e2v launches a new series of high-reliability microprocessors at this year’s Paris Air Show

e2v, the leading high-reliability semiconductor solutions provider, announces the release of its new P1 series microprocessors from the QorIQ product family at this year’s Paris Air Show.

Microprocessors from the QorIQ family are extensively used in commercial avionics and defence electronics systems, from control applications to high-performance processing systems. The new P1 series in particular, combines the benefits of legacy PowerPC core architecture, with the latest communication interfaces and silicon process technologies.

Based on a PowerPC core architecture e500v2, operating at frequencies up to 1067MHz, the P1 series by e2v operates in military temperature range from -55˚c to +125˚c and offers optimised power consumption, as well as data protection with an optional encryption feature.  e2v also ensures long-term continuity of supply with its Semiconductor Lifecycle Management (SLiM) programme, designed for aerospace and defence longevity requirements where time-in-market is a critical part of the design consideration.

“The P1 series perfectly complements our portfolio of QorIQ microprocessors available for the aerospace and defence market, offering additional embedded solutions to customers designing critical systems where failure is not an option” said Richard Gibbs, President of e2v’s Semiconductor division. “Avionics and defence customers can now rely on e2v’s new series of products for their embedded systems, benefiting from our expertise in serving high-reliability applications with the latest available technologies.”

The series of products includes:

  • P1013 and P1022: Qualified production in September 2015
  • P1011, P1012, P1020 and P1021: Sampling in June 2015 and Qualified production in September 2015


e2v is exhibiting at the Paris Air Show from 15 to 21 June – join us in Hall 4D at booth 119 to see the P1 series and discuss your requirement with the team.
