Advantech has introduced the ROM-2620, Open Standard Module (OSM) that aims to transform AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things) applications through its ultra-low power consumption and compact size. The ROM-2620 integrates NXP Semiconductors' i.MX 8ULP applications processor, featuring an integrated EdgeLock secure enclave, to offer modular embedded solutions for intelligent edge computing.

Security is paramount in the ROM-2620's design. Advantech integrates NXP's High Assurance Boot (HAB) technology into its AIM-Linux software service, ensuring only authorized software executes on the SOC. Leveraging NXP EdgeLock secure enclave in i.MX 8ULP, ROM-2620 establishes a silicon root of trust and robust security architecture, protecting edge devices from physical and network threats. This approach simplifies comprehensive security intelligence for IoT applications.
