Developers searching for a Raspberry Pi alternative may be interested in the new Nitrogen8M_Mini which has been specifically designed to consume less power and runs on the i.MX 8M Mini platform. The Nit8MQ_Mini_2r8e has been designed for development or mass production use with a guaranteed 10 year life span, FCC Pre-scan results, and a stable supply chain.
The Nitrogen8M_Mini mini PC is manufactured using 14nm FinFet technology and is capable of scaling its clock speed to match power demand by swapping tasks between low and high-powered processors. Offering a single board computer for the general embedded and Internet of Things applications.
“Built with i.MX’s industry-leading video capabilities and an emphasis on low power consumption, the i.MX 8M Mini applications processor family is ideal for applications scaling from consumer home audio to industrial building automation and mobile kiosks. The Nitrogen8M_Mini series of SBCs will include a robust set of attribute options, allowing them to be scaled up or down to fit any embedded project.”
