The COMX-P4040 and COMX-P4080 modules from Emerson Network Power provide the performance and features of the Freescale QorIQ™ processors on ready-to-go pluggable mezzanine modules. By incorporating and leveraging the mechanical features and dimensions of the COM Express® specification, these modules exhibit all the best attributes of the COM Express open standard enabling shorter development schedules and faster time-tomarket. Emerson has a range of QorIQ based COM Express form factor modules to enable scalable product strategies with multiple performance levels. This open, standardized approach fosters competitive pricing, greater upgrade flexibility and longevity of support.
The QorIQ P4040 and P4080 processors are effectively system-on-chip (SOC) devices with a range of features including high-performance datapath acceleration and network processing in a low power envelope making the COMX-P4040 and COMX-P4080 modules suitable for combined control, datapath and application layer processing. Underpinning the high-compute capability of these modules are the multiple Power Architecture e500mc cores which are complemented by highly flexible I/O including 10G-XAUI, SRIO, GPIO, USB 2.0, PCI Express, Gigabit Ethernet and real-time debug.
The dimensions of the COMX-P4040 and COMX-P4080 modules are 95 mm x 125 mm which enable them to fit within a very wide range of enclosures when mounted on a customer carrier. They are off-the-shelf processor solutions that isolate you from the complexities of high speed processor and memory system design, allowing you to concentrate on a carrier tailored to application I/O needs.
By combining the tried and tested Power Architecture processor cores along with a considerable range of on-module I/O, the COMX-P4040 and COMX-P4080 are suitable for a range of applications including enterprise and service provider routers, switches, basestation controllers, radio network controllers (RNCs), long-term evolution (LTE) and general-purpose embedded computing systems in the networking, telecom/datacom, wireless infrastructure, military and aerospace markets.
