Freescale QorIQ T2080 and T1042-based embedded computing modules introduced by X-ES
MIDDLETON, Wis., 6 April 2014. Extreme Engineering Solutions Inc. (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing two Freescale QorIQ T2080 and T1042-based embedded computing modules for demanding applications with stringent size, weight, and power (SWaP) limitations.
The XPedite5970 is a 3U OpenVPX REDI module based on the T2080 processor, and XPedite6101 is a conduction-cooled Express Mezzanine Card (XMC) or PrPMC module based on the T2081, T1042, or T1022 processor. The XPedite6100, an air-cooled, front panel I/O, XMC/PrPMC module.
The Freescale T2080 and T2081 processors provide a system-on-a-chip (SoC) solution that emphasizes processing and I/O performance per Watt in a space-efficient package.
They offer eight virtual (four dual-threaded) e6500 cores and support an operating frequency of to 1.8 GHz. Each e6500 core includes the Freescale AltiVec technology-based SIMD engine, providing DSP-level floating-point performance and an extensive inventory of software libraries.
The T2081 processor provides the same performance and capability as the T2080 in an even smaller package, which is pin-compatible with the T1042 and T1022 processors.
The T1042 processor provides a lower-power alternative with four e5500 cores running at to 1.4 GHz. The T1022 provides the lower-power option with two e5500 cores running at to 1.4 GHz.
The OpenVPX REDI XPedite5970 supports as much as eight gigabytes of DDR3 SDRAM and I/O options to the backplane that include 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gen3 PCI Express, and Gen2 Serial RapidIO (SRIO).
The XPedite5970 provides an XMC or PMC site with 10-millimeter I/O envelope support while maintaining a 0.8-inch VPX slot pitch. The XPedite6101 supports several processor configurations and as much as eight gigabytes of DDR3 ECC SDRAM. It also supports a Gen2 PCI Express interface to P15, as well as dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, and SATA 3.0 gigabits per second interfaces to P16.
The XPedite5970 and XPedite6101 offer Wind River VxWorks, Linux, and Green Hills Integrity board support packages (BSPs). For more information contact X-ES online at www.xes-inc.com.
