Industrial Gateway and Communications Module

NXP QorIQ P1020 Module

The uCP1020 is a compact (80x80mm) System-on-Module (SoM) designed for communication and data delivery applications that require a combination of CPU performance, high-throughput network processing and rugged operation. The module uses an 800MHz dual-core NXPTM P1020 PowerTM architecture communications processor. The system features up to 2x Gbit Ethernet networks and 2x PCIe lanes for additional Wi-Fi, 3G/4G or other data communications. The 120-pin uCP1020 module supports all necessary sub-systems on-board, it uses industrial rated parts and requires only passive cooling, no spinning disc and no fan.

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.
