Low-power, System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions are enabled by two new QorIQ-based modules from Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES).
Low-power, System-on-Chip (SoC) solutions are enabled by two new QorIQ-based modules from Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES). The XPedite5970 and the XPedite6101 feature the Freescale QorIQ T2080 and T1042 devices. The XPedite5970 is a 3U OpenVPX REDI module running the T2080 processor, and XPedite6101 is a conduction-cooled XMC or PrPMC module using the T2081, T1042, or T1022 processor. The T2080 and T2081 processors offer eight virtual (four dual-threaded) e6500 cores and support an operating frequency of as much as 1.8 GHz. The T2081 processor provides the same performance as the T2080 in a smaller package and is pin-compatible with the T1042 and T1022 processors. The T1042 processor provides a lower-power alternative with four e5500 cores running as fast as 1.4 GHz. The T1022 provides the lowest-power option of the processors with two e5500 cores running as fast as 1.4 GHz.
The OpenVPX REDI XPedite5970 supports as much as 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM and has multiple I/O options to the backplane, including 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Gen2 SRIO, and Gen3 PCIe. The XPedite6101 works with multiple processor configurations and as much as 8 GB of DDR3 ECC SDRAM. It supports multiple I/O options with a Gen2 PCI Express interface to P15, and dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, and SATA 3.0 Gbps interfaces to P16.
