Kontron has introduced its AdvancedMC processor module, AM4140. Equipped with a Freescale QorIQ P4040/80 CPU with up to 8 cores at 1.5GHz, and high-speed fabrics, the new Kontron AM4140 offers improved performance for parallel, multi-threaded applications on MicroTCA-integrated platforms.
The module incorporates the Freescale QorIQ P4040/80 4/8-core processor with cores based on the e500 Power Architecture. With high-speed frame handlers and multiple high-speed connections like Serial Rapid IO, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express, it meets the demands of multi-threaded processing.
The Kontron AM4140 provides flexible configuration of high-speed fabrics. On AMC ports 4-7, 4x SERDES lines can be configured either as PCI Express (root complex or end point) or Serial Rapid IO ports (host or agent). AMC ports 8-11 may be configured either for Serial Rapid IO, PCI Express, 10Gigabit Ethernet or 4x Gigabit Ethernet. In addition, the module supports three Gigabit Ethernet channels which can be configured to AMC port 0 plus 2x GbE at the front, or 2x GbE on AMC ports 0,1 plus 1x GbE at the front. Kontron also offers a choice of AMC systems for the Kontron AM4140.
The AM4140 will be available in November. It supports VxWorks 6.9, WindRiver Linux, as well as WindRiver Hypervisor.
