Crossover embedded processors are an exciting development for connected device designers. These processors are bridging the gap between performance and usability enabling enhanced functionality. So while crossover MCUs are built with an MCU core, they architected to deliver the high performance and functional capabilities of applications processors, without losing the ease-of-use and real-time low-power operation of a traditional MCU.
This intersection of performance and usability features allow crossover solutions to target a range of specific applications that were previously underserved in some capacities by both applications processor and MCU products. The i.MX RT1170 MCU is a perfect platform to run complex Bluetooth and Wi-Fi use cases and in this video we will be giving a glimpse of one of these possibilities, the IoT gateway.
