Rohm Semiconductor today announced that Embedded Artists, the producer of embedded SoMs and boards for use in industrial systems and as development platforms, is using a highly integrated PMIC from ROHM, together with NXP’s i.MX 8M Nano processor, on its iMX8M Nano uCOM board to deliver a robust and cost-effective solution for industrial applications.

ROHM’s BD71847AMWV is a system PMIC for i.MX 8M Nano, as well as 8M Mini. Developed in collaboration between Embedded Artists, NXP, and Rohm, the uCOM board measures just 45mm x 42mm, and features the i.MX 8M Nano processor with Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 and Cortex-M7 running at up to 1.5GHz/750MHz. Its low power consumption suits it to long duty cycle, battery-powered remote applications. 

The 13,800 DMIPS high performance board also includes: 

  • 1 GByte DDR4 2400 MT/s
  • 16-bit databus; 8 GByte eMMC on-board Flash
  • MIPI-DSI graphical output and MIPI-CSI camera input
  • USB2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, and other interfaces
  • Optional Murata 1MW Wi-Fi/BT module that supports 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and BT/BLE 5.0

In addition to power rails, DVFS support, and programmable sequencer, BD71847AMWV integrates a programmable power button, 32 kHz crystal driver and buffered output clock, extensive fault detection and protection circuitry. These features and factors help reduce development time, decrease risk, and simplify application design.
