The AdvancedMC single board computer form factor provides high data throughput and low latency Eching, Germany – Kontron is presenting today its high-performance AdvancedMC processor module Kontron AM4140. Equipped with a Freescale QorIQ P4040/80 processor with up to 8 cores at each 1.5 GHz and high-speed of fabrics the new Kontron AM4140 offers outstanding performance for parallel multi-thread applications integrated MicroTCA platforms. The Kontron AdvancedMC processor module AM4140 integrates a Freescale QorIQ P4040/80 4/8-core processor, the kerne are based on the e500 power architecture. Thanks to the links fast processing unit for data packages (frame handler) and numerous high-speed, such as serial rapid IO, 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PCI Express, the Kontron AM4140 processor module meets the highest requirements in the multi-threaded processing. For high data throughput and low latency, the Kontron AM4140 of also fast dual-channel ECC-RAM offers up to 8 GB of storage. “Target applications are signal processing in high-speed telecommunications, for example for RNCs, LTE and test equipment as well as in the military communications, as well as in industrial and medical image processing”, so Mario Abdul Hamid, product manager at Kontron. “The Kontron AM4140 was compliant to the MicroTCA. 0 standard and developed for the highest requirements in terms of performance and longevity.” The Kontron AM4140 offers flexible high-speed of fabrics.
On the AMC ports 4-7 four SERDES links can either as PCI Express (root complex or endpoint) or be configured as serial rapid IO ports (host or agent). Serial rapid targeting applications that require low-level programming without costly overhead and low-latency IO and PCI Express. The AMC ports 8-11 can either as serial rapid IO, PCI Express, 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 4 x Gigabit Ethernet are configured.
