NXP crossover processor on FD-SOI will be even more spectacular (EETimes)


When the next generation of NXP’s ground-breaking  “crossover processors” come out in 2018,  they  “…will use a fabric of i.MX 7 and 8 processors manufactured by using a 28-nm FDSOI process,” and they “…will be more spectacular and complex.”  That’s what NXP’s senior vice president and general manager of microcontrollers Geoff Lees recently told EETimes International Correspondent, Junko Yoshida (see the full article here).

NXP announced the i.MX RT series  during ARM Techcon (see press release here). Essentially they represent a convergence between application processors and MCUs.  With the high performance and functional capabilities of applications processors, but with the ease-of-use and real-time deterministic operation of traditional MCUs, NXP sees applications in audio subsystems, consumer and healthcare, home and building automation, industrial computing, motor control and power conversion.
