i.MX RT Series

i.MX RT series is NXP’s line of real-time crossover processors. Products are built using i.MX technology and have performance over 600 MHz. The wider Cortex-M portfolio from NXP is still readily available and continues to grow, especially within the popular LPC and Kinetis portfolios of microcontrollers. Products are built using i.MX technology with the ARM(R) Cortex(R)-M7 core running at 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.
