The P2041 and P3041 processors are extended-reliability versions of Freescale’s quad core QorIQ™ processors for power-sensitive and computation-intensive applications. The P2041 is an entry-level processor with embedded data-path acceleration. The P3041 is pin-to-pin and software-compatible with processors from the QorIQ P4 and P5 series processors—specifically, the P4080 octal core processor. Both processors incorporate Power Architecture™ e500mc cores that can run at clock rates to 1.5 GHz for high performance at low power levels (in the 13-W range). The processors include data path acceleration for optimized multicore network processing, three levels of memory cache, DDR3/3L memory controllers with error correction code, and a broad set of high-speed communication peripherals. The processors are fabricated on a 45-nm silicon-on-insulator (SOI) process; the P2041 is supplied in a 780-ball BGA package, while the P3041 is housed in a 1295-balls BGA package. The processors are now available with extended temperature ranges of -40 to +110°C and RoHS-compliant packaging, with leaded versions soon available for use across the full military temperature range of -55 to +125°C.
