Freescale introduced the i.MX536 and i.MX534, expanded version of its i.MX53 processor (based on 800 MHz ARM Cortex-A8 core), specifically designed for automotive multimedia applications. The i.MX534 offers dual graphics processors for rendering of 2D needles and 3D images. The i.MX536 adds a dedicated hardware video processor capable of full 1080p video decode and 720p encode.

i.MX536 and i.MX534 Automotive Processors include a 400MHz external memory interface that supports low power DDR2, common DDR2 and DDR3 memories. The dual parallel display ports and on board LVDS interface enable dual display applications. High performance multichannel audio and audio mixing applications are enabled via enhanced serial audio interface technology, multiple I2S I/O ports and a hardware based asynchronous sample rate converter.

Benefits of i.MX536 and i.MX534 Automotive Processors:

  • High-performance processing and multimedia capabilities
  • Complete hardware and software package provided to enable faster time to market and lower R&D investment
  • Dedicated video and graphics hardware acceleration provides best in class performance for applications such as Adobe Flash 10.1 acceleration
  • Full HD 1080p decode and HD 720p encode capability supported in hardware, off loading the ARM core for other applications
  • Independent OpenGL ES and OpenVG graphics engines for the ultimate in information display flexibility
