Freescale added a “6SoloX” SoC to its Cortex-A9 i.MX6 family, featuring a Cortex-M4 MCU, plus new security, power management, and GbE bridging features. The hybrid CPU/MCU i.MX 6SoloX system-on-chip design resembles Freescale Semiconductor’s earlier Vybrid F Series SoC, which pairs a Linux-ready Cortex-A5 core with a Cortex-M4 based Kinetis MCU running Freescale’s MQX RTOS.
