The NAMC-QorIQ-P4080 is the market's most powerful single-width mid- or full-size AdvancedMC™ (AMC) processor board designed around the high-performance NXP (Freescale) 8-core QorIQ® P4080 processor.
The NAMC-QorIQ-P4080 is a powerful packet processing engine in AMC form factor based on the NXP (formerly Freescale) QorIQ P4080 communications processor, designed for packet-oriented telecom applications such as LTE or VoIP.
NAMC-QorIQ P4080: The QorIQ P4080 is a multi-core packet processor offering eight e500mc PowerPC cores at up to 1.5 GHz. It provides security and pattern-match engines, sophisticated buffer and queue management, and various high speed serial data links. The board is therefore ideally suited for applications in AdvancedTCA (ATCA) and MicroTCA (MTCA) environments. The QorIQ P4080 is designed for combined control and dataplane processing, enabling high-performance Layer 2-7 processing.
The P4080/P5020 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.
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 such as 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 PowerPC cores has its own load indicator LED at the front panel. The load indicators provide 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 such as deep packet inspection, encryption, protocol conversion or Layer 2-7 routing. The NAMC-QorIQ is the optimal choice for applications such as multi-service switches, edge routers, radio network controllers (RNCs), VoIP/VoP gateways and routers as well as mobile network equipment.
