NXP – ‘Crossover’ processor marries high performance and integration with ease of use

NXP Semiconductors has introduced the i.MX RT1050, the first part in its new i.MX RT series of real-time applications processors. The i.MX RT1050 is the first in a series of ‘crossover processors’, which bridges the gap between traditional microcontrollers and i.MX applications processors, giving MCU users a means to gain valuable performance and integration improvements […]


NXP – Computing at the edge: a new model for connected embedded systems

Cloud computing provides a new model for the operation of embedded systems, drawing on the advantages that virtualisation, massive scale and platform service models can offer. While cloud systems are flexible, they also impose a limitation: the workload they carry must not be too sensitive to network latency or restricted bandwidth. For applications in which […]
