Embedded Artists selects Adesto’s EcoXiP™ system-accelerating memory to optimize system performance for its new NXP i.MX OEM Boards

EcoXiP improves XiP performance and reduces power and cost for IoT edge applications

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Adesto Technologies (NASDAQ:IOTS), a leading provider of application-specific, ultra-low power non-volatile memory (NVM) products, announced that the i.MX RT1052 OEM Board from Embedded Artists takes full advantage of its EcoXiP™ system-accelerating NVM, enabling developers to improve XiP (eXecute-in-Place) performance, and reduce power and cost for a range of industrial IoT applications.

Embedded Artists’ i.MX RT1052 OEM Board is equipped with NXP Semiconductor’s i.MX RT1052 crossover processor with an Arm Cortex-M7 core. Capable of running up to 600MHz, the RT1052 processor is designed to deliver the performance and integration of an applications processor while maintaining the ease-of-use, low power consumption and real-time capability of a microcontroller (MCU).

“With our i.MX RT1052 board and developer’s kit, OEMs can upgrade their existing microcontroller designs for a wide range of industrial applications, without needing to migrate to complex Linux based systems,” said Anders Rosvall, CTO of Embedded Artists. “We teamed with Adesto to leverage its EcoXiP 4MByte Octal SPI flash because it delivers an exceptional solution with much lower power consumption than any other Octal SPI device in the market.”

Built on an innovative memory and protocol architecture, EcoXiP was designed from the ground-up to solve the challenges of XiP (eXecute-in-Place) memory designs. EcoXiP replaces expensive, energy-inefficient architectures, making power and performance trade-offs unnecessary in a wide range of connected devices. For a broad range of MCUs and other intelligent IoT devices, EcoXiP delivers high system performance, optimized latency and throughput, concurrent read/write capability, enhanced security, and the best standby power.

“With EcoXiP, we are making high-performance, low-power XiP systems a reality. These systems will pave the way for a range of emerging applications that need better energy efficiency and lower cost,” said Gideon Intrater, Adesto CTO. “NXP’s RT Series of processors can take full advantage of the efficiencies and performance benefits of EcoXiP. We are delighted to support Embedded Artists in offering OEMs these advantages through the innovative new RT1052 development board.”

The RT1052 OEM Board enables developers to use on-chip SRAM, off-chip EcoXiP flash memory with a high-speed Octal SPI interface, or a combination of the two solutions, depending on their application.
