i.MX 6 Series Processors


The i.MX 6 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, the i.MX 6 series provides the ideal platform to develop a portfolio of end devices based on a single hardware design. The i.MX 6 series expansion plan includes an ARM Cortex-A9 plus an Cortex-M4 core for fast and predictable heterogeneous processing.

With high-performance multimedia processing, pin*- and software- compatible product families and integrated power management, the i.MX 6 series is purpose built for the new era of smart devices.

*Four of five families are pin-compatible

The i.MX 6 applications processor is a Freescale Energy-Efficient Solutions product.

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, the 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. The 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.
