Freescale Expands QorIQ T Series With Four Pin-Compatible, 64-Bit Processors

Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) is extending its QorIQ T1 and T2 families of 64-bit processors with four new products, including the quad-core T1040 “router on a chip”– the industry’s first embedded 64-bit processor to integrate a gigabit Ethernet switch.

With these additions, the QorIQ T1 and T2 families represent one of the industry’s most scalable, pin-compatible portfolios of embedded 64-bit multicore communications processors. Built on Power Architecture ® technology, the new products target entry-level to mid-range networking, printing and security device applications.

The T1 family now includes dual- and quad-core devices, and the T2 family includes eight virtual-core devices, enabling a range of performance spanning from 1.2 GHz to 1.8 GHz per core. In addition to the T1040, Freescale is today introducing the T1020, which incorporates two cores and an Ethernet switch, the dual-core T1022, as well as the eight virtual-core T2081, which is based on the Power Architecture e6500 core. All of the parts are pin-compatible.

“Freescale has once again leveraged our wealth of networking IP and intelligent integration strength to offer one of the industry’s most scalable, pin-compatible portfolios of multicore communications processors,” said Bernd Lienhard, vice president and general manager of Freescale’s Networking Processor Division. “The QorIQ T1040 with integrated Ethernet switch is especially significant for networking equipment manufacturers, because it allows them to reduce the number of chips in their systems, speed development and realize associated cost and power savings benefits.”

The T1/T2 devices integrate CoreNet, PCI Express ® and Ethernet networking interfaces, a combination of programmable and fixed processing units, including enhancements to Freescale’s data path acceleration architecture (DPAA) with integrated fixed-functions and networking offload, plus sophisticated pattern matching and security capabilities. Freescale’s intelligent integration, advanced process technology and proven design capabilities provide optimized performance and scalability, as well as flexible power tuning for more energy-efficient designs.

In addition to integrating an eight-port gigabit Ethernet switch, the new T1040 and T1020 products include the features and attributes of the recently announced T1042 device, including Freescale’s DPAA engine, a QUICC Engine block to support a rich set of protocols, shared virtualization technology and next-generation security features. Scalable performance spans from 1.2 GHz to 1.4 GHz and a sophisticated power management system enables deep sleep mode for fanless, energy-efficient designs.
