Linux on ARMFreescale’s dual- and quad-core “Plus” i.MX6 SoCs boost graphic performance and RAM support, while the single-core Cortex-A7 “UltraLite” targets secure IoT.

Freescale Semiconductor announced three new versions of its popular i.MX6 SoCs, all of which will be backed with Linux BSPs and evaluation kits. The new i.MX6 DualPlus and i.MX6 QuadPlus system-on-chips offer optimized GPUs and memory support, but keep the same 21 x 21mm packages, and remain with the same allotment of Cortex-A9 cores. They offer full software and pin compatibility with earlier i.MX6 models, says Freescale.
