At NXP FTF China today, NXP Semiconductors officially announced the i.MX 6ULL applications processor which the company claims it delivers up to 30 percent more power efficiency than its nearest competitors.
The i.MX 6ULL was designed forengineers and developers working on cost-effective solutions for the IoT consumer and industrial, mass markets. The processor features secure encryption, implementation of a single ARM Cortex-A7 core, provides various memory interfaces and includes an integrated power management module to reduce complexity.
This latest addition to the i.MX 6 series introduces a single Cortex-A7 processor core running up to 528 MHz with 128 KB of L2 cache and 16-bit DDR3/LPDDR2 support. Its integrated power management, security unit and wide range of connectivity interfaces, provides new ways to address performance scalability and low power for secure IoT applications. The i.MX 6ULL processor has compatible and scalable package options including the 14 x 14mm and the 9 x 9mm.
The i.MX 6ULL applications processor will start at $3.50 USD in 10,000 unit quantities. The i.MX 6ULL applications processor is sampling now and is expected to be in full production in October 2016 along with the GA release of the Linux BSP. The i.MX 6ULL processor is supported by the i.MX 6ULL evaluation kit that includes a CPU module and a base board.
