Nitrogen8M: Optimized for 4K/HDR Video, pro audio, and advanced HMI solutions

Leveraging the industry-leading audio and video processing of the NXP i.MX 8M applications processors, The Nitrogen8M Platform is ideal for applications scaling from consumer home audio to industrial building automation and mobile computers.

Potential Applications for Nitrogen8M

  • Streaming video devices – over-the-top (OTT) set top boxes, digital media adapters, digital signage, machine visual inspection

  • Streaming audio devices – surround sound, wireless or networked speakers, sound bars, audio/video (AV) receivers, public address systems

  • Voice control and voice assistants, with reference designs for homes or noisy industrial environments

  • General purpose human machine interface (HMI) solutions − touch, voice, graphics, video, image analytics, and sensor

Nitrogen8X: Enhanced reliability for your industrial and mission critical applications

The Nitrogen8X will be designed to support graphics, video, image processing, audio, and voice functions, through the i.MX 8X processor family. Applications that require safety-certification and efficient performance requirements in the industrial automation, HMI, industrial control, robotics, building control, automotive cluster, display audio infotainment, and telematics spaces can benefit from its design.

Potential applications include:

  • Automotive—instrument cluster, infotainment, display audio, rear seat entertainment, smart antenna, Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2X), gateway and camera systems
  • Industrial vehicle—avionics cockpit display, in-flight entertainment, train and heavy equipment HMI
  • Advanced industrial human machine interface (HMI) and control—PLC, I/O controller, home/building control
  • Robotics—drone, mobile service robot
  • Building Control—fire and security panel, elevator control, HVAC control
  • Healthcare—patient monitor
  • Networking—specialty gateway, low-end video conference terminal
  • Mobile payment—payment system
Nitrogen8MAX: Powerful graphics power for your multi-platform/display applications

Engineered to maximize the advantages of the advanced media processing, secure domain partitioning and innovative vision processing of the i.MX 8 applications processor family. The Nitrogen8MAX platform can be used with multiple display automotive applications, industrial systems, vision, and HMI.

Potential Applications:

  • Automotive infotainment—instrument cluster, head unit, heads-up display (HUD), rear seat entertainment and full digital electronic cockpit (eCockpit)
  • Advanced industrial human machine interface (HMI) and control 
  • Home/Building Automation
