microSOM uS04 is highly innovative, high performance module, based at i.MX8M mini family, that is one ideal successor of well known i.MX6.

This family incorporates quad/dual Arm® Cortex®-A53, with addition one Cortex-M4 core.



  • The microSOM is smart and rugged solution, soldered directly onto the main carrier board without the use of extensive connectors that will reduce reliability of the system.
  • With only 46x35mm and 4 mm height, microSOM allows you to design products extremely compact and ultra-slim.The microSOM requires a single supply of 3.3 V, with very low power consumption
  • Powerful Graphic Dedicated 2D Hardware accelerator, for applications requiring multimedia capabilities and high levels of parallel computing.
  • Dedicated 3D Hardware accelerator, supports OpenGL® ES 2.0 3D
  • 1 x LVDS (Single Channel) or 2 x LVDS (Dual Channel) 18 / 24 bit video interface
  • Camera MIPI CSI (four lanes interface)
  • Single lane PCIe interface
  • OpenHMI software enable to design a user-friendly and high quality vectorial graphic (SVG) and HTML5 rich-graphical GUI, it assures a device connectivity with suite of +200 communication protocols
  • Corvina make cloud connectivity possible
  • Optional IEC 61131-3 CODESYS 3.x
  • Linux RTOS BSP (OSADL) or Android OS BSP
