PROCESSORS FOR ULTRA-LOW-POWER PORTABLES WITH RICH GRAPHICS

15-08-2019

i.MX 7ULP applications processors from NXP Semiconductors are available from Mouser Electronics. Based on fully depleted silicon on insulator (FD-SOI) technology, these devices support ultra-low-power performance and rich graphics for applications such as portable medical devices, smart home controls, wearable devices, gaming accessories, and portable printers and scanners.

These processors are based on Arm Cortex-A7 and Cortex-M4 cores with separate isolated domains, and include both 3D and 2D graphics processing units. These cores enable the devices to run a rich operating system like Linux on the Cortex-A7 core and a real-time operating system like FreeRTOS on the Cortex-M4 core.

These versatile processors provide 32Kbyte of L1 cache instruction memory, 32Kbyte of L1 cache data memory and 256Kbyte of L2 cache, as well as 512Kbyte of SRAM. They also support up to 32-bit LPDDR2/LPDDR3 memory interfaces, GPIO, I2C, SPI, UART and USB interface types. They offer a deep sleep suspend power consumption of just 50µW in optimised configurations, while low leakage and operating voltage scalability are delivered via reverse and forward body biasing of the transistors.

Also in stock is the i.MX 7ULP evaluation kit. Containing a system-on-module (SOM) board that connects to an associated baseboard, this kit enables out-of-the-box startup and supports reconfiguration for MIPI displays. The SOM provides 1GByte of LPDDR3, 8MByte of Quad SPI flash, a Micro SD 3.0 card socket, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, USB 2.0 OTG with Type C connector, and an NXP PF1550 power management IC. The baseboard offers expanded capabilities, including audio codec, an HDMI connector, multiple sensors and a full SD/MMC 3.0 card socket. The kit also includes a bootable SD card preinstalled with a Linux operating system. For additional evaluation, Mouser also stocks the NXP i.MX7ULP1 MIPI display touch panel.
