SECO's roadmap from NXP i.MX 6 to i.MX 8M
Amongst the most important innovations, SECO introduces an updated version of its Q7-928, a Qseven(r) standard module featuring the NXP(r) i.MX 6DualPlus applications processor that offers top computational and graphical performances given by the low-power consuming ARM architecture. The i.MX 6DualPlus processor is also an option for the SBC-A62-J, a low-end Single Board Computer that exploits the potential of a configurable expansion connector to fully meet the configuration flexibility needs. Both solutions can now benefit from the increased performances and enhanced 3D graphics delivered by the i.MX 6DualPlus processor.
SECO, an NXP Semiconductor Proven Partner, is also one of the early access partners working with NXP on the i.MX 8M applications processor to design innovative and scalable solutions for next-generation embedded applications. SECO’s roadmap envisages the development of the NXP i.MX 8M µQseven module: a small sized-solution for applications like domotics or vending, requiring enhanced security, wide connectivity, advanced multimedia and a dedicated core for real-time response.
“NXP realizes that one of the keys to success for the i.MX 8M processor is enabling an active ecosystem so a wide range of customers can achieve a faster time to market,” said Robert Thompson, i.MX Ecosystem Manager at NXP. “Seco, with its long history of high performance i.MX modules and boards, was a perfect fit to be an early development partner and facilitate a wide range of customers to design in the full multimedia potential of the i.MX 8M.”
