TQ Embedded TQMa93xxLA

Ideal for Smart City and IoT Applications: Powerful, Rugged and Efficient


The TQMa93xxLA is based on the NXP i.MX 93 which includes a strong but efficient trio of processors built in. The Arm® Cortex® A55 (single or dual core), the Cortex® M33 for real-time crunching, and NXP’s Ethos NPU (Neural net Processor Unit) to enhance machine learning and vision analysis and processing.  Additionally, NXP’s Edgelock® security complex of dedicated hardware brings new levels of security to bear. With a GPU, a rich set of communications, peripherals, and ADCs, the module runs a mere 2 watts with a footprint of about half a credit card.

Industrial strength baseboards are available, a starter kit and an eval kit (see ordering info).

Applications Include:

  • Traffic management/monitoring, parking management, detection/identification/tracking
  • People/Crowd management, monitoring, tracking, security, and occupancy
  • Smart buildings, smart grids, energy management, smart transportation
  • General sensor processing and IoT
