Thor96 Board

The Thor96 Board is a single-board computer, based on the 96 Board standard and powered by the NXP i.MX 8M SoC, incorporating a quad-core 64-bit Arm-A53, dedicated GPU and VPU, 4K support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a wide range of I/O. Thor96 has a high-performance GPU that are capable of processing compute intensive calculation, while supporting OpenGL 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1 and Open CL1.2. The Thor96 supports low latency digital audio to multiple microphone arrays and speakers using A2B® technology by Analog Devices.

While Wi-Fi and Ethernet are now commonplace in single-board computers, the Thor96 takes the lead with the Cypress’ WICED Wi-Fi + Bluetooth combo solution which integrates IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN and Bluetooth in a single-chip solution to enable small-form-factor IoT designs.

Thor96 is designed for industrial and IoT application with CANbus support, Silicon Labs based Zigbee solution & BLE both for IoT communication.
