This session will focus on the memory choices for several of the more popular i.MX 6 and i.MX 7 series as well as NXP’s newest and most powerful microprocessor, the i.MX 8 series. Most processors can support different types of volatile (DRAM) and non-volatile (Flash) memories. For example, the i.MX 7 can support low power DRAM (LPDDR), LPDDR2 and LPDDR3 as well as the standard DDR3 memory. For flash memories, the i.MX 7 supports parallel NOR, serial NOR or NAND Flash. Each of these memory choices has technical advantages and disadvantages as well as the overall market acceptance and expected longevity. The session will also discuss two new high performance memory technologies that the i.MX 8 plans to support, LPDDR4 and XTRMFlash. This session will allow you, the designer to make an informed decision when it comes to selecting memory for your design.
