Kingston will be continuing its partnership with NXP Semiconductors. This partnership will bring the latter’s latest chipset to life. As a result, Kingston’s multimedia cards (eMMC) will be part of the reference board for NXP’s i.MX 8M Plus application processors.
This is not the first time that Kingston joined forces with the semiconductor company. Kingston’s discrete memory and storage solutions were also embedded on the previous-generation i.MX 6 and i.MX 7 series processor boards.
According to Kingston:
“We are honored to extend our partnership with NXP, one of the top semiconductor companies in the world, on their latest i.MX 8M Plus evaluation kit. Kingston products power machines and devices everywhere from data centers to corporate and client PCs, as well as many embedded products. We have been in the memory business for over 33 years and working with NXP is a great way to enhance our embedded solutions business.”
According to NXP Semiconductors:
“Our latest i.MX 8M Plus processor focuses on machine learning, vision, multimedia as well as industrial IoT devices. As with prior NXP applications processors, it is great to work with Kingston and include their embedded memory solutions with our evaluation kits that are sent to developers and manufacturers. Our relationship runs deep on both engineering and marketing levels.”
