NXP created the differing suites to address different roles within our customer’s companies including software developers (developer suite), board bring-up experts (specialist suite) and network architects (architect suite).
The Layerscape LS1043A Development Board (LS1043A-RDB) is designed to exercise most capabilities of the LS1043A device; NXP’s first quad-core, 64-bit Arm-based processor for embedded networking and industrial infrastructure.
NXP support plans for LS1012A, LS1024A, and LS1043A communications processor software are made available to all customers. The described support plans apply to NXP’s Application Solution Kit (ASK) for LS1024A communications processors. NXP offers three tiers of software support plans for these products, allowing customers to tailor the level of support to their project’s continuing need.
