VAR-SOM-MX93 from Variscite is a system-on-module (SoM) for energy-efficient machine learning (ML) edge devices. The VAR-SOM-MX93 is designed to accelerate ML and offers an energy-flex architecture for efficient processing. It features a 1.7GHz Dual Cortex™-A55 NXP iMX93 processor and an additional 250MHz Cortex-M33 real-time co-processor with a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU) 0.5 TOPS and built-in security features. The VAR-SOM-MX93 is included in Variscite’s long-term longevity plan and will provide an expected availability of 15 years. This SOM can enhance the energy efficiency of the products and offer designers reduced development time, costs, and risks.
The SoM offers industrial features like 2x CAN bus, 2x GbE, and industrial temperature grade plus a wide range of features and connectivity options: camera inputs, audio in/out, ADC, 2x USB, certified dual-band Wi-Fi, BT/BLE, and display outputs.
“As a company dedicated to being first to market with innovative solutions, we are proud to deliver the VAR-SOM-MX93, which provides our customers with a high-quality, future-proof SoM that meets the market’s demand for energy-efficiency solution, especially for smart edge devices,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “This next generation of technology extends the coverage of Variscite solutions for the embedded market.”
