TQ Systems TQMa8MxML SOM

The TQ TQMa8MxML SoM features high-performance ARM Cortex© multi-core processors (A53), combined with an ARM Cortex© M4 (for real-time and security applications). In addition to powerful processing and rich graphics, audio, and I/O, the SOM also features low power (4 watts typical) and is smaller than a business card.

TQMa8MxML Features

  • ARM Cortex© A53 (1/2/4 CPU’s) & ARM Cortex© M4
  • Enhanced audio with I2S, S/PDIF, SAI, 8xPDM Mic
  • Gb Ethernet, PCIe 2.0, USB 2.0 (OTG, Host)
  • MIPI for display and camera
  • Memory: LPDDR4, NOR & eMMC/SDIO flash, EEPROM
  • Integrated Security
  • Temperature sensor, JTAG, RTC
  • Low power: 4 watts typical
  • 38mm x 38mm, 5V
  • Standard and extended temp (-40C to 85C)
