The new Trizeps VIII Plus CPU module uses the new i.MX 8M Plus processor from the NXP i.MX8 series. The i.MX 8M Plus SoC (System on Chip) has various processor units that can handle a wide range of computing operations.
Of particular note is the NPU (Neural Processing Unit), which can handle computational processes in the field of AI (Artificial Intelligence) typically with learned neural networks. These can be used for pattern, speech and object recognition. and object recognition. This opens up new areas of application for the Trizeps VIII Plus SOM (System On Module).
Equally important is the wide range of applications for the classic embedded functions. This is where the Dual Gigabit Ethernet and Dual CAN FD interfaces, which are used e.g. in industrial automation, are convincing. "Low power" applications or real-time applications can be provided by the integrated 800 MHz clocked Arm Cortex-M7 co-processor. USB 3.0 and PCIe are available as high-speed interfaces.
The Trizeps VIII Plus can also be used for a wide range of multimedia applications. The powerful 2D and 3D GPUs (graphics processing units) enable the simultaneous use of multiple displays and cameras that can be integrated independently of each other. Fast image processing is enabled by high-performance video decoders and encoders as well as two image signal processors (Dual-ISP - Dual Image Signal Processor). Also, powerful audio and voice functions are available. Displays can be connected via HDMI, (dual-)LVDS or MIPI-DISI interfaces.
Besides, the Trizeps VIII Plus extends the functionality of the i.MX 8M Plus SoC with the configurable FPGA, the programmable Kinetis Cortex M0+ MCU, the HiFi Audio Codec and the WLAN/Bluetooth module.
The Trizeps VIII Plus features the Keith & Koep SODIMM 200 standard, which is the world's longest established SODIMM standard in the world. Like no other module standard, this one guarantees the extensive pin compatibility of the of the Trizeps modules with each other. This means that the Trizeps VIII Plus can also be used on older Keith & Koep platforms.
