64-Bit quad-core QorIQ P5040 processor from Freescale

Freescale Semiconductor introduces two 64-bit, multicore QorIQ P5 family control plane processors delivering 2.4 GHz of single threaded performance per core.

The new quad-core QorIQ P5040 and dual-core P5021 products feature a robust mix of accelerators, high-speed interfaces and security features, resulting in advanced embedded solutions ideally suited for power-conscious control plane applications. The new products complement Freescale’s previously announced QorIQ P5020 and P5010 devices based on 2 GHz cores, and round out one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolios of embedded control plane processors. Built on Freescale’s 64-bit Power Architecture e5500 core, all four QorIQ P5 family products are pin- and software- compatible. Software reuse is further enhanced with hybrid 32-bit mode capabilities, which support legacy software and help ensure a seamless transition to 64-bit computing. “Freescale continues to expand its broad range of highly successful QorIQ multicore processors with the new P5040 and P5021 devices,” said Bernd Lienhard, vice president and general manager of Freescale’s Networking Processor Division. “These products are engineered to help our customers maintain best-in-class power efficiency while handling the tremendous control plane processing demands associated with the rapid global growth of wired and wireless data.” Availability Freescale plans to offer initial samples and a P5040 development board in June 2012, with full qualification for both products expected in the first quarter of 2013.
