    • SABRE development Board for Smart Devices Based on the i.MX 7 Dual Applications Processor


    NXP® delivers the Smart Application Blueprint for Rapid Engineering (SABRE) board based on i.MX7Dual applications processor, utilizing both the ARM® Cortex®-A7 and Cortex®-M4 cores with enhanced security and power optimization. With the goal of faster time to market, the SABRE board allows developers to evaluate the processors’ primary features including hardware-enabled security, integrated EPD controller, LCD/HDMI/MIPI DSI display and flexible connectivity interface, plus rich on-board solutions to Wi-Fi®/Bluetooth®4.0+EDR (Supporting BLE), and dual 1 Gigabit Ethernet.

    The corresponding software support enables developers to run a rich operating system like Linux® or Android on the ARM® Cortex®-A7 core and FreeRTOS on the ARM® Cortex®-M4 core, exploring the full potential of the Heterogeneous Multicore Processing (HMP) architecture.L4.1.0_1.1.0_GA BSP release can support i.MX7D SABRE board. Developing uboot and Developing Kernel on public git may provide better support.
