NXP unveils its newest processor, the i.MX 91, during Computex


During Computex today, the Dutch semiconductor giant NXP announced its i.MX 91the latest processor from the i.MX 9 series of application processors for industrial, medical, consumer and IoT use cases.

During his keynote, NXP Secure Connected Edge executive vice president and general manager Rafael Sotomayor provided some details about the new processor. Features include an 800 MHz Cortex-M7 chi8p for real-time monitoring and a Cortex-M33 for network management, along with integrated Gbps with support for time-sensitive networking and industrial protocols. It is secured by NPX’s EdgeLock Secure Enclave and has functional security software libraries.

A use case for the i.MX 91 is smart factories. The i.MX 91 is at the heart of NPX’s industrial platform for smart factories, connecting EdgeLock, other devices, NXP’s PF5020 (the company’s multi-channel device for power and industrial applications), and NXP’s N-Afe front-end, which connects sensors and drives actuators.

Another example of how iMX 91 can be used is smart homes. The i.MX/MCU family can be combined with NXP’s monolithic tri-radio IW612 to integrate radios into Matter, the connectivity standard designed to allow smart home devices to communicate with each other.

The i.MX 91 family is part of NXPs product life cycle program, which ensures that qualified products are available for a minimum of 10 years, with designated participating products developed for the automotive, telecom and medical segments available for a minimum of 15 years. i.MX 91 combines Arm Cortex-A55 processor cores and is integrated with EdgeLock Secure Enclave.
