LXer: Freescales popular i.MX6 SoC sprouts a Cortex-M4 MCU

Published at LXer:

Freescale added a “6SoloX” SoC to its Cortex-A9 i.MX6 family, featuring a Cortex-M4 MCU, plus new security, power management, and GbE bridging features. The hybrid CPU/MCU i.MX 6SoloX system-on-chip design resembles Freescale Semiconductor’s earlier Vybrid F Series SoC, which pairs a Linux-ready Cortex-A5 core with a Cortex-M4 based Kinetis MCU running Freescale’s MQX RTOS. The 6SoloX also incorporates a Cortex-M4 running MQX, clocked at 200MHz, which is touted for its deterministic, real-time responsiveness. But instead of the Vybrid’s Cortex-A5 CPU, the i.MX6 series SoCs pack a 1GHz Cortex-A9 core that runs Linux or Android.
