less than 1 minute read

WaRP7 is a project from NXP in conjunction with Element14. The idea behind WaRP7 is to speed the development of Internet of Things(IoT) and wearable devices by providing a small form factor board with the power and flexibility required for a numerous variety of IoT projects.

WaRP7 hardware overview:

WaRP7 has one main board which includes the following components:

  • NXP i.MX7Solo (ARM Cortex A7 + ARM Cortex M4)
  • Kingston 8GB eMMC and 512KB LPDDR3
  • NXP PF3001 PMIC
  • NXP BC3770 Battery charger IC
  • Murata 1DX Wi-Fi + Bluetooth
  • Omnivsion CSI camera module

The daughter card includes:

  • NXP FXOS8700 accelerometer + magnetometer
  • NXP FXAS21002 Gyroscope
  • NXP MPL3115A2 pressure sensor
  • NXP SGTL5000 audio codec
  • NXP NT3H1101 NFC tag IC
  • USB-serial interface
  • MIPI Display
  • MikroBUS™ interface

WaRP7’s i.MX7Solo chip provides a heterogeneous multicore architecture (A7+M4) which enables low-power modes critical for most IoT end node and wearable designs, but also provides the power to drive a higher level operating system and a rich user interface.
