The i.MX 6Quad, i.MX 6Dual, i.MX 6DualLite, and i.MX 6Solo families of applications processors represent Freescale Semiconductor’s ARM CortexTM-A9 based multimedia-focused products that offer high performance processing with a high degree of functional integration and are optimized for low power consumption. Each processor provides a DDR3/LV-DDR3/LPDDR2 memory interface and a number of other interfaces for connecting peripherals, such as WLAN, BluetoothTM, GPS, hard drive, displays, and camera sensors.
The i.MX 6Dual/6Quad and i.MX 6Solo/6DualLite processors have similar features and implementation. Their similar implementation makes possible the hardware migration of these processors from one processor type to another. This application note explains how to achieve a common hardware design for i.MX 6Dual/6Quad and i.MX 6Solo/6DualLite.
