They feature an extensive range of I/O options including Gbit Ethernet, PCIe, USB, SATA, RapidIO for compute-intensive application scenarios
To meet the demands of avionics and space sectors, Teledyne e2v now offers fully-qualified QorIQ T4240 processors with tin-lead (SnPb) finishing. These multi-core units can address extremely compute-intensive application scenarios.
Comprising up to 12 dual-threaded PowerArchitecture cores (24 virtual cores) and attaining frequencies of 1.8GHz, the T4240 processors deliver elevated levels of performance while taking up only minimal board space.
They feature an extensive range of I/O options – including 10Gbit Ethernet, 1Gbit Ethernet, PCIe, USB, SATA, RapidIO, etc. Thanks to the data path acceleration logic embedded into each T4240, packet classification and processing efficiencies can be boosted significantly. Operational temperatures spanning from -55°C to 125°C are supported.
In addition to the characterisation, screening and qualification of these devices for high-reliability environments, the T4240 comes with an Sn-Pb ball option. This will prove a major advantage in application areas that are not subject to RoHS regulations. Thanks to a testing environment that is identical to the original manufacturer NXP, with the same test equipment, test quality and coverage, the integrity of these reliability-augmented processors is fully assured in both Sn-Pb and lead-free options.
“Teledyne e2v is in a unique position to provide the T4240 to Aerospace customers in both Sn-Pb and lead-free options. Qualifying this component after Sn-Pb reballing has proved a major challenge, due to the huge size of the package and the number of balls involved. Our comprehensive qualification steps and inspection procedures have shown that going beyond a standard deballing/reballing process is required to maintain full integrity,” explains Thomas Guillemain, Marketing & Business Development Manager at Teledyne e2v Semiconductors.
