Toradex announces availability of the power-efficient Colibri

Toradex has started shipping its Colibri iMX8X System on Module ( in the early access program. This is Toradex’s first Arm® Cortex®-A35 based System on Module (SoM) featuring the NXP® i.MX 8X System on Chip (SoC).

The module is pin-compatible with the Colibri family ( which includes NXP i.MX 7, i.MX 6, i.MX 6ULL and NVIDIA® Tegra 2- and 3-based SoMs. In addition to the common Colibri interface, the Colibri iMX8X is the first module to introduce dual channel LVDS, MIPI DSI display and a quad-lane MIPI CSI-2 camera interface.

The module comes with up to four Cortex-A35 ( cores, the Cortex-A35 is the most power-efficient 64-bit Armv8-A processor, and its updated NEON can accelerate computing loads such as Machine Learning and Computer Vision.

The power-efficiency is further enhanced with low power LPDDR4 RAM. An additional Cortex-M4F microcontroller allows for offloading of real-time tasks from the main cores, reaching extreme low latency and jitter, alternatively it can be used for additional power optimizations.

The Vivante GPU supports OpenGL ES, OpenCL and Vulkan for advanced Graphics, or to accelerate compute workloads such as Deep Learning Inference.

Optional, the Colibri iMX8X is available with onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It supports Dual-band 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.

The Colibri iMX8X is designed for markets with high-reliability requirements including industrial automation, medical, and railway applications. The i.MX 8 SoC is based on a 28nm advanced FDSOI silicon process to increase MTBF and decrease soft error rates. On board highly-reliable Flash Memory keeps the system running for years. SafeAssure® failover-capable display controllers and other safety-minded features allow the module to be used in critical applications.

Toradex will provide a production-ready Yocto Project based Linux BSP, including free professional support. The Colibri iMX8X will also support the upcoming Torizon Software Platform (, an easy-to-use industrial-grade Linux. It will provide simple Over-the-Air and Security features and allows for easy migration from Windows Embedded Compact to Linux. An early preview of Torizon can be found on Toradex Labs ( website.

Toradex is excited to work with its extensive proven partner ecosystem ( to integrate Software and Services on the Colibri iMX8X.

Toradex is based in Switzerland with offices around the world, offering Arm®-based system on modules (SoMs) and customized Single Board Computers (SBCs). Powered by NXP® i.MX 6, i.MX 7, i.MX 8 and Vybrid, and NVIDIA Tegra® Tegra 2, 3 and TK1 SoCs, these pin-compatible SoMs offer scalability in terms of price, performance, power consumption and I/Os. Complemented by direct online sales and long-term product availability, Toradex offers direct premium support and ex-stock availability with local warehouses. For more information, please visit
