Battery-Saving Features and Vivid 2D Graphics Ideal for Portable HMI Applications

The i.MX RT500 EVK (MIMXRT595-EVK) features NXP’s advanced implementation of the Arm® Cortex®-M33 core, combined with the highly optimized Cadence® Tensilica® Fusion F1 DSP processor core. MIMXRT595-EVK supports development for the MIMXRT595, MIMXRT555 and MIMXRT533 products and its features make it ideal for portable HMI applications. The i.MX RT500 EVK can help jump start your next design with the included schematics and layout files.
