Teledyne e2vâ€™s military qualified version of NXPâ€™s LS1046A processor, guarantees its operation at -55Â°C to 125Â°C for Aerospace and Defence Applications.
4th March 2019, Grenoble, France â€“ Teledyne e2v, an aerospace qualified manufacturer of advanced semiconductors, has qualified and released the first upscreened processor from NXPâ€™s new LayerscapeÂ® Series, the LS1046A, to operate at -55Â°C to 125Â°C. The LS1046A is part of NXPâ€™s 64-bit ArmÂ® Layerscape portfolio that, implements a quad-core ArmÂ® CortexÂ® A72 design providing unparalleled performance in the smallest form factor possible while enabling access to the vast ecosystem of software services, applications and tools compatible with ArmÂ® technology.
The LS1046A from NXP is a 1.8GHz processor integrating packet processing acceleration with high-speed peripherals and is recognized for its high-performance architecture and market-leading compute density. The LS1046A, offering more than 45,000 CoreMarksÂ® of compute performance, paired with dual 10Gb Ethernet, PCIe Gen3, SATA Gen3 is suitable for a range of high reliability mil-aero applications. The Teledyne e2v military qualification of this device assures its functionality between -55Â°C and 125Â°C and is available in both RoHS and leaded packages. In addition, as part of Teledyne e2vâ€™s Semiconductor Lifecycle Management program, SLiMâ„¢, the lifetime of this device can be supported for 15+ years, avoiding common and costly obsolescence issues.
â€œWe see a new trend developing in the Aerospace and Defense industry toward 64-bit ArmÂ®-based products with the Teledyne e2v military qualified device from our Layerscape Series of commercial processors,â€ commented Altaf Hussain, Marketing Manager for NXP. â€œWe believe e2v customers will not only leverage the advanced computing performance of the device but also the ecosystem that supports ArmÂ®, creating new possibilities in system design.â€
Teledyne e2v is now offering a broad range of devices to its Aerospace & Defense customers; its portfolio includes many PowerPCÂ®-based qualified and supported processors from the NXP QorIQÂ® P- and T-Series, as well as the more traditional PowerQUICCÂ® devices. Customers can continue using their Power Architecture-based software and applications, while Teledyne e2v continues to develop solutions on newer technologies such as ArmÂ®-based solutions from NXP. Customers may either transition to ArmÂ®-based solutions or start new developments with proven PowerÂ® Architecture-based solutions from NXP. The LS1046A is also the chosen device to be embedded into Teledyne e2vâ€™s latest QorminoÂ® computing module, which also includes a 4GB DDR4 memory (for more information, please check our website: www.teledyne-e2v.com/products/semiconductors/qormino).
Thomas Guillemain, Marketing and Business Development Manager of Digital Processing Solutions at Teledyne e2v, commented, â€œThe release of our first military qualified device from NXPâ€™s Layerscape Series is a signal of our continued efforts to support new and existing lines from NXP. I am proud of our processor portfolio offering with all the military versions of NXPâ€™s T-Series, P-Series and PowerQUICCÂ® based processors. The introduction of NXPâ€™s Layerscape Series and the qualification of the LS1046A is a major step in allowing our customers to benefit from the wide ArmÂ® ecosystem in their applications.â€
