SolidRun Accelerate s V2X Infrastructure Development with New i.MX 8XLite Mini SOM

SolidRun,a leading developer and manufacturer of high-performance System on Module (SOM) solutions, Single Board Computers (SBC) and network edgesolutions, todayannouncesitsi.MX 8XLite System on Module (SOM)lineengineered for a variety of V2Xapplications.Available in single-or dual-coreconfigurations, thesenew SOMspack all the essentialcomponents required toquicklydevelopV2X, V2I and industrial IoT applicationsin a 30 x 47mm formfactor.

“In order to acceleratethe adoption of autonomous vehicle technology, we need to build a digitalinfrastructure that supports it. Our new i.MX 8XLiteapplications processorwas designed specifically forthat purpose,” saidAndresLopezde VegaraLemos, Product Manager, Edge Processing business,NXPSemiconductors. “Working with SolidRun helps us jumpstartand reduce thedevelopmenttimeof V2Xhardware solutions by providing engineers a turn-key development tool based on our SoC that servesvariety of applications.”

Targetingvehicle telematics, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I)communications, road infrastructure connectivityandindustrial equipment,SolidRun’s i.MX 8XLite MiniSOMsprovides afoundation for secure V2X applications. It features excellent real-time synchronizationand control for a variety of smart-city applications and combines the high-performance applicationprocessing fromNXP’si.MX 8X processor with V2X accelerationanditsRoadLINK SAF5400 single-chipDSRC modemfor next-generation telematics.The i.MX 8XLite SOMalsofeatures an array of high-speedinterfaces–including Ethernet, PCIe Gen3, USB2.0, and CAN-FD.As part ofthe NXP longevity program,SolidRun guarantees this SOM will be manufactured for at least 15 years,making it the optimal solutionforlong-termvehicle-based communicationsinfrastructureapplications.

Beyond serving as the perfect building block for V2X infrastructure, the i.MX 8XLite SOM is also wellsuited for industrialIoT, building control and robotics applications requiring time-sensitive networking(TSN) Ethernet or controller area network (CAN) connectivity.Great for advanced industrial processesthat require reliable, accurate synchronization and real-time control, theintegrated SoC’sA35 cores andCAN-FD interface provide low-latency data transmission.

Engineered to serve a variety of application environments, ranging from commercial and industrialvehicles to roadside communications hubs and even robotics, the i.MX 8XLiteSOMsupports a vastoperating temperature range of-40°C to 105°Cwith up to 90% humidity. Its efficient design maintainsalow operating temperature without a fanandreduces the potential of heat and dust-related failures,resultingin reliable long-term operation and performance.

“Smart cities and V2X communications will not only dramatically improve the efficiency of our roadways,but it will also play a significant role in reducingcollision-relatedtraffic deaths andmake it easier foremergency vehicles to cut through congested areas,” said Dr. Atai Ziv, CEO at SolidRun.“However, noneof this can take shape withoutreliable hardware, like our i.MX 8XLite SOMconnecting theinfrastructureand vehicles.We look forward to working closely with NXP toensure our SOMsreliably power V2Xcommunications for years to come.”

SolidRunalsooffersaHummingboardcarrier boardthatis perfect forprototyping with thei.MX 8XLiteSOM. While not much larger than the SOM at just 30x55mm, theHummingboardi.MX 8XLite carriersupportsup to 2GB of LPDDR4 memory,and features expansion and communications options, including100BASE-T1 automotive Ethernet, USB 2.0 ports, and UART, SPI, SDIO,and 12CI/Opins.

The i.MX8XLiteSOMsandHummingboardcarrier boards areavailablethrough SolidRun.To helpexpedite the development process, customers will be providedwith an optimized board supportpackage, stable long-term support for select software distributions, access to SolidRun’s support toolsand sample source code.
