The i.MX53 applications processor is a Freescale Energy-Efficient Solutions product.

Consumer applications

  • The i.MX535 is the first i.MX processor to support 1080p multi-standard video playback with industry-leading low power consumption. With up to 1.2 GHz core speed, a faster graphics core enabling a more responsive user experience, and higher level of system integration, the i.MX535 leverages a common hardware and software platform with the i.MX51 to boost performance with reduced development effort and faster time to market.

Automotive applications

  • Freescale's automotive i.MX53 processors provide the advanced performance required to drive the latest automotive systems. These processors are designed for applications that require advanced user interfaces, sophisticated video processing, 2D and 3D graphics, multiple connectivity options and a high level of system integration. Building on the success of the i.MX515 and i.MX535 in the consumer market, the automotive family of i.MX53 processors brings the consumer electronics user experience and device connectivity into the vehicles of the future.

Industrial applications

  • The i.MX537, with core processing speeds up to 800 MHz, is optimized for both performance and power to meet the demands of high-end, advanced industrial and medical applications. Integrated display controller, 1080p HD video decode and 720p video encode, enhanced graphics and connectivity features make the i.MX537 suitable for a wide range of applications such as human machine interfaces (HMIs) and patient monitors which require rich user interfaces with high color displays and user interaction. The i.MX537 provides key environmental differentiators for the industrial market. These include 3.3V I/O support, a 0.8 mm pitch package to reduce PCB and manufacturing costs, extended temperature coverage for harsh environments, industrial qualification for extended reliability and a formal long product supply guarantee to support product life spans.
