i.MX RT1050: High-Performance Processor with Real-Time Functionality

NXP's crossover processor is designed to support next-gen IoT applications with a high level of integration and security

Image of NXP's i.MX RT1050 High Preformance ProcessorNXP's i.MX RT1050 is built upon decades of leadership experience in providing both MCUs and applications processors for the consumer, industrial, and the IoT markets. NXP has developed a series of embedded processors that fully embodies the best of two worlds: applications processors and microcontrollers.

The i.MX RT1050 crossover processors are based on Arm® Cortex®-M7 core, and offer twice the performance and twice the level of integration compared to other solutions.

The i.MX RT1050 processors are the first solutions in the market that truly bridge the gap between MCUs and applications processors. 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.

The i.MX RT1050 crossover processors are designed to support the next generation IoT applications with a high level of integration and security, balanced with MCU-level usability at an affordable price.

The i.MX RT1050 is the first product to launch within the NXP i.MX RT series.
