NEXCOM INTRODUCES CPS 50-N01 INDUSTRIAL ARM IOT GATEWAY
CPS 50-N01 is the latest slim fanless embedded system equipped with the powerful i.MX 8M Plus processor, excellent for machine learning, vision, advanced multimedia, and industrial IoT applications.
CPS 50 is a fanless PC powered by NXP i.MX8M Plus Cortex®-A53 quad-core processor with Neural Network Accelerator up to 2.3 TOPS designed for advanced machine learning inference at the industrial and IoT (Internet-of-Things) edge that require high-performance and low power consumption.
i.MX 8M Plus – Arm® Cortex®-A53 Processor
CPS 50-N01 i.MX 8M Plus-based solution features four core 1.6 GHz Cortex®-A53 processors supported by a Cortex®-M7 co-processor for real-time control. This is accelerated by dual ISPs and an integrated NPU. Delivering up to 2.3 TOPS, it facilitates powerful image and AI inferencing capabilities while consuming less power compared to calculations by the core CPUs alone.
Machine Learning and Vision
Edge AI applications including facial recognition and product assembly optimization require premium camera inputs. CPS 50-N01 offers 1 x MIPI-CSI camera interface with built-in hardware ISP to enable intelligent vision-based systems, delivering advanced 4K performance. It supports one HDMI port, one dual-channel LVDS, or one 4-lane MIPI-DSI display interface for facial recognition, object detection, digital signage, machine learning and vision applications.
Flexible I/O and Peripherals
The CPS 50-N01 comes with 2GB of integrated LPDDR4 memory with ECC, 32GB eMMC, and Gigabit Ethernet with TSN that provides Ethernet-connected deterministic control with precise time synchronization. It features a module rear I/O mechanical design for connection with application-oriented I/O expansion boards. Developers can select I/O extension boards for more peripheral connectivity.
Expansion Capabilities and Connectivity for Edge AI
There are also M.2 Key E and mini-PCIe, accompanied by a nano SIM card slot with optional Wi-Fi/BT and LTE modules. These features make the CPS 50-N01 perfect for edge AI and machine learning industrial applications for calculations, line productivity monitoring, and improving manufacturing safety.
Industrial Reliability and Longevity
For i.MX 8M Plus processors, NXP offers 15-plus year availability. Whereas, the CPS 50-N01 provides product longevity and support of up to 15 years.
