SolidRun, a developer and manufacturer of high-performance System on Module (SOM) solutions, Single Board Computers (SBC) and network edge solutions, has announced its all-new family of LX2-Lite SOMs and CLEARFOG LX2-Lite Development Platform, based on the powerful LayerscapeLX2162A SoC from NXP Semiconductors. The new LX2-Lite SOM packs all the embedded power management, memory, storage, and I/O subsystems developers need.
With a footprint measuring 58mm x 48mm, or about 25% the size of standard COM Express 7 solution, the LX2-Lite Mini SOM is claimed to be the smallest 16-core SOM platform in the world.
Ideal for modern software-defined networking solutions, edge network security hardware, data processing units and more, this powerful SOM combines the efficiency of NXP’s 16nm FinFET process architecture and up to 16 Arm Cortex-A72 cores with advanced data path acceleration optimized for L2/3 packet processing, security offload and robust traffic management and quality of service.
The SOM also boasts a 50Gbps security acceleration engine and 88Gbps data compression engine for maximum network security and data routing application performance.
The new LX2-Lite SOMs are capable of incredible speed and come in three varieties, a 16-core version based on the NXP LX2162A, a 12-core version based on the NXP LX2122A, and an 8-core version based on the NXP LX2082A processor. Boasting 12 SerDes lanes, the LX2-Lite-based SOM supports up to four 25Gbps Ethernet connections (up to a max of 100Gbps) and up to eight PCIe Gen 3 connections concurrently, as well as several combinations of the two for vast application flexibility.
Each SOM features a high-speed USB 3.0 interface, and general industrial connectivity options like UART and I2C. All SOMs feature up to 32GB of DDR4 system memory, 8GB of eMMC storage, 8Mbit serial peripheral interface with 64MB of flash memory and SD/MMC interface. SolidRun LX2-Lite SOMs support Linux, as well as Debian, Ubuntu and Yocto developer operating systems.
The LX2162A, LX2122A and LX2082A SOMs based on the NXP LX2-Lite family of SOCs, as well as the CLEARFOG LX2-Lite Developer Platform are now available for pre-order through SolidRun.
