IMX53QSB: i.MX53 Quick Start Board - MCIMX53-START

Freescale delivers a cost-effective, easy-to-use platform designed to simplify product evaluation and speed time to market with its new Quick Start development board series based on the i.MX family of multimedia applications processors.

The first in the series, the i.MX53 Quick Start board is a $149 open source development platform. Integrated with an ARM® CortexTM-A8 1 GHz processor, the Quick Start board includes a display controller, hardware-accelerated graphics, 1080p video decode and 720p encode as well as numerous connectivity options ideally suited for applications such as human machine interface in embedded consumer, industrial and medical markets.

Designed as a feature-rich development platform, the i.MX53 Quick Start board includes hardware design files and a board support package (BSP) containing drivers optimized for multimedia operations. This decreases time to market, provides a basic product design, and serves as a launching point for more complex designs.

The i.MX53 Quick Start board is supported by a rich ecosystem and a community of developers at The ecosystem is comprised of partners who provide a variety of cost-effective debugging tools and complete development suites optimized for the Quick Start development platform.
