We are excited to share that our growing line of i.MX 8M Plus-powered solutions continue to expand! We’re dropping a new version of our ultra-popular CuBox micro-edge computer packing the quad-core variant of this powerful new processor – giving it a major boost in performance and general capability over the last generation.
This ultra-compact desktop edge computer affords users the advantages of its quad-core ARM® Cortex® A53 processor, integrated Cortex® M7 core, Cadence® Tensilica® HiFi 4 DSP and integrated neural processing unit while maintaining a pocketable form factor. At just 8 cubic inches (2”x2”x2”), CuBox-M is smaller than a Rubik’s Cube, yet offers an unwavering combination of design simplicity, connectivity and engineering capability. It’s perfect for on-the-go demos, software testing, image processing and more.
The CuBox-M is equipped with multiple USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI output with plug-and-play desktop standards that software developers are used to. Additionally, SolidRun offers an upgraded version of the CuBox-M that adds Power over Ethernet (PoE), making it so that a single Ethernet cable connection can serve double duty as a connectivity source and power source for the entire CuBox-M system.
CuBox is a simple plug and play solution capable of running the embedded software developers need without the associated clutter of cables and exposed silicon that comes with typical developer boards. It supports Android and Linux-based operating systems, with ports available today on our GitHub page.
