Kingston Technology, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced it is partnering with NXP® Semiconductors on their new i.MX 8M Plus applications processors. NXP is a leading applications processor developer for creating infrastructure solutions involving smart technology, and Kingston is proud that its eMMC embedded memory solution is part of the reference board for its latest application processor.
Smart device makers requesting NXP’s engineering verification kits featuring the i.MX 8M Plus chipset will see Kingston’s eMMC onboard. This creates a terrific opportunity to expand the relationship with NXP and also further showcase Kingston embedded memory solutions to other IoT manufacturers. Kingston’s discrete memory and storage solutions were also embedded on NXP’s previous-generation i.MX 6 and i.MX 7 series processor boards.
Kingston started its embedded memory business in 2010 to address the then-growing trend toward smartphones, tablets and early-IoT solutions. As the world has increasingly adopted an automated lifestyle via smart devices, Kingston’s presence and stature in the embedded memory industry has grown tremendously.
As a result, Kingston’s memory solutions can be found in industrial applications including automobile fleet tracking and devices enabling 5G telecommunications as well as many home consumer products including Bluetooth® speakers, robotic vacuums and wearables.
