This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

NXP i.MX Applications Processors

NXP Semiconductors’ i.MX 8QuadMax and 8QuadPlus applications processors are designed for automotive and industrial applications requiring advanced graphics, vision, and processing performance. The processors offer up to 8 cores, including Arm Cortex-A72, -A53, and M4F, as well as a Tensilica HiFi 4 DSP, dual-core GPU, and a 2-lane PCIe 3.0 interface. 

Developers can leverage hardware-based virtualization to combine multiple systems into one, while on-chip hardware firewalls and a security module isolate and protect critical services. The processor can also drive four independent 1080p displays or a single 4k display, and offers display fail-over capabilities to ensure critical information is always displayed. 

For vision-based applications, the i.MX 8QuadMax and 8QuadPlus accept multiple camera inputs and have onboard vision processing and digital stitching.
