Secure, Energy-Efficient Application Processors Optimised for Edge-Located Applications

09 June 2023

NXP has given out further details about its recently-announced i.MX 91 family of application processors.

Using these highly cost-effective processor devices, design engineers will be able to rapidly develop Linux-based edge hardware - for use in home automation, building control, IIoT, EV charging, metering systems, smart factories, healthcare, etc. Each boasts an Arm Cortex-A55 core running at speeds of up to 1.4GHz. LPDDR4 memory resources are also incorporated, as well as dual Gbit Ethernet and USB interfacing. Thanks to the inclusion of EdgeLock secure enclave technology, a wealth of security features can be benefitted from - such as tamper detection, secure boot, etc. Evaluation kits and software packages supporting the i.MX 91 family integrate with NXP’s wireless solutions portfolio - which as well as Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2, also covers 802.15.4 (Zigbee, 6LoWPAN and the emerging Matter protocol).  

“Our new i.MX 91 family will provide the foundation for thousands of new device classes, with its high performance, connectivity and EdgeLock secure enclave setting a new standard for Linux platforms across IoT and industrial applications,” states Charles Dachs, SVP for Industrial & IoT Edge at NXP.
