NAMC-QorIQ-P3041

Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) with Freescale™ quad core QorIQ® P3041

The NAMC-QorIQ-P3041 is a powerful single-width mid- or full-size AdvancedMC™ (AMC) processor board designed around the high-performance Freescale™ quad core P3041 with SATA, PCIe, SRIO and XAUI interface.

The NAMC-QorIQ-P3041 is designated for today's packet oriented telecom applications such as LTE or VoIP. Additionally the NAMC-QorIQ-P3041 can be used as general purpose CPU in medical, industrial automation, defence & aerospace applications demanding high data throughput and multi-core processing power combined with dual SATA interfaces.


P3041

The P3041 is a multi-core packet processor offering four 32-bit e500mc cores with up to 1.5 GHz. It provides security and pattern match engines, sophisticated buffer and queue management hardware, and additionally various high speed serial data links.

The P3041’s e500mc cores can be combined as a fully-symmetric or as fully asymmetric multi-processing, system-on-a-chip. The ability of the cores to run different operating systems, or run  OS-less, provides the user with significant flexibility in partitioning between control, datapath, and  applications processing.

The P3041 packet processor is  accompanied by a set of  supporting hardware blocks for  time keeping/tracking as well as  for  external protocol processing/conversion  and  acceleration. Dual SATA ports  provide high-speed, low-cost  storage options for statistics or large databases.

The  combinations  of  storage  interface, fat pipe combinations of PCIexpress, SRIO and XAUI address the need of applications of a cost-efficient solution compared to the P40 and P50 family members. The P3041 is designed for combined control and dataplane processing enabling high-performance Layer 2-7 processing.

The rich feature list of the P3041 CPU turns the NAMC-QorIQ-P3041 into a state-of-the-art packet processing board.

Thus, the board is ideally suited for applications in ATCA and MTCA environments.


Real time clock/PLL

The board is equipped with an on-board Real Time Clock and precision oscillator to support time keeping and time tracking for protocols like RTP (Real Time Protocol) or PTP (Precision Time Protocol, IEEE 1588).

The low jitter PLL allows telecom clocks to be derived from on-board sources and to be provided to the system by the MTCA clock distribution network.


Load Indicators

Each of the four PowerPC cores has its own load indicator LED at the front panel. The load indicators provide a visual feedback of the current load balancing between the individual CPU cores.


Applications

Due to the unique combination of the powerful and feature-rich packet processor and the user accessible FPGA, the NAMC-QorIQ is ideally suited to any voice/data application with requirements like deep packet inspection, encryption, protocol conversion or Layer 2-7 routing. The NAMC-QorIQ is the optimal choice for applications like multi-service switches, edge routers, radio network controllers (RNCs), VoIP/VoP gateways and routers as well as mobile network equipment. Additionally the NAMC-QorIQ-P3041 can be used as general purpose CPU in medical, industrial automation, defence & aerospace applications demanding high data throughput and multi-core processing power combined with dual SATA interfaces.
