NXP Semiconductors has announced that its Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combos and i.MX RT MCU crossover processors are now supported within its MCUXpresso software, which significantly eases product development. With this new level of integration, the company has expanded the connectivity capabilities of its EdgeVerse edge computing and security platform. By pre-integrating driver support within theMCUXpresso SDK, the company provides developers with flexible and scalable platforms to assist in accelerating compliance, significantly shortening time-to-market, and streamlining Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo deployments.
These new platforms enable users to be able to mix and match the right MCU with the right Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combo devices, equipping developers with the flexibility required to satisfy the performance and power demands of their IoT, automotive, industrial, and communications infrastructure applications.
“With this new connected-edge platform, NXP continues to deliver on its investments in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth by providing developers with the flexibility to easily pair our i.MX RT MCUs and advanced connectivity solutions for more seamless and cost-effective implementations,” said Ron Martino, senior vice president and general manager of Edge Processing with NXP. “This new integration brings a one-stop-shop approach to platform development with NXP’s highly differentiated offerings that are fully tested and certified, allowing developers to easily and quickly deploy wireless devices at scale.”
