- Heterogeneous Multicore Processor (HMP)
- Optimized for power efficiency - suitable for connected and portable applications
- 2x Cortex-A7 @ 1 GHz and Cortex-M4 @ 200 MHz
This application processor module is optimized for applications that require low-power consumption and multimedia capabilities.
Heterogeneous Multicore Processing (HMP)
The i.MX 7Dual processor comes with two Cortex-A7 cores and one Cortex-M4 core. This combination of different cores allows a feature rich OS, like Linux, to run on the Cortex-A cores while a Real-Time OS such as FreeRTOS can run on the Cortex-M4 core.

Compact form factor, 82×50 mm, using the proven MXM3 connector.
Power Optimized Design
Combining the processor with DDR3L memory and an efficient PMIC results in a very low power module.
The HMP architecture can reduce the power even more by letting the Cortex-A7 cores sleep until needed. The Cortex-M4 can wake them up on demand.
The module is based on NXP’s energy efficient i.MX 7Dual processor which has two Cortex-A7 cores capable at running up to 1 GHz and one Cortex-M4 core capable at running up to 200 MHz.
The iMX7 Dual COM Board is available in extended and commercial temperature ranges, -20 to +85 / 0 to 70 degrees Celsius, respectively. The industrial (temperature range) version is suitable for always-on applications.
