Toradex’s NXP i.MX 8X based System on Module. The i.MX 8X SoCs comes with up to 4x Cortex-A35 and 1x Cortex-M4. The Cortex-A35 is an extreme power-effective 64bit Arm Core, the M4 is used to offload real-time tasks, check for errors to increase safety, and check for errors to further lower the power consumption.
The RAM and cache on the 8X can be protected with ECC (Error Correction Code) which make these SoMs ideal for critical applications such as Industrial Automation, Medical, Railways, etc.
Toradex shows the Colibri iMX8X running a GPU accelerated Qt application. The Apalis iMX8X with ECC will be available soon The Industrial 4.0 demo shows a Real-time Time Motion Control Application. A Toradex Apalis iMX6 powers the Midi-Eagle Computer from Diamond Systems featuring dual ethernet interfaces A CODESYS Soft PLC Stack is running on top of real-time Linux with a motion controller software. The motors are connected via EtherCAT. The system also utilizes an OPC-UA Server from Matrikon The demo was put together by the experienced Toradex Partner BE.Services.
RIMAC, famous for its insanely fast electric cars, demonstrates how the pin-compatibility of the Toradex SoM allows them to simply upgrade from an Apalis iMX6 to an Apalis iMX8QM.
Kynetics is providing Android support for Toradex modules. They show off Android on the i.MX 8 QuadMax but also on the i.MX 7 utilizing the integrated Cortex-M4 Core.
This allows it to run on the Cortex M4 Core an RTOS such as FreeRTOS and offload tasks.
Kynetics also provides an over-the-air (OTA) solution called Update Factory for IoT applications based on Eclipse hawkBit.

Microchip showcases their demos for the automotive, consumer, medical, industrial markets and more. Microchip demonstrations include: Connectivity
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN)
Networked sensors are the future of improving the efficiency of HVAC systems in smart buildings. Learn how three different networking schemes, LoRaWAN, MiWi™ and Wi-Fi® can all be used to send sensor readings to the AWS cloud.
Low-Power Wi-Fi Sensors
Discover how Wi-Fi devices can be used in hard-to-get-to places in the home without running new power through the walls with the ultra-low power ATWINC1510, an IEEE 802.11 b/g/n network controller to add-on to existing microcontroller (MCU) solutions bringing Wi-Fi and network capabilities through SPI-to-Wi-Fi interface.
Secure picoPower LoRa Node
Learn how to implement Arm TrustZone technology and other crucial security features found in low-power LoRa end nodes powered by the SAM L11MCU in such as this light sensor. The SAM L11 features picoPower Technology, with less than 25 uA/MHz active current and less than 100 nA sleep current, as well as enhanced Peripheral Touch Control, making it perfect for wearable, wireless and security-focused applications.
Versatile picoPower Technology
Learn how one family of 32-bit microcontrollers can serve your needs in low-power, water-tolerant touch and high-trust applications. The SAM L1x family’s picoPower technology, enhanced Peripheral Touch Controller and robust security technologies are well suited for smart city, industrial automation, smart agriculture, medical and accessory authentication applications.
Connected Home Demos
Time is money – especially in development processes where time to market is a key factor in the decision process. Microchip's turnkey touch solutions are readymade for your touch design. Buttons, sliders, wheels, proximity – all available with selectable interfaces (I2C, SPI, GPIO) from a single input, up to 64 buttons. Even appliance safety class B pre-certified solutions are available for designs where functional safety is a focus.
Voice-to-Text with Bluetooth Low Energy
Mobile phones are everywhere and sometimes you need to be able to see what is being said. Watch how the ATBTLC1000-ZR Bluetooth low energy System in Package (SiP) module, hosted by the SAM D21 MCU, can enable you to view the words you hear on an easy-to-use E-Ink display from Ineltek.
Easy Branding and Ease of Use
Drive profitable brand preference and ease of use for your end customers with the PIC32MZ DA graphics microcontrollers and MPLAB Harmony Graphics Composer tools and libraries. Custom graphics, animation and deep-color pallets will have your embedded design reflecting your company’s professional brand image, driving preference and profit.
Wi-Fi to Bluetooth Low-Energy Gateway
Learn how to securely connect Bluetooth devices like a door lock, ceiling fan or LED bulb to the cloud with the combination of the ATWINC3400 Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module and the ATECC608A secure element. The ATWINC3400 is an IoT network controller offering Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy network capabilities within a single module. The ATECC608A secure element integrates Elliptic Curve Diffie Hellman (ECDH) security protocol an ultra-secure method to provide key agreement for encryption/decryption, along with Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) sign-verify authentication, ideal for IoT applications.
Secure Authentication to Google Cloud IoT Core with a Secure Element
Learn how to protect the private key used for authentication in a flexible, secure element while easily implementing JSON Web Token-based authentication. This cost-effective solution uses the ATECC608A secure element to provide robust security, even to systems with small microcontrollers (MCUs) such as an Arm Cortex-M0+ based device.
Secure Authentication to AWS IoT Core with a Secure Element
Protect the private key used for the authentication of your AWS IoT connected device by using our flexible secure element (ATECC608A). Enabling robust, mutual authentication with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), this cost-effective solution can be used across a wide range of MPUs and MCUs, including small Arm Cortex-M0+ based MCUs.
