:25

 i.MX 8 Family of Applications Processors NXP

Built with advanced media processing, secure domain partitioning and innovative vision processing, the i.MX 8 applications processor family will revolutionize multiple display automotive applications, industrial systems, vision, HMI and single-board computers.
Automotive infotainment—instrument cluster, head unit,heads-up display (HUD), rear seat entertainment and full digital electronic cockpit (eCockpit) Advanced industrial human machine interface (HMI) and control
Single-board computers

Easily combine multiple systems into one.
Build multiple platforms with multiple operating systems on a single i.MX 8 processor. The i.MX 8 full-chip hardware-based virtualization, system MMU, resource partitioning and split.
GPU and display architecture enable faster time-to-market and lower cost than simple hypervisor techniques alone.

Securely change hardware partitions at run time

Applications can ‘sand-box’ operations by moving hardware. IP such as GPU, display or peripherals to multiple firewalled domains at run time.

Secure your system with advanced programmable security
Top-of-the-line security from first boot to securing with the latest cryptography standards (AES, flashless SHE, elliptical curve cryptography, key storage).

Improve your system reliability with FDSOI

Built using 28 nm FDSOI, the i.MX 8 applications processor enables improved MTBF and decreases soft error rates due to FDSOI’s inherently high immunity to alpha particle flux. 


  •  Create advanced vision-based HMI systems
High-performance end-to-end vision processing for vision-based assistance, tracking and object detection.
  •  360-degree expanded sight
Utilize multi-camera input, digital stitching and VX vision extensions and provide a view from any angle.
  •  Multi-domain voice recognition
Utilize the ARM® Cortex®-A72 and Cortex-M4F cores as well as the HiFi 4 DSP* for advanced echo cancellation,key word detection and speech recognition for hands-off interaction.
  •  Four screens of independent content
Develop innovative, multi-screen platforms through the ability to drive up to four 1080p screens with independent content, or a single 4K screen.
  • Ensure your display stays up and correct
SafeAssure® ASIL-B ready hardware protects critical visual information with fail-over-capable quality of service to any display.
  •  Offload time-critical tasks
Utilize dual Cortex-M4F cores for time-critical tasks such as backup camera display, audio control and general system monitoring and wakeup.
