“Prior to this, there weren’t any viable processing solutions that addressed voice, video and audio requirements without being overkill,” said Martyn Humphries, vice president of consumer and industrial applications processors at NXP. “With i.MX 8M, customers can get the exact solution for their specific A/V and versatility needs.”
The i.MX 8 applications processor is highly scalable with a pin- and power-compatible package and software support. The i.MX 8 multi-sensory enablement kit (MEK) is now available to prototype i.MX 8M systems. Limited sampling of i.MX 8M will begin in the second quarter of 2017, and general availability is expected in the fourth quarter of 2017.
