CAAM features

Hi everyone,

I am studying the CAAM capabilities and performances on the iMX6 processor family. (In particular iMX6S, iMX6SX and iMX6Q).

Note that the CAAM runs in bare-metal applications (without any OS) on my boards.


  • I would like to know where is localized the CAAM in the SoC?
  • What is its clock /frequency ? Which PLL manages it ? Is the same clock for the CPU and the CAAM ?

        Is it possible to tune it ?

  • It is possible to get a performances benchmark of the differents crypto algorithms (AES, RSA, SHA...)
  • What is its hardware features ? Temperature, resistance ?



I've already read

- i.MX 6Solo/6DualLite Applications Processor Reference Manual (IMX6SDLRM.pdf)

- i.MX 6 Series Thermal Management Guidelines (AN4579.pdf)


Is there others interestings documents ?

Anyone could give some informations ?


Thank you for your help,


Fabien M.
