Now at Mouser: Laird Connectivity’s Summit SOM 8M Plus Development Kit for Demanding IoT Applications
Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorised global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the new Summit SOM 8M Plus Development Kit from Laird Connectivity.
The new development kit allows engineers to develop Laird Connectivity’s Summit system-on-module (SOM) 8M Plus, a highly integrated software and hardware solution powered by the high-performance NXP Semiconductors i.MX 8M Plus processor. The Summit SOM 8M Plus Development Kit supports the development of advanced wireless Internet of Things (IoT) applications, including industrial IoT devices for harsh environments, IoT vision solutions, and healthcare devices.
At the heart of the Laird Connectivity Summit SOM 8M Plus Development Kit, now available from Mouser Electronics, is the Summit SOM 8M Plus, which combines NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus applications processor with an NXP 88W8997 wireless system-on-chip. The Summit SOM 8M Plus includes an integrated 2.3 TOPS neural processing unit, advanced connectivity, and enhanced security, providing the hardware acceleration necessary for sophisticated machine learning applications. The quad-core processor can run multiple instances of Linux for different purposes, including user interface and connectivity, to enable the development of highly advanced IoT solutions.
The Summit SOM 8M Plus Development Kit includes reference designs for display, camera, audio, LTE, GPS, USB 3.0 power, and more. The kit features an extensive array of interfaces, supporting up to three displays and multiple options for audio, camera, video out, and I/O. Featuring dual-band 2×2 Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth® 5.3 connectivity, the device ensures reliable connectivity even in challenging environments. The onboard Summit SOM 8M Plus is designed for security and durability, and the Summit Suite Chain of Trust offers root of trust hardware-based software validation and an upcoming FIPS cryptographic module validation.
