Portenta X8 is a powerful, industrial-grade SOM with Linux OS preloaded onboard, capable of running device-independent software thanks to its modular container architecture. Take advantage of onboard Wi-Fi/Bluetooth® Low Energy connectivity to securely perform OS/application OTA updates. It’s basically two industrial products in one, with the power of no less than 9 cores. Leverage the Arduino environment to carry out real-time tasks while Linux takes care of high-performance processing.
The Portenta X8 features an NXP® i.MX 8M Mini Cortex®-A53 quad-core, up to 1.8GHz per core + 1x Cortex®-M4 up to 400MHz, plus the STMicroelectronics STM32H747 dual-core Cortex®-M7 up to 480Mhz +M4 32-bit Arm® MCU up to 240Mhz.
