Looking at NXP part number MCIMX357CJQ5CR2, and wondering the difference between that and MCIMX357CJQ5C? What does the R2 suffix call out?
The R2 suffix is a packaging code. MCIMX357CJQ5CR2 is supplied on Tape & Reel Packaging. Compared to MCIMX357CJQ5C which is supplied on Tray Packaging.
So these are the same exact parts, but they are supplied in different packaging forms.
