Freescale NXP i.MX6 processor

The i.MX6 series from Freescale - now NXP - includes single, dual and quad core processors of the latest generation based on the ARM Cortex-A9 architecture. The main fields of application are consumer, industrial and automotive applications. The combination of power-saving ARM Cortex-A9 architecture and high multimedia performance, such as the comprehensive 3D and 2D graphics properties, is particularly noticeable in graphics applications, for example in high-resolution video applications.
