NXP MCX N microcontrollers enable high performance, low power secure intelligence at the edge. The first families in the N series portfolio – MCX N94x and MCX N54x – are designed to simplify design for secure intelligent edge applications, including IoT and industrial applications. Products feature the first instantiation of firm’s proprietary Neural Processing Unit (NPU) and an integrated EdgeLock secure subsystem. MCX N series’ multicore design delivers improved system performance and reduced power consumption by enabling smart, efficient distribution of workloads to the analog and digital peripherals. Product’s dual-core system pairs a full-featured Arm Cortex-M33 core with a streamlined Cortex-M33 to manage control functions, enabling developers to run applications in parallel or reduce power consumption by turning off individual cores as necessary.
