Imx6 - microprocessor you should know



IMX6 processor introduction:

MX6



NXP iMX6 formerly known as Freescale iMX6 is from iMX series of microprocessors from NXP. They may be basically multimedia microprocessors, their main unique feature is the low power consumption. This really is based on ARM architecture. In accordance with NXP , its target applications include Automotive infotainment, Digital signage ,E-Readers ,Human-machine interface ,Home energy management systems ,In-flight entertainment ,Intelligent industrial control systems ,IP phones ,IPTV, Portable medical devices ,Smartbooks, Tablets ,Point-of-sale devices , Digital cluster , Vehicle to vehicle connectivity , Hi fi systems systems ,Secure smart-connected devices.



IMX6 series has approximately 9 scalable families:



First is UltraLite which include Single ARM Cortex®-A7 up to 528 MHz • 128 KB L2 cache, NEON™, VFP, TrustZone® • X16 LPDDR2, DDR3/LV-DDR3 • 2X 10/100 Mb/s IEEE 1588 • 2X 12-bit ADC (1 with resistance touch control) • 10/100 Ethernet MAC .



Second is SoloLite including Single ARM, Cortex-A9 up to 1.0 GHz • 256 KB L2 cache, NEON, VFPvd16 TrustZone • 2D graphics • 32-bit DDR3 and LPDDR2 at 400 MHz • Integrated EPD controller • 10/100 Ethernet MAC .



3rd one is SoloX which include Single Cortex-A9 approximately 1.0 GHz • Single Cortex®-M4 as much as 200 MHz • 256 KB L2 cache, NEON, VFP, TrustZone • 3D and 2D graphics • 32-bit DDR3 and LPDDR2 at 400 MHz • Dual Gigabit Ethernet MAC w/ hardware AVB support • PCIe® controller plus PHY • LVDS controller plus PHY • Analog camera interface • 8-channel, 12-bit ADC • MLB and FlexCAN controllers .



4th is Solo such as Single Cortex-A9 up to 1.0 GHz • 512 KB L2 cache, NEON, VFPvd16 TrustZone • 3D graphics with one shader • 2D graphics • 32-bit DDR3 and LPDDR2 at 400 MHz • Gigabit Ethernet MAC • Integrated EPD controller • HDMIv1.4 controller plus PHY • LVDS controller plus PHY • PCIe controller plus PHY • MLB and Fle.



5th one is DualLite which include Dual Cortex-A9 up to 1.0 GHz • 512 KB L2 cache, NEON, VFPvd16 TrustZone • 3D graphics with one shader • 2D graphics • 64-bit DDR3 and 2-channel 32-bit LPDDR2 at 400 MHz • Gigabit Ethernet MAC • Integrated EPD controller • HDMIv1.4 controller plus PHY • LVDS controller plus PHY • PCIe controller plus PHY • MLB and Flex.



6th is Dual including Dual Cortex-A9 up to 1.2 GHz • 1 MB L2 cache, NEON, VFPvd16 TrustZone • 3D graphics with four shaders • Two 2D graphics engines • 64-bit DDR3 and 2-channel 32-bit LPDDR2 at 533 MHz • Gigabit Ethernet MAC • Integrated SATA-II • HDMIv1.4 controller plus PHY • LVDS controller plus PHY • PCIe controller plus PHY • MLB and FlexCAN controllers.



Remaining 3 are DualPlus , Quad and QuadPlus , not discussed here.
