i.MX RT1050

NXP's Crossover Processor: High performance with real-time functionality


  • High Performance Real-time Processing
  • High Levels of Integration
  • Low BOM Cost
  • Easy to Use

Building upon decades of leadership in providing both MCUs and applications processors, NXP has developed a new series of embedded processors that fully embodies the best of two worlds: Application processor and Microcontrollers.

The new i.MX RT1050 crossover processors are based on Arm® Cortex®-M7, and offer twice the performance and twice the level of integration compared to other solutions. They bring applications processor-level performance into the MCU world in support of real-time, performance-intensive processing functions such as camera and display capabilities, at an affordable price
