Is it simply possible to replace an i.MX6Dual by an i.MX6DualPlus on an existing design ?

Dear experts


we have an existing design based on the iMX6Dual CPU. Due to increasing requirements in the video-processing we face restrictions in the memory access. We know that the performance of the iMX6DualPlus is increased and would solve our problem in an easy way if one thing is possible...


I read on your webpage the following:

The i.MX 6DualPlus family delivers dramatic graphics and memory performance enhancements and are pin-compatible with a broad range of i.MX 6 processors


Now to my questions

Will it be possible to simply replace the existing iMX6Dual by an iMX6DualPlus on an existing PCB-Design?

What do we have to check/change to do this?

Where are the risks by doing this?


Thanks for a answer.
