Samples of Freescale’s Vybrid F series VF3xx, VF5xx and VF6xx devices are now available. The Vybrid VF3xx family is a single-core (ARM Cortex®-A5) solution with 1.5 MB on-chip SRAM, dual XiP quad SPI memory interface, XGA display controller, dual high-speed USB with PHY, dual Ethernet and an L2 switch. The Vybrid VF5xx family increases performance and adds a DDR2/3 memory interface. The Vybrid VF6xx family adds an ARM Cortex-M4 processor and an analog video ADC.
Vybrid devices also provide a powerful combination of on-chip encryption, secure boot, anti-tamper and anti-clone capabilities to secure sensitive or critical infrastructure applications such as smart grid or industrial control.
By combining ARM Cortex-A5 and Cortex-M4 processors, Vybrid VF6xx devices eliminate the need for an external microcontroller (MCU) or field-programmable gate array (FPGA). With this architecture, system developers can create complex control systems with a user-friendly application HMI. This integration helps reduce development effort, component count, circuit board area and power consumption.
