NXP i.MX RT1170 Family Introduction
The i.MX RT1170 is a new high-end processor of the i.MX RT family, which features NXP’s advanced implementation of a high-performance Arm Cortex®-M7 core operating at speeds up to 800 MHz and a power-efficient Cortex®-M4 core up to 400 MHz.
The i.MX RT1170 processor has 2 MB on-chip RAM in total, including a 768 KB RAM which can be flexibly configured as TCM (512 KB RAM shared with M7 TCM and 256 KB RAM shared with M4 TCM) or general-purpose on-chip RAM. The i.MX RT1170 integrates an advanced power management module with DCDC and LDO regulators that reduce the complexity of the external power supply and simplify power sequencing.
The i.MX RT1170 also provides various memory interfaces, including SDRAM, RAW NAND FLASH, NOR FLASH, SD/eMMC, Quad/Octal SPI, Hyper RAM/Flash, and a wide range of other interfaces for connecting peripherals, such as WLAN, Bluetooth™, GPS, displays, and camera sensors. The i.MX RT1170 also has rich audio and video features, including MIPI CSI/DSI, LCD display, graphic accelerator, camera interface, SPDIF, and I2S audio interface.
The i.MX RT1170 is specifically useful for applications such as:
• Industrial Human Machine Interfaces (HMI)
• Motor Control
• Home Appliance
• High-end Audio Appliance
• Low-end Instrument Cluster
• Point-of-Sale (PoS)
EMAC, Inc. is a global leader in custom industrial microcontroller embedded system design. These systems have migrated just microcontrollers into the IoT domain with Industrial IoT or IIOT as their new family classification. Custom Microcontrollers are an ideal alternative to custom Single Board Computers; when low power consumption, data aggregation, and minimal processing are needed without the overhead of a high-level operating system. A microcontroller is best able to collect digital and analog data inputs while also incorporating specialized sensors (temperature, Shock, Sound, G-sensor, GPS location, and others) then monitor these inputs and report changes. Multiple microcontrollers can collect send data to an IOT Edge computer, directly to a Cloud computer or upload to a Cloud service providing secure access to your data anywhere in the world. Generally, EMAC can get a project started developing with a similar CoTS Configured-off-The-Shelf product; while we design a new board to best fit the project needs. This approach to custom board design helps solidify a product design before a product is committed to being built, allowing customization to best suit the actual project needs.
EMAC can provide software Board Support Packages (BSPs) for our Single Board Computers (SBCs) using your choice of compatible Embedded Operating Systems. Integration of the single board computer into an enclosure, adding memory, CPU, Wireless (WiFi, Bluetooth or Mesh), storage solution & loading an OS, in most cases is free with the purchase of the Single Board Computer and related components. Additionally, EMAC has LCD- Panel Kits with Touchscreen options, allowing our Single Board Computer Solutions to utilize an LCD for video output and a touchscreen replacement of a mouse for input.
The LCD Panel Kit with the Touchscreen option in conjunction with the Flash Disk, makes for a Solid State Embedded computer system that is ideal for rugged, wide temperature, and low downtime environments. If you cannot find exactly what you need from our large Off-The-Shelf selection, EMAC can potentially customize any hardware or software component, and additionally offer driver development and software application programming, providing you with the perfect fit for their SBC application needs. EMAC can provide Enclosures, I/O Modules, Peripherals, Memory, and Operating Systems for most of our x86 and ARM SBCs to make them into fully embedded systems.
EMAC supports and can install the following Embedded Operating Systems on Hard Drive or Flash Disk: >MicroPython, FreeRTOS, EMAC OE Embedded Linux, Xenomi Development Framework, ROMDOS, Windows CE, and Windows Embedded Standard, Windows 10 IoT or Windows 10 IoT Core.
