The LS1024A multicore communications processors delivers scalability, superior packet handling capabilities, vastly increased VPN and SSL throughput and industry-leading quality of service hardware features. For broadband home routers, VoIP gateways, IoT (Internet of Things) gateways, and low-end network attached storage.
Based on single- or dual-core Arm® Cortex®-A9 CPU cores, the LS1024A of system-on-chip (SoC) processor achieves the lowest power consumption in its class (<3 W typical at 900 MHz) to provide performance scalability and maximum flexibility. In addition to high throughput IPSec and SSL CPU offload with an onboard security engine that includes a powerful deep packet inspection engine with GZIP decompression capability. The LS1024A processor includes SATA-2 interfaces, along with a powerful processing engine and integrated RAID controller to provide an ideal solution for network attached storage applications.
The LS1024A OpenWRT Linux-based SDK is optimized for both single- and dual-core operation.
Layerscape processors are part of NXP's EdgeVerse™ edge computing platform.
