The i. MX range is a family of Freescale Semiconductor now part of NXP proprietary microcontrollers for multimedia applications based on the ARM architecture and focused on low-power consumption. MX application processors are SoCs System-on-Chip , that integrate many processing units into one die, like the main CPU, a video processing unit and a graphics processing unit for instance. MX products are qualified for automotive, industrial and consumer markets. Most of them are guaranteed for a production lifetime of 10 to 15 years. MX originally stood for "innovative Multimedia eXtension".

MX27 pushes advanced video and graphics to a new level for our customers' mobile applications," said Berardino Baratta, general manager of Freescale's multimedia application division. Building on the success of the i.

MX21, the i. MX27 moves us another step closer to delivering true HD-quality video solutions for mobile and handheld applications. Moving one step closer to HD is achieved via an integrated enhanced multimedia hardware accelerator eMMA in i.

The eMMA performs all of the complex pre- and post-video processing including deblock, dering, color space conversion, zoom and image scaling in parallel to video encoding and decoding. The i. MX27 provides designers greater flexibility with an abundance of connectivity options and serial and expansion ports. MX27 multimedia applications processor is architected with Freescale's Smart Speed technology, an intelligent integrative approach that uses hardware accelerators to offload the CPU and a crossbar switch to bring parallelism to the system.

The result is a processor that performs with a much higher clock speed, but conserves power for extended battery life. New to the i. MX27 is Freescale's innovative Dynamic Process Temperature Compensation DPTC mechanism that lowers the voltage to the minimum level needed to support the current operating frequency, saving up to 50 percent on power consumption.

MX27 also offers a variety of power saving modes, giving designers the ability to make trade-offs between power consumption in stand-by and recovery times. MX27 incorporates Freescale's Platform Independent Security Architecture, a combination of security features that provides a high level of confidence for carriers, content providers and consumers. For carriers, the security architecture provides protection features to help guard against malicious service attacks, theft of services, configuration protection and concerns with cloning.

For content providers, it helps block illegal access to licensed content, thereby protecting against unauthorized use and distribution.

And for consumers, private data is designed to be inaccessible, helping protect against identify theft. MX27 is sampling in limited quantities now. Volume production is slated for the first quarter of Freescale Semiconductor, Inc. B is a global leader in the design and manufacture of embedded semiconductors for the automotive, consumer, industrial, networking and wireless markets. Freescale became a publicly traded company in July The company is based in Austin, Texas, and has design, research and development, manufacturing or sales operations in more than 30 countries.
