Product Description

Kimχ micro is a small and spicy open hardware embedded SBC that offers tons of versitility for many different applications.

As Seen On

NXP i.MX8M

Features

Application Processor

This project was undertaken with video encoding/decoding and wireless connectivity in mind, so the i.MX8M Mini variant supports 1080p60 hardware video encode/decode.

Mini PCIe

The board can host a half or full-mini PCIe module, as often used for high-power wifi chipsets. Mini PCIe is also perfect for other types of wireless such as LTE and LoRa radios.

USB-C

The board has a full-featured USB-C port with power source and sink capabilities, as well as support for battery charging and power.

Expansion

To enable different applications, kimχ micro has high-density expansion connectors and a standard add-on module specification, as well as a Qwiic connector for rapid prototyping or simple sensor integration.

FAQ

How do I pronounce Kimχ?

Like the spicy fermented cabbage (kimchi)

Why did you call it that?

So that when we make more of these boards, we can name them things like saurkraut, sarmale, or coleslaw, and have a series of them called the cabbage patch. But we really do love kimchi, and it has part of KiCad in it, and i.MX.
