The Smart Application Blueprint for Rapid Engineering (SABRE) for automotive infotainment offers a solid foundation for next-generation converged telematics and infotainment platform designs. Based on i.MX 6 series of applications processors, Freescale's most scalable implementation of the ARM® Cortex™-A9 CPU cores, with single-, dual- and quad-core offerings, processing speeds up to 1 GHz, and a high level of automotive-specific integration, the SABRE for automotive infotainment enables customers to rapidly deploy today’s consumer user experiences in the car.
