The Internet of Things (IoT) promised and still promises to democratize technology with the ability for hundred of thousands of
devices to be deployed and connected. Evolving from a landscape where access to the latest technology was dependent on large
investments, the IoT strives to give ubiquitous access based on the capability to act on data.
The building blocks of the IoT range from fast evolving connectivity standards, such as Matter, to core processors that may
contain familiar building blocks of intellectual property but are architected to enable fast adoption for a wide variety of
usage models that constantly evolve and redefine the IoT device.
The i.MX 91 family extends NXP's leadership in smart controllers. Read what Tirias Reseach had to say about the
i.MX 91 family.
i.MX 91 applications processor, announced May 30th the latest addition to the i.MX 9 series — is designed to enable and accelerate the democratization of IoT. The key features of the i.MX 91 SoCs are detailed in product manager James Prior's
i.MX 91 announcement blog. The i.MX 91 family, with a secure enclave and a Linux® BSP that natively supports a range of NXP
connectivity devices, including the IW612 tri-radio solution, provides the building blocks to enable secure connected devices for the breadth and depth of the IoT and
IoT-enabled smart home's interoperability is powered by Matter
However the enablement can only be delivered if system integrators and original design manufacturers (ODMs) that are integral to
the deployment of IoT and edge industrial devices build a system around these core building blocks; linking end device
manufactures to devices such as the i.MX 91 SoC. Often this connection of the IoT value chain evolves after a key product is
available to the mass market and may explain why IoT devices have not proliferated as fast as many people predicted. To reverse
this trend, for the i.MX 91 family we have engaged a key group of system integrators earlier than ever before, so that as we
announce the i.MX 91 processor, these partners can demonstrate its capabilities based on a fully developed board, running early
software and a connected display; an IoT development kit, not just a part.

We acknowledge and thank
TQ Systems, Forlinx,
Phytec, Seco and
for working with us on short deadlines and drafting datasheets and alpha software to light up our technology. The i.MX 91 family advances the evolution of the i.MX 9 series into a performance and price category that NXP and our partners believe will enable millions of new smart connected devices.
