The T1040 and T1020 processors deliver leading performance per watt and reduce overall system cost, power and design complexity, making them ideal for low-cost routers. By offloading key tasks to the switch, the products free the CPU to handle other tasks, delivering 2x to 4x the performance of Freescale’s current-generation QorIQ P1 processors, while maintaining the same power budget. Target applications include enterprise and service provider switching and routing equipment, security appliances and industrial products such as factory automation and smart grid networking products.The new dual-core T1022 processor delivers more than 2x to 4x the performance and SerDes bandwidth of Freescale’s current generation QorIQ P1/P2 devices, while maintaining the same power budget. It targets a variety of power-sensitive applications, such as enterprise switching and routing equipment, security appliances, and factory automation networking products. The new T2081 device integrates four dual-threaded Power Architecture e6500 cores running at up to 1.8 GHz and delivers 2x or better in core capability, cache size, SerDes bandwidth and Ethernet connectivity, while maintaining the same power budget as Freescale’s mid-tier 45-nm QorIQ P series devices. Key features include advanced virtualization technology, a broad array of I/O options, DPAA and robust security functionality. The e6500 core’s dual-threaded technology provides 1.7x the performance of a single thread and features the 128-bit AltiVec single instruction multiple data vector processor, which performs calculations that DSPs would otherwise handle, such as media acceleration and radar processing, but at much lower power. The T2081 is designed for control plane or integrated control/data plane processing. Target applications include mobile backhaul equipment, LTE/WCDMA channel cards, control cards and NICs, and test and measurement products. Tweet This: @Freescale expands QorIQ T series for entry-level and mid-range applications, introduces first 64-bit chip with integrated Ethernet switch Energy-efficient operation To meet aggressive OEM power envelope requirements, T1 and T2 family products utilize an advanced power management approach that reduces energy consumption using a variable-mode power switch, allowing customers to modulate the power of the cores and other processing units with independence and precision. This approach also includes deep sleep and standby modes, enabling the creation of products that achieve sub-0.5 W power while maintaining fast, responsive networking for on-demand processing. Designed for compliance with energy consumption standards European Code of Conduct (ECC) and EnergyStar (SNE), the T1/T2 family device architecture and 28-nm manufacturing technology enable fanless, convection-cooled system designs. The e5500 core uses Nap/Doze/Sleep power saving modes to reduce the system energy use, and packet lossless deep sleep support is provided with ECMA 363 based auto-response.
