Freescale QorIQ™ P2 Communications Platform Series

The QorIQ P2 communications platform series, which includes the P2020 and P2010 communications processors, delivers high single-threaded performance per watt for a wide variety of applications in the networking, telecom, military and industrial markets. The series delivers dual- and single-core frequencies up to 1.2 GHz on a 45nm technology low-power platform.

The QorIQ P2 series processors have an advanced set of features for ease of use. The integrated security engine supports common security algorithms used in networking and wireless applications, such as IPSec and Kasumi. The 64b memory controller offers future-proofing against memory technology migration with support for both DDR2 and DDR3. It also supports error correction codes, a baseline requirement for any high-reliability system. Other memory types such as flash are supported through the 16b local bus, USB, SD/MMC and SPI.

The P2 series integrates a rich set of interfaces including SerDes, Gigabit Ethernet, PCI-Express, RapidIO® technology and USB. The three 10/100/1000 Ethernet ports support advanced packet parsing, flow control and quality of service features, as well as IEEE® 1588 time-stamping. Four SerDes lanes can be portioned across two Serial RapidIO ports, three PCI Express ports and two SGMII ports.
