The QorIQ® P5040 reference design board (P5040-RDB) is a flexible system that supports the quad-core P5040 processor.
With frequencies scaling to 2.2 GHz and rich input/output mix, the P5040-RDB is intended for enterprise and data center networking, telecom and industrial applications, where its high-performance, high-efficiency cores and integration make it well suited as a multicore control plane processor.
The P5040-RDB can help shorten time to market. The system can serve as a reference for system-level hardware development by providing a comparison tool for customer-specific board implementations. It can also be used for customer software development and performance evaluation.
