The i.MX 7 series is a highly integrated multi-market applications processor designed to enable secure and portable applications within the Internet of Things. The i.MX 7 series is the first device in the market utilizing both the ARM® Cortex®-A7 and Cortex-M4 cores for general purpose programmable processing. Its heterogeneous asymmetric architecture provides the ultimate flexibility for customers by enabling a single-chip solution that can run sophisticated operating systems and provide real-time responsiveness. The i.MX 7 series incorporates four independently controlled resource domains for maximum effectiveness and security when partitioning system resources such as memory and peripherals.
