- Temperature Range – 0 to 70°C or -40 to 85°C
The company provides a FreeRTOS BSP, as well as an iMX RT1064 uCOM developer’s kit for development. I understand i.MX RT1064 is very similar to i.MX RT1062 processor found in Teensy 4.1 with the main difference being the 4GB on-chip QSPI flash. Just like with other i.MX RT processors, the solution is best suited for fast applications requiring real-time response with ultra-low latency as well as application processor level of performance.
The iMX RT1064 uCOM module is at the sampling stage and will become broadly available in mid-December 2020. Visit the product page for more details.
