Industrial Gateway and Communications Module

NXP QorIQ P1020 Module

The uCP1020 is a compact SOM (System On Module) designed for digital networking applications that require a combination of CPU performance, high-throughput data processing and rugged operation.

The module uses an 800MHz dual-core NXPTM P1020 PowerTM architecture communications processor. The system features up to 2x 1Gbit Ethernet interfaces and 2x PCIe lanes for additional data-intensive communications peripherals such as Wi-Fi or LTE. The module integrates into end product by using a 120 pin connector and supports all necessary sub-systems on-board, it uses industrial rated parts and requires no active cooling.

Demos of Arcturus Management Middleware and Mbarx Secure IoT Site Controller are bundled with the development kit along with access to an open source Linux BSP. The system is compatible with the Mbarx ecosystem of endpoints, tools and gateways, including the Mbarx System Manager tool for site-wide configuration and firmware management.

A complete development kit is available that provides all the necessary tools to:

  • Evaluate the capabilities of the uCP1020 module and Linux OS.
  • Evaluate Arcturus middleware and other application stacks.
  • Act as a development system to create rugged, high-performance communication applications.
  • Act as an off-the-shelf module component, qualified for production use.

A complete suite of services and engagement packages are available to support design, development, customization, system-level integration, support and training.
