The i.MX 91 family of applications processors enables the rapid creation of new Linux®️-based edge devices, such as smart home controllers, connected appliances, home entertainment, industrial and medical platforms. Emerging protocols, such as Matter™️ for the smart home or the ISO 15118-20 standard for electric vehicle (EV) chargers, create inflection points for new product categories across IoT and industrial markets.
Uppsala, Sweden. IAR is now supporting NXP Semiconductors’ S32M2 motor control for software-defined electric vehicles within its IAR Embedded Workbench for Arm. According to IAR, the solution provides a next level compiler and debugger for S32M2 devices that are based on Arm Cortex-M microcontroller cores. Integrated within the C/C++ suite is also the ability to monitor power consumption for more sustainable options.
It’s the little things in life, right? In the case of NXP’s new top-side cooling for RF power, that’s exactly right.
With recent industry-wide component shortages wreaking havoc on electronics production worldwide, many companies in the embedded space turned to the use of SOMs, or system-on-modules rather than continue sourcing individual components for their products.
NXP’s NHS52Sx4 family of ultra-low-power MCUs is aimed squarely at battery powered, miniaturized wearable medical devices thanks to its high level of integration and versatile battery support.
Smartphones have become ubiquitous, in everyone’s pocket, purse, and backpack, displacing many other household items. We rely on them for everything from email, banking, unlocking our front door, and even making the occasional phone call. Yet a quick glance around our homes and businesses will quickly reveal two things smartphones have yet to displace- buttons and a seven-segment display.
During Computex 2023, Variscite displayed a working VAR-SOM-MX91 as NXP was announcing the i.MX 91 SoC. The SoC features an Arm Cortex-A55 running at 1.4GHz, and supports 2GB LPDDR4 memory, dual Gigabit Ethernet, dual USB, dual CAN-FD, audio in/out, ADC, certified single or dual-band Wi-Fi, BT/BLE. Also included is a display output with integrated EdgeLock Secure Enclave and industrial temperature grade for embedded applications such as IoT, smart home, connected sensors, industrial controllers, and metering.
