Nitrogen8M Nano

 The Nitrogen8M_Nano SBC is the latest in our line of i.MX based Nitrogen platforms, leveraging the recently released i.MX8M Nano family of applications processors from NXP.  The Nitrogen8M_Nano was designed for industrial applications with integrated RS-485 and CAN BUS and Dual Ethernet.   It includes an accessory kit option with a 5V Power Supply, 16GB microSD card with Linux OS, Battery, and Serial Console Cable. The Nitrogen8M_Nano is designed for mass production use with a guaranteed 10 year lifespan, FCC Pre-scan results, and a stable supply chain. Industrial temperature and conformal coating options are available. It can be modified by de-populating unused components or fully customized for cost reduction.  Contact us for more information.
