NXP’s i.MX RT Crossover MCU + IW611 Wireless Hosted Matter Development platform, which is seamlessly integrated with NXP’s powerful IW611 wireless chip (with concurrent Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), includes the hardware, software and enablement needed to create advanced end devices using Matter over Wi-Fi as well as Matter controllers. This platform provides the capability to enable and extend full Matter functionality for both local and cloud-based control and monitoring of IoT products seamlessly across major ecosystems.

About i.MX RT Crossover MCU | NXP’s crossover processors and MCUs marry the simplicity of MCUs with the complexity of applications processors into a hybrid device designed to address the growing consumer demand for enhanced user experiences in smart and secure high-performance products. Included in this class of products is the i.MX RT series of crossover MCUs that combines unprecedented performance with reliability and high levels of integration and security to propel industrial, IoT and automotive applications.

Take advantage of the robust enablement to reduce development effort and speed time-to-market with a comprehensive offering of software and development tools. NXP’s MCUXpresso software and tools offer comprehensive development solutions designed to optimize, ease and accelerate embedded system development of applications based on Cortex-M core devices, including Kinetis and LPC microcontrollers, and i.MX RT crossover MCUs. The i.MX RT evaluation kits (EVKs) help you take your design to the next level by reducing complexity and accelerating time to market. You can also enjoy the ability to expand upon this feature-rich EVK with compatible Arduino hardware shields.

About IW611 Wireless SoC | The IW611 is a highly integrated 2.4/5 GHz dual-band 1×1 Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth/Bluetooth Low Energy 5.2 single-chip solution optimized for a broad array of IoT and Industrial applications in smart home, smart devices and accessories, smart appliances, smart energy, industrial automation, gateways and many more. This high degree of integration contributes to very low system costs and a minimum external BOM while achieving efficient co-existence between all internal radios as well as external radios, such as LTE.

IW611 includes a full-feature Wi-Fi subsystem powered by NXP’s 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) technology bringing higher throughput, better network efficiency, lower latency and improved range over previous generation Wi-Fi standards. The Wi-Fi subsystem integrates a Wi-Fi MAC, baseband, and direct-conversion radio with integrated PA, LNA, and transmit/receive switch removing the need for an RF front end module (FEMs) saving cost and reducing system complexity.

In addition to a Wi-Fi 6 radio, the IW611 integrates an independent Bluetooth 5.2 subsystem that supports Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE). The device features Bluetooth Profiles such as hands free (HFP), advanced audio distribution profile (A2DP) for audio streaming as well as additional profiles like dual wide band speech (WBS). For Bluetooth Low Energy, the IW611 enables 2 Mbit/s high-speed data rate, long range and extended advertising. Finally, LE Audio is supported utilizing Isochronous channels for a better overall audio experience.

The IW611 integrates dedicated CPUs and memories for both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth subsystems which enable real time, independent protocol processing. Interfaces for connecting the IW611 to external host processors include SDIO 3.0 for Wi-Fi and UART for Bluetooth.
