New Product Introduction

NXP i.MX RT series

NXP i.MX RT series - Crossover processors with Arm® Cortex®-m7 core (i.MX RT1050)

NXP i.MX RT Crossover Processor

Driving the convergence of applications processors and MCUs

NXP introduces crossover processors: the convergence of low power applications processors and high performance microcontrollers. The i.MX RT Series is the industry’s first crossover processor, offering the highest performance ARM® Cortex®-M core, real-time functionality and MCU usability at an affordable price.

Products are built using i.MX technology and have performance over 600 MHz. i.MX RT series bridges the gap between the traditional MCUs and the i.MX space, allowing MCU customers a path for significant performance and integration improvements, without sacrificing ease-of-use.
