The LS2 family of processors delivers unprecedented performance and integration for tomorrow's smarter, more capable networks. The eight-core LS2084A and the four-core LS2044A multicore processors offer Arm® Cortex®- A72 cores with the advanced, high-performance datapath and network peripheral interfaces required for networking, telecom/datacom, wireless infrastructure, military, aerospace and automotive applications.
The next-generation datapath architecture, combined with a powerful software toolkit, provides a higher level of hardware abstraction and makes software development quick and simple.
This combination balances ease-of-use with high-performance processing in a Linux® environment that is familiar to any software programmer. Customers can fully exploit the underlying hardware and easily adapt to network changes for real-time 'soft' control over the network.
Layerscape processors are part of NXP's EdgeVerse™ edge computing platform.
