This is a dual-core Arm® Cortex®-M based crossover MCU 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 RT1166 is one of the highest performing Cortex-M7/M4 solution delivering 3036 CoreMarks (when running the core at 600 MHz). In addition to the high-speed performance it provides fast real-time responsiveness and offer several low power modes.

This processor is a great upgrade option when the current microcontroller design no longer offers sufficient performance and there are reasons to not fully transfer into the Linux universe with an application processor.

Multimedia functionalities

The i.MX RT1166 has the most comprehensive multimedia functionality among our microcontroller modules including great audio, 2D vector graphics core (Open VG 1.1), pixel processing and camera sensor.

On-board Wi-Fi/BT

There is an on-board Wi-Fi/BT module mounted, Murata’s 1XK (LBEE5CJ1XK), based on NXP’s IW416 chipset. It is a dual-band Wi-Fi 4, 802.11a/b/g/n + Bluetooth 5.2 module.

Temperature Range

Our iMX RT1166 uCOM board is available in commercial / industrial temperature range, 0 to +70 / -40 to +85 degrees Celsius. The industrial (temperature range) version is suitable for always-on applications.
