Variscite Previews a i.MX 91 based System on Module at COMPUTEX

Variscite takes part in NXP's announcement of the new i.MX 91 platform and presents its related cost-effective SoM solution

TEL AVIV, Israel – May 30, 2023Variscite, a leading worldwide System on Module (SoM) designer, developer and manufacturer presents today a working demonstration of the new VAR-SOM-MX91 at COMPUTEX 2023 conference in simultaneity with NXP’s announcement of the i.MX 91 SoC. 

The VAR-SOM-MX91 offers a cost-optimized solution for embedded designs in various applications such as IoT, smart home, connected sensors, industrial controllers, and metering. The solution is based on the NXP i.MX 91, which features an Arm® Cortex®-A55 running at 1.4GHz, 2GB LPDDR4 memory, dual Gigabit Ethernet, dual USB, dual CAN-FD, audio in/out, ADC, certified single or dual-band Wi-Fi, BT/BLE, and display output along with integrated EdgeLock® Secure Enclave and industrial temperature grade.

The VAR-SOM-MX91 is the latest entry into the Variscite VAR-SOM Pin2Pin family which enables compatibility with a wide range of SoMs based on different processors and performances, starting from i.MX6UL / i.MX 6ULL modules, through iMX6, i.MX 8M/ Mini/ Nano/ Plus, i.MX93 and AM625x, up to the high-performance i.MX 8X and i.MX 8QuadMax. This product family allows Variscite’s customers to easily scale at any point of the product lifecycle while using the same carrier board for all platforms. The Pin2Pin family provides an extended lifespan, reduced development time, costs, and risks as well as advanced scalability options from entry-level to high-performance modules.

The VAR-SOM-MX91 share similarity with the recently released VAR-SOM-MX93 SoM based on the i.MX93 processor which offers a rich set of features at an attractive price. Both SoMs share industrial features like the CAN, GbE and an industrial temperature rating, while the VAR-SOM-MX91 features leaner specifications to further optimize the system cost.

“Variscite is pleased to leverage its early access to NXP’s application processors by launching a SoM solution simultaneously with NXP’s release of the i.MX 91 processor. We continue to set market benchmarks in terms of reliability, scalability and price,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “With the VAR-SOM-MX91, we are able to deliver a solution for cost-sensitive designs with rich connectivity and scalability under our pin2pin family.” 

Availability and Longevity

Currently in pre-release, evaluation platforms of the VAR-SOM-MX91 are expected in the second half of 2023. The VAR-SOM-MX91 is included in Variscite’s long-term longevity plan and will provide expected longevity of 15 years.

Achieve Greater Design Flexibility and Reduce Costs with Chiplets

Sponsored by Keysight

Chiplets are a new way to build a system-on-chips (SoCs) to improve yields and reduce costs. It partitions the chip into discrete elements and connects them with a standardized interface, enabling designers to meet performance, efficiency, power, size, and cost challenges in the 5 / 6G, artificial intelligence (AI), and virtual reality (VR) era. This white paper will discuss the shift to chiplet adoption and Keysight EDA's implementation of the communication standard (UCIe) into the Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS).
