Variscite Unveils i.MX 95-based System on Module For Powerful, Next Generation Edge platforms

With impressive graphics, advanced security and safety features, rich connectivity, and AI/ML capabilities

TEL AVIV, Israel – November 2, 2023Variscite, a leading worldwide System on Module (SoM) designer, developer and manufacturer, today announced the upcoming release of the new DART-MX95 for high-performance edge applications including industrial, medical, aviation, IoT, robotics, vision-capable and smart edge devices. 

Designed for high-end scalable computing, DART-MX95 is based on NXP’s i.MX 95 application processor family. This energy flex architecture includes multiple heterogeneous processing domains with up to 6 cores, 2.0 GHz Arm Cortex®-A55, two independent real-time co-processors for safety/low-power, and real-time use, consisting of 250 MHz Arm Cortex-M7 and 800 MHz Arm Cortex-M33. 

The platform presents an impressive 2D/3D graphics accelerator powered by Arm Mali™, advanced multimedia, integrated NPU accelerator and ISP, high safety and security capabilities that meet the ASIL-B and SIL2 compliances, and a rich high-speed connectivity set.

“As a Platinum partner with early access to NXP’s technology, Variscite has an enormous advantage in developing the next-gen System on Modules that give our customers the ability to create embedded devices of the future today,” said Ofer Austerlitz, VP Business Development and Sales of Variscite. “The DART-MX95 is a powerful addition to Variscite’s DART Pin2Pin family. It expands the scalability options this product family offers and future-proof customer’s applications.” 

DART-MX95 is part of Variscite’s DART Pin2Pin family which enables compatibility with modules based on the i.MX 8M/ 8M Plus/ 8M Mini. The Pin2Pin family provides an extended lifespan, reduced development time, costs, and risks as well as scalability to additional modules.

DART-MX95 key features:

  • Up to 6 cores 2.0 GHz Arm Cortex®-A55
  • Real-time co-processors 250 MHz Arm Cortex-M7 and 800 MHz Arm Cortex-M33
  • High-performance NPU for AI/ML operations

  • Wireless: Certified dual-band 802.11ax/ac/a/b/g/n with optional 802.15.4 + BT/BLE5.3
  • Connectivity: 2x GbE + 10GbE, 2x PCIe Gen 3.0, 2x USB 3.0/2.0, CAN FD, UART/USART, I2C/I3C, SPI/QSPI and ADC
  • 2D/3D GPU with support for OpenGL® ES 3.2, Vulkan® 1.2, OpenCL 3.0
  • Video Encode / Decode: 4K H.265/ H.264 encode, 4K H.265/ H.264 decode
  • Display: Up to 4K MIPI DSI, 2x LVDS
  • Camera: Dual MIPI-CSI2
  • Audio in/out
  • Industrial temperature grade: – 40 to 85°C
