    How Would You Roadtest the MaaXBoard?


      I was sent some info on a new dev board called the MaaXBoard.


      The MaaXBoard is based on the NXP i.MX 8M applications processor, and it's good for embedded computing and applications for AI at the edge, industrial automation, multimedia, and IoT applications -- all topics of interest on element14.


      The MaaXBoard uses NXP’s i.MX 8M family of applications processors, which are based on the Arm® Cortex®-A53 and Cortex-M4 cores, providing audio, voice and video processing. The MaaXBoard has a range of capabilities making it ideal to investigate AI, IoT and multimedia applications, offering designers everything they need to support and create a Linux, Android, Windows 10 IoT Core or other OS-based system. The platform’s on-board peripherals include 2GB of DDR4 memory, a Gigabit Ethernet port, dual USB 3.0 host ports, HDMI output, MIPI-DSI, MPI-CSI, WiFi, Bluetooth Low Energy, MicroSD card slot and eMMC storage.

      Here's some tech specs:

      • Processor
