These modules are designed to accelerate time-to-market by reducing design and development complexities, while simultaneously maximizing product performance, which continues to be a critical operational theme for OEMs and systems integrators.

Attendees of the Freescale Technology Forum Americas 2011 this week can see the latest COM Express® embedded computing modules powered by Freescale Semiconductor QorIQ® processors. Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, is announcing the COMX-P3041, COMX-P4040 and COMX-P5020 modules at this renowned industry event.

These new products can speed deployment for users of QorIQ processors with diverse I/O requirements by reducing design complexity while providing customizable modular options. Design engineers are isolated from the complexities of high speed processor and memory system design, allowing them to focus on a carrier board tailored to the I/O needs of their application and improving their product to gain market share. Applications for the new Emerson Network Power QorIQ COM Express modules include enterprise and service provider routers, switches, base station controllers (BSCs), radio network controllers (RNCs), long-term evolution (LTE) infrastructure and general-purpose embedded computing systems in the networking, telecom/datacom, wireless infrastructure, industrial, military and aerospace markets.

Glenn Beck, marketing manager with Freescale’s Networking Processor Division, said: “The COMX-Pxxx modules from Emerson Network Power provide the performance and features of the Freescale QorIQ processors on a ready-to-go pluggable mezzanine module. These modules are designed to accelerate time-to-market by reducing design and development complexities, while simultaneously maximizing product performance, which continues to be a critical operational theme for OEMs and systems integrators. The long standing relationship between Emerson Network Power and Freescale has created a comprehensive breadth of price, power and performance for the QorIQ family on the COM Express form factor, providing OEMs outstanding embedded solutions based on Power Architecture technology.”

“COM Express has emerged as an attractive form factor for a wide variety of OEMs with space and thermal constraints in their products,” said Paul Virgo, marketing director of Emerson Network Power’s Embedded Computing business. “Emerson now has the industry’s widest range of QorIQ based COM Express form factor modules to enable scalable product strategies with multiple performance levels.”

The COMX-P3041module features the Freescale QorIQ P3041 quad-core communications processor operating at 1.5 GHz, for a more power- and cost-efficient solution to modules built on the P4 platform while retaining many of the features and architectural compatibility.

The COMX-P4040 module features the Freescale QorIQ P4040 quad-core communications processor operating at 1.5 GHz, making it ideal for communications applications requiring combined control, data and application layer processing.

The COMX-P5020 module features Freescale’s first offerings with the 64-bit, e500mc core, the Freescale QorIQ P5020 dual-core processor operating at 2.0 GHz to target control plane and compute applications that require high single-threaded performance.

All modules support one or two channels of 2GB DDR-1333 ECC SO-UDIMM and have 12 configurable SERDES lanes available for maximum flexibility. Highly flexible I/O includes 10G-XAUI, SRIO, GPIO, USB 2.0, PCI Express, Gigabit Ethernet, and real-time debug.

These new Emerson Network Power COM Express modules join the company’s COMX-P1022, COMX-P2020, and COMX-P4080 modules. More information about Computer-on-Module products and technology from Emerson Network Power can be found at http://www.Emerson.com/EmbeddedComputing.
