Kontron AG debuts the AM4120 AdvancedMC processor module that integrates Freescale Semiconductor's QorIQ P2020 communication processor targeted at packet processing, networking and control applications.

Scheduled for release in Q2 2011, the company says that the module and other upcoming QorIQ-based Kontron AdvancedMCs will enable OEMs and system integrators to take advantage of the integrated and scalable QorIQ processors on MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA platforms. These platforms deliver advanced packet processing capabilities combined with highly flexible processing and I/O functionalities in a commercial-off-the-shelf configuration. Customers benefit from reduced development efforts, optimised time-to-market and scalability for network-centric applications based on modular and standard-based AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA platforms.

The Freescale QorIQ P2020 makes the AdvancedMC processor modules suitable for applications requiring dual-core performance and low power consumption. Also, the QorIQ processor family which offers up to eight cores extends the multi-core segment of the AMC portfolio, providing flexibility to meet system application needs and configurations.

The modules offer virtualisation capabilities, as well as the ability to independently boot and reset each core, provides the user with significant flexibility in partitioning between control, datapath and application processing. It also simplifies consolidation of functions previously spread across multiple discrete processors onto a single device.

Samples of the Kontron AdvancedMC processor module AM4120 will be available in Q2 2011. Full production is scheduled for Q3 2011. Additional Freescale-based AdvancedMCs will be available in Q4 2011.
