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 RT Crossover Processors

NXP’s i.MX RT Crossover Processors are designed as a new class of embedded processor that combines the ease-of-use and real-time operation of microcontrollers with the performance and integration of application processors. The i.MX RT is based on the high-performance ARM Cortex-M7 with advanced multimedia, external memory, wired, and wireless interfaces and security functions. The processors are built on the same advanced process nodes as APUs, and eliminate on-chip flash in favor of tightly coupled SRAM. This increases performance while lowering cost.  An internal DC/DC converter and low-power run modes enable low-power operation, and developers can leverage all of this functionality with familiar MCU toolchains.

  • ARM® Cortex®-M7: 3015 CoreMark
  • Wireless Interfaces: Wi-Fi®, Bluetooth®, BLE, ZigBee® and Thread™
  • Security: Ciphers, RNG, Secure RTC, eFuse, High Assurance Boot
  • SRAM: Up to 512KB Tightly Coupled Memory
  • Low-power Operation: Integrated DC/DC converter, low-power run modes
  • Development Tools: MCUXpresso, IAR, Keil®, FreeRTOS, ARM® mbed, Arduino-compatible EVK
