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."
