The i.MX RT1020 expands the i.MX RT crossover processor families by providing high-performance feature set in low-cost LQFP packages, further simplifying board design and layout for customers. The i.MX RT1020 runs on the Arm® Cortex®-M7 core at 500 MHz.
i.MX RT Series—The Crossover Between Applications Processors & MCUs
Until recently, embedded processing fell into two distinct camps based on the necessity of the design. Situations calling for affordable and flexible usability would rely on microcontrollers (MCUs). Designs that exceeded the capacity of an MCU would instead use an applications processor.
Your motor control designs just got a whole lot smarter with one little chip
Embedded solutions for motor control have historically been a big part of what we do at NXP—going all the way back to some of our Motorola product lines. In the past, motor control applications have typically relied on the affordable and flexible usability provided by microcontrollers (MCUs).
