Energy efficient, scalable processors feature easy-to-deploy security
NXP SEMICONDUCTORS EdgeVerse crossover applications processors include i.MX 8ULP and i.MX 8ULP-CS (cloud secured) Microsoft Azure Sphere-certified families, as well as next-generation i.MX 9 series of high performance intelligent applications processors. Line expansion includes new innovations with EdgeLock secure enclave to enhance edge security and Energy Flex architecture to maximize energy efficiency. In the i.MX 8ULP and i.MX 8ULP-CS families, the Energy Flex architecture delivers as much as 75% improved energy efficiency than its predecessor by uniquely combining heterogeneous domain processing, design techniques and 28nm FD-SOI process technology. Embedded in these processors is a programmable power management subsystem that can govern more than 20 different power mode configurations to deliver exceptional energy efficiency – from full power to as low as 30 microwatts. Using this range of flexible configurations, OEMs and developers can customize application-specific power profiles to maximize energy efficiency.
