MicroSys: SBC family supports NXP QorIQ LS1023A/43A/46A/88A CPUs
The miriac SBCs based on NXP QorIQ LS1023A/43A/46A/88A CPUs offer a complete family of single board computers and development kits, that fit rapid prototyping demand or even serial production use. This is a perfect means to create a wide spectrum of flexible/high performance/low power applications with compatible SoMs on the same form factor. For that the CPUs of the miriac MPX-LS10xx SoMs encompass 2-8 ARM Cortex A53 (LS1023A/43A/88A) cores or rather Cortex A72 (LS1046A) 64-bit cores.
The manifold I/O interfaces of the Layerscape ARM CPU architecture have been adapted on board level and allow flexible integration of peripherals along with high data throughput. The error correction RAM interface of the LS10xx ARM CPUs offers on system level additional safety functionality to support safety critical designs. The MPX-2 module definition is the successor of the for years proven miriac MPX SoM specification. It offers a cost effective SoM form factor, connecting to a standard edge connector (MXM3.0 socket).
Linux board support packages are available and the MicroSys owned RTOS Microware OS-9 can be adapted. Others are available request. Middleware software components like fieldbus support for CAN, EtherCAT or Profinet, embedded graphic server, like XiBase9 and QT or a Soft-PLC-environment for IEC 61131-3 compatible application are part of the solution as well. The systems can be designed for rugged environments, longevity and local engineering resources are the means for fast realization of customer specific devices. The standard temperature range is 0 to +70°C, whereas industrial extended temperature range from -40 - +85°C is offered on demand. Typical applications are to be found in automation, avionics, automotive, medical, railways & transportation, construction, and defense market segments.
