EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, Oct. 15, 2020 – NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:
NXPI) today announced that its
i.MX applications processors
are now supported within its i.MX BSP software to dramatically simplify
product development and provide a new level of integration as NXP continues to
expand the connectivity capabilities of its
edge computing and security platform. By integrating the NXP ‘One Driver’ into
the i.MX board support package (BSP), NXP is providing developers with
flexible and scalable platforms to help accelerate compliance, significantly
shorten time-to-market and streamline Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo deployments. These
new platforms make it possible to mix and match the right MPU and
Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo devices to provide developers with the flexibility
needed to meet the performance and power requirements of their IoT,
industrial, automotive, and communications infrastructure applications.
Linux/Android Board Support Package (BSP)
NXP has integrated its Wi-Fi/Bluetooth drivers and communications stacks with
i.MX applications SoCs to simplify and accelerate application development. By
using the Linux/Android BSPs, developers can easily combine wireless
connectivity with i.MX applications processor capabilities. The pre-integrated
Wi-Fi/Bluetooth drivers have been verified and tested to deliver several
useful examples, including:
- iPerf utility to test device-to-device performance.
Wi-Fi provisioning example for easily connecting new devices to networks.
Command Line Interface (CLI) to set Wi-Fi parameters and network properties
and experiment with various Wi-Fi settings/parameters.
Amazon Web Services to use as a framework for IoT products as well as
device, gateway, phone, and cloud connection examples.
Module Partners – The Path to Production
NXP has partnered with leading module vendors, around the world, including
Panasonic, and u-blox to deliver
fully certified, platform-integrated modules for developer designs. With
additional partners being added throughout the year, NXP’s broad range of
module suppliers adds more flexibility for developers to choose the best
module for their application and reduce the design complexity, development
costs, and the time to certification.
The i.MX applications processors are the
latest series of edge processing product lines
to be supported by NXP’s Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo connectivity
solutions, which are now available through NXP’s module partners and NXP’s
global mass market and distribution network, including Arrow, Avnet, Future,
EBV, Mouser, Digikey, E14, and WT Micro. Learn more at
