Freescale introduced a new P4080 communications processor today called the QorIQ P4080 multicore processor. The processor is an advanced 8-core communications processor designed for performance, power efficiency and programmability for the embedded multi-core space.

The P4080 is built on a 45nm process and integrates enhanced Power Architecture cores, tri-level cache, CoreNet on-chip fabric and datapath acceleration. The processor performs within a 30W maximum power envelope.

"Our new QorIQ P4080 processor addresses the need to dramatically scale performance without introducing complexity for developers," said Lynelle McKay, senior vice president and general manager for Freescale's Networking and Multimedia Group. "We've thought through the issues of first-generation multicore devices and the P4080 is our conclusion. By offering breakthrough technology and engaging deeply with our partners, we're ensuring that our customers have what they need to take full advantage of all that our architecture has to offer."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
