i.MX 8X Multisensory Enablement Kit (MEK)

NXP's development tools and ecosystem for safety-certifiable and efficient performance i.MX 8X application processors are ideal in automotive and industrial applications

Image of NXP's i.MX 8X Development Tools and EcosystemThe i.MX 8X multisensory enablement kit (MEK) from NXP provides a platform for evaluation and development of the Arm® Cortex®-A35+ Cortex-M4F based i.MX 8QuadXPlus, i.MX 8DualXPlus, and i.MX 8DualX applications processors as well as the NXP PF8100 power management integrated circuit (PMIC) solution and sensors. The i.MX 8x processor family from NXP is ideal for safety-certifiable and efficient performance requirements thanks to its high-level integration that supports graphics, video, image processing, audio, and voice functions.

The MEK is complete with highly optimized drivers and software. Users can utilize the stand-alone MCIMX8QXP-CPU to get a jump start on i.MX 8X development. The optional MCIMX8-8X-BB baseboard includes the IMX-AUD-IO board and can be used for additional connectivity, audio, and expansion options.
