Beacon EmbeddedWorks’ i.MX 8M Plus SOM can help you get your product to market faster and reduce your design risk. The multicore architecture of NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus applications processor provides the platform to develop a portfolio of devices on a single hardware design. The i.MX 8M Plus SOM provides security, high-performance multimedia processing including 3D graphics and high-definition video, power-efficient processing capabilities, and wireless connectivity. With a low stack height and compact footprint, the i.MX 8M Plus SOM is an excellent choice for next generation medical, military, aerospace, and industrial applications where space is at a premium.

The design, development, manufacturing, and ongoing support of embedded technology is a complex and time-consuming process without the right expertise. At Beacon EmbeddedWorks, we elevate your product development with custom SOM solutions and high-performance application development kits. Beacon EmbeddedWorks is a leader in designing and developing SOMs with wireless technologies, low power capabilities and small form factors. We have the experience and knowledge to help you select the right SOM, integrate the SOM into your product design, or develop a customized SOM to meet the needs of your application.

Beacon EmbeddedWorks can also help at any stage in the product lifecycle, so our expertise and assistance doesn’t end when you’ve completed your hardware design. Beacon EmbeddedWorks provides continuation support including obsolescence management and application engineering for any product utilizing one of our SOMs. We also continually update our board support package (BSP) options with versions of Linux, Android, and real-time operating systems.
