The IMX6: An Introduction


The IMX6 is the latest and greatest in the IMX series of SoCs from Freescale. They are available with up to eight ARM Cortex-A9 cores that can reach speeds of 1.5GHz on a 28nm process, providing more performance than any other IMX chip before it. The IMx6 also features an integrated PowerVR SGX544MP2 graphics processor, which provides high-quality 3D graphics and video playback while consuming less power than previous generation processors.

Combining a powerful CPU and GPU in one package saves designers who need both features in a small form factor. Additionally, IMX processors are built on a 28nm process node, ensuring high quality and reliability for your product.
The IMX processors also include a wide range of video codecs and image processing features, allowing you to create products with high-quality displays. The IMX family is the only one that offers integrated hardware decoding for H.265 (HEVC), meaning your product can display Ultra HD content without any dropped frames.
