About the Freescale P2020

Freescale’s QorIQ platform products serve a wide range of applications, especially those that have tight thermal constraints. The QorIQ P2020 communications processor delivers high performance per watt for a wide variety of applications in the networking, telecom, military and industrial markets. It delivers dual-core frequency of 1.2 GHz on a 45nm technology low-power platform. The P2020 employs the e500 Power Architecture core and peripherals and is fully software compatible with existing PowerQUICC® processors. The processor integrates a rich set of interfaces including SerDes, Gigabit Ethernet, PCI-Express™, RapidIO® technology and USB. 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. The P2020 enables various combinations of data plane and control plane workloads in networking and telecom applications that require higher performance but don’t want the complexity of partitioning the application across many cores.
