In response to the needs of design engineers tasked with pushing the performance envelope, packing in a lot of connectivity options and providing robust security in mobile device designs, Freescale presents the i.MX27 multimedia applications processor. Derived from the popular i.MX21 processor and based on the ARM926EJ-S™ core, the i.MX27 processor adds an h.264 D1 hardware codec for high-resolution video processing, an Ethernet 10/100 MAC, security, plug-and-play connectivity and more power management features. This rich feature set makes it an excellent choice for video- and voiceover- IP (V2IP) cordless and mobile phones, intelligent remote controls, point-of-sale terminals and many other wireless applications.
The i.MX27 is supported by a companion Freescale power management IC (PMIC), MC13892.
There are no plans to release WinCE 5.0 for the i.MX27 (alphas, betas, and patches have only been released). Instead, we have a full version of WinCE 6.0 for the i.MX27 ADS board. If you have any issues, please contact your local sales/marketing representative.
