NXP’s Personal Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution enables portable personal storage to be shared through an internal protocol (IP) or Wireless network allowing users to share photos, data, stream music or videos, backup and recovery of data over the local area network in a completely secure environment. In addition, the solution can support gateway features such as packet forwarding, cloud connectivity via Ethernet, Wi-Fi or LTE. This NAS solution offers significant advantages to consumer and SMB environments, including: Hardware-accelerated Raid for data parity and recovery, a reduced bill of materials (BOM) and ease-of-use associated with an IP network that most business and consumers already find familiar. Based on the QorIQ Layerscape LS1012A processor and the Network Attached Storage Application Solution Kit (ASK), the personal/consumer NAS solution offered by NXP allows developers to easily build storage applications leveraging the highly-optimized and feature rich ASK software stack along with the small form factor, low-power consumption and packet processing capabilities enabled by LS1012A processor.
NXP provides an integrated platform solution (SW and HW) helping the customer to reduce his time to market, increase security and increase performance by leveraging the packet accelerators within the QorIQ® Layerscape LS1012A processor while delivering high NAS performance and IP forwarding applications with reduced load on the ARM core. In addition, NXP LS1012ARDB supports a full set of popular interfaces such as SATA, USB 3.0, PCIe and 2.5/1Gigabit Ethernet for LAN and WAN, allowing customers and operators to securely connect storage devices with the cloud.
