NXP Introduces Industry’s Lowest Power ARM Cortex-A7 Based Processor to Fuel Growth of the Internet of Things

New addition to the successful i.MX 6 series provides exceptional power and performance features at breakthrough prices

SHENZHEN, China, Sept. 26, 2016 - (NXP FTF CHINA) - At NXP FTF China today, NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI), officially announced the i.MX 6ULL applications processor which delivers up to 30 percent more power efficiency than its nearest competitors. The i.MX 6ULL was specifically designed for value-conscious engineers and developers working on cost-effective solutions for the growing IoT consumer and industrial, mass markets. The processor features secure encryption, advanced implementation of a single ARM® Cortex®-A7 core, provides various memory interfaces and includes an integrated power management module to reduce complexity.

“i.MX 6ULL maximizes cost efficiency, ease of use and low power – all of which are essential for innovative Internet of Things applications,” said Geoff Lees, senior vice president and general manager of the microcontroller business line at NXP. “The combination of better performance with aggressive pricing allows customers to deliver better digital interface experiences.”

i.MX 6ULL Features

This latest addition to the i.MX 6 series introduces a single Cortex-A7 processor core running up to 528 MHz with 128 KB of L2 cache and 16-bit DDR3/LPDDR2 support. Its integrated power management, security unit and wide range of connectivity interfaces, provides new ways to address performance scalability and low power for secure IoT applications. The i.MX 6ULL processor has compatible and scalable package options including the 14 x 14mm, ideal for simple and low-cost PCB design, and the 9 x 9mm, offering a smaller form factor for space-constrained applications.

“This product provides a natural upgrade from the previous ARM7 and ARM9 based architecture to a more power efficient, Cortex-A class core,” said George Zhou, President of ZLG Electronics Corporation. “The feature set, price point and power efficiency of i.MX 6ULL will enable us to develop the next generation smart grid monitoring system for all of China.”

Pricing and Availability

The i.MX 6ULL applications processor will start at $3.50 USD in 10,000 unit quantities. The i.MX 6ULL applications processor is sampling now and is expected to be in full production in October 2016 along with the GA release of the Linux BSP. The i.MX 6ULL processor is supported by the i.MX 6ULL evaluation kit that includes a CPU module and a base board. A training class and demonstration of the i.MX 6ULL processor and EVK will be given during NXP FTF China. For more information, please visit  www.nxp.com/iMX6ULL.

i.MX 6 Series Applications Processors

The i.MX 6 series of applications processors is a feature and performance scalable multicore platform that includes single-, dual- and quad-core families based on the ARM® Cortex® architecture, including Cortex-A9, combined Cortex-A9 + Cortex-M4 and Cortex-A7 based solutions up to 1.2 GHz. The series combines broad levels of integration and power-efficient processing capabilities all the way up to 3D and 2D graphics, as well as high-definition video and targets consumer, industrial and automotive applications.
