NXP
The convergence of low-power applications processors and high performance microcontrollers is here. The i.MX RT Series is the industry’s first crossover processor, offering the highest performance Arm® Cortex®-M core, real-time functionality and MCU usability at an affordable price.

By breaking down the technological boundaries between MCUs and the applications processors, a new class of processors that bridges the chasm between high end microcontrollers and low-end applications processors are introduced. These crossover embedded processors targeted for consumer, industrial and the growing IoT application, deliver the performance, functionality and capabilities of an applications processor-based design, but with the ease-of-use, low-power, and real-time operation with low interrupt latency of an MCU-based design.
