A new network processor has hit the market, compliments of Advantech.

The Advanced Mezzanine Card Freescale (News - Alert) QorIQ P4080 AMC, at its core, is a single-width, mid-size AMC based on the Freescale P4080 network processor.

It features 8 KHz and 19.44 MHz telecom clock sync support, intelligent power consumption (typical 32W), AMC.0, AMC.1, AMC.2 and AMC.4 compliant and configurable SERDES channel (SRIO/XAUI/PCIe) support, one 10 GbE SFP+ for external access, DDR3 up to 1600 MHz 8 GB with ECC support and Freescale P4080 8 core e500-mc PowerPC, up to 1.5 Ghz.

The Advanced Mezzanine Card Freescale QorIQ P4080 AMC’s various features make it extremely versatile and allow it to appeal to a wider range of MicroTCA (News - Alert) or ATCA Carrier topologies beyond just telecom applications. 16 MBit SPI Flash and 2 GB NAND Flash allow for onboard options for software and storage. 

The AMC also enables 8 KHz and 19.44 MHz telecom clock synchronization support.

The unique SERDES design supports up to four different AMC port configurations for a mix of SRIO, PCIe, XAUI and SGMII channels and AMC-4201 provides 4 and 8 GB build options for onboard DDR3 memory at 1333 MHz with ECC support. One front-panel 10GbE SFP+ connector provides network access in addition to a front panel console and debug port.

All in all, the Advanced Mezzanine Card Freescale QorIQ P4080 AMC combines powerful multi-core power architecture performance with network processing capabilities, and builds on the communications ubiquity of Freescale’s QorIQ product family.
