This is a crossover option for applications where you want to combine the usability and real-time processing of a microcontroller with the high performance and multimedia functionality of an application processor.
Real time processing and high-speed performance
The i.MX RT1062 is the highest performing Cortex-M7 solution delivering 3036 CoreMarks (when running core at 600 MHz), which is 13 times better than the LPC1788 microcontroller. In addition to the high-speed performance it provides fast real-time responsiveness.-
This is a great option when microcontrollers no longer offers sufficient performance and there are reasons to not fully transfer into the Linux universe with an application processor.
The i.MX RT1062 has the most comprehensive multimedia functionality among our microcontroller modules including great audio, 2D video accelerator, pixel processing and camera sensor.
The iMX RT1062 OEM board is available in industrial temperature range, -40 to +85 degrees Celsius. The industrial (temperature range) version is suitable for always-on applications.
