A lot of discussion recently has been around the i.MX RT1010 crossover MCU -and why not? It is the latest and greatest achievement for high-end crossover MCUs. But, you probably noticed that the i.MX RT1010 MCU left off some features in order to keep the cost low. So, what if you need a high performance MCU with all the bells and whistles?
One of my favorite assets online is the i.MX RT Crossover MCU Fact Sheet, which includes a feature table for both the silicon and the EVKs. A snippet of the silicon feature table is below and the entire fact sheet can be downloaded here: https://www.nxp.com/docs/en/fact-sheet/IMXRTPORTFS.pdfhttps://www.nxp.com/docs/en/fact-sheet/IMXRTPORTFS.pdf
For customers looking for a feature-rich MCU to enable next-generation HMI design, the i.MX RT1060 is a great choice with features such as parallel camera interface, dedicated LCD controller (up to WXGA 1366x768) and the PXP for 2D graphics acceleration. The PXP is a high-performance pixel processor capable of 1 pixel/clock performance for combined operations, such as color-space conversion, alpha blending, and rotation. The PXP is also enhanced with features specifically for gray scale applications. In addition, the PXP supports traditional pixel/frame processing paths for still-image and video processing applications.
