Our expertise with NXP processors and Freescale processors

Information about NXP i.MX27 / Freescale i.MX27

With the development of the NXP i.MX27 (previously Freescale i.MX27), the developers' needs have been met to the greatest extent for adequate performance and connectivity.

As a derivative of the popular i.MX21 processor and based on the ARM926EJ-S™ core, the NXP i.MX27 processor (previously Freescale i.MX27) is suitable for the development of multimedia applications. The i.MX27 processor has a h.264 D1 hardware codec for high resolution video processing, an Ethernet 10/100 MAC, a sophisticated power management and many other helpful features.

This makes the NXP i.MX27 a great choice for video applications, voice over IP (V2IP) applications, as well as for the development of cordless phones and mobile phones. Further application areas are intelligent remote controllers, point-of-sale terminals and all other wireless applications.
