What Kinetis M4 would you use knowing the source had to migrate to i.MX6 SoloX?

We are currently evaluating and developing on the Kinetis K64.  Eventually, due to 5 year road map considerations, we would like to migrate the K64 binary over to an i.MX6 SoloX so that we can maintain the network with a Linux OS.  The real time functionality would stay intact and port over easily to the M4 core on the SoloX.

Is this even possible with the K64's or any of the Kinetis ARM M4's?  If so, which aligns best with the SoloX's M4?

No. They are not binary compatible.

At least they have different memory maps.

You will need to compile the binaries again during the migration.

Have a great day,

As Victor said, you'll have to recompile.  As long as you use an OS that runs on the M4 on both the Kinetis and the M4 SoloX core, plus stick to standard C and don't hardcode addresses porting should be a pretty easy: You'd have to change the BSP but none of your app code.
