The Kontron AdvancedMC™ processor module AM4150 incorporates the high-performance Freescale™ QorIQ P5020 dual core processor with cores based on the e5500 Power Architecture®. With high-speed frame managers and multiple high-speed connections like Serial Rapid IO (1.3/2.1) and PCI Express, the Kontron AM4150 meets highest processing requirements. To support maximum throughput and low latency, the Kontron AM4150 provides a fast dual-channel memory of up to 8 GB ECC DDR3 RAM.
The AM4150 provides flexible configuration of high-speed fabrics. On AMC ports 4-7, 4xSERDES lines can be configured either as PCI Express (root complex or end point) or Serial Rapid IO (host or agent). AMC ports 8-11may be configured either for Serial Rapid IO or PCI Express or up to 3x GbE. In addition, the Kontron AM4150 supports three Gigabit Ethernet channels. Either 2x GbE on AMC ports 0,1 plus 1x GbE at the front or 2xGbE at the front and port 0 on the backplane.
