You asked, we listened! GPU support for the i.MX 8M Plus and i.MX 8M Nano is now available with NXP’s latest Windows IoT Enterprise BSP release.
This was one of the most highly anticipated features and we are excited to have delivered it to you as of October 3rd, as part of NXP’s BSP version 1.2 release. The GPU driver supports the Verisilicon GC7000 UltraLite GPU that is onboard the i.MX 8M family of SoCs, unlocking the powerful graphics capabilities of DirectX.
To help you bring solutions to market, we have collaborated with OEMs like SECO to support Windows IoT BSPs for i.MX boards already available on the market today. An industry leader in IoT solutions, SECO specializes in embedded microcomputers for end markets ranging from medical to aerospace.
“SECO is excited to collaborate with Microsoft in the release of the Trizeps VIII Family of modules with support for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise,” says Volker Keith, SECO Executive Vice President Innovation. “Windows IoT Enterprise for Arm64 unlocks huge potential by bringing the support and manageability of Windows to a previously unattainable class of devices. Lower power, lower cost MPUs are now enabled to run PC apps with state-of-the-art graphics, opening the door to a new realm of applications. We look forward to helping customers create new IoT solutions leveraging Windows IoT and the Trizeps VIII family."
