i.MX 8M Ecosystem Ready for Prime Time: Enriched User Interface, Connectivity, High Performance

i.MX 8M Ecosystem Ready for Prime Time: Enriched User Interface, Connectivity, High Performance

During Embedded World last year, I had the opportunity to write a blog about how we are collaborating with several leading embedded design companies to develop a robust ecosystem for the i.MX 8M applications processor.

Now, this year at Embedded World, we are delivering on that vision and are excited to announce the i.MX 8M family is fully available to the general market and our partners’ solutions are ready.

With the transformation generated by our personal devices, new standards of rich user interfaces are being demanded also for general market and industrial applications. The Smart IoT demands high-speed connectivity, smartness performance without compromising power as well as a new level of user interfaces.

The IoT continues to push general and industrial markets to develop new levels of high-speed connectivity and performance — while also providing the rich user interfaces that their users demand.

These solutions help embedded designers to meet those objectives. We’re pleased to provide a quick overview of the offerings. Or, if you’re at Embedded World, stop by our booth and see the solutions in action!
