The i.MX 6Solo/6DualLite processors represent Freescale Semiconductor’s latest achievement in integrated multimedia-focused products offering high performance processing with lower cost, as well as optimization for low power consumption. The processors feature Freescale’s advanced implementation of single/dual ARM Cortex -A9 core, which operates at speeds of up to 1 GHz. They include 2D and 3D graphics processors, 1080p video processing, and integrated power management. Each processor provides a 32/64-bit DDR3/LVDDR3/LPDDR2-800 memory interface and a number of other interfaces for connecting peripherals, such as WLAN, Bluetooth , GPS, hard drive, displays, and camera sensors.
