Product Family Features

 

The i.MX6 series unleashes the industry’s first truly scalable multicore platform that includes single-, dual- and quad-core families based on the ARM® Cortex™-A9 architecture. Together with a robust ecosystem, i.MX6 series provides the ideal platform to develop a portfolio of end devices based on a single hardware design.

 

With high-performance multimedia processing, pin*- and software- compatible product families and integrated power management, i.MX6 series is purpose built for the new era of smart devices. *4 of 5 families are pin-compatible

 

The i.MX6 applications processor is a Energy-Efficient Solutions products.

Automotive

  • As drivers adopt personal and home-based smart devices, automotive manufacturers are bringing a similar experience in-vehicle. Able to meet demands of connectivity, real time data delivery, digital instrumentation, audio and multi-stream video, i.MX 6 series enables auto infotainment and instrument cluster designers to re-create today’s consumer technology experience in the car.

Smart Devices

  • The market for intelligent, multimedia centric, touch based devices is increasing exponentially. Not just for tablets or smartphones anymore, tomorrow's battery powered Smart Devices, Aero Infotainment systems, medical systems, enterprise-class intelligent control and data systems all must present data and user interface choices to the end user primarily through rich sound, video, voice, pictures and touch, rather than keyboards and mice. i.MX 6 series enables developers to deliver a more seamless natural user interface (NUI) experience, plus save time and costs by leveraging one design across a portfolio of devices.
