GRENOBLE, FRANCE - Media OutReach - 15 April 2021 - To satisfy demands from customers in the
avionics and space sectors, Teledyne
e2v is now in a unique position to supply fully-qualified QorIQ® T4240 processors with tin-lead
multi-core T4240 units are able to address extremely compute-intensive
application scenarios. Comprising up to 12 dual-threaded PowerArchitecture®
cores (24 virtual cores) and attaining frequencies of 1.8GHz, these devices
deliver elevated levels of performance while taking up only minimal board
space. They feature an extensive range of I/O options – including 10Gbit
Ethernet, 1Gbit Ethernet, PCIe, USB, SATA, RapidIO, etc. Thanks to the data
path acceleration logic embedded into each T4240, packet classification and
processing efficiencies can be boosted significantly. Operational temperatures
spanning from -55°C to 125°C are supported.
addition to the characterisation, screening and qualification of these devices
for high-reliability environments (to check they have the necessary robustness,
longevity and performance attributes), Teledyne e2v is also supplying the T4240
with a Sn-Pb ball option. This will prove a major advantage in application
areas that are not subject to RoHS regulations. Thanks to a testing environment
that is identical to original manufacturer NXP, with the same test equipment,
test quality and coverage, the integrity of these reliability-augmented
processors is fully assured in both Sn-Pb and lead-free options.
consumption is another key aspect that needs to be dealt with, in particular
for compute-intensive and resource-constrained applications. Here Teledyne e2v
engineers will enter into in-depth consultation with the customer concerning
their specific application. From this, the power budget requirements (in
relation to both static and dynamic power) can be fully understood.
Thomas Guillemain, Marketing & Business Development Manager at Teledyne e2v
Semiconductors, explains, "Teledyne e2v is in a unique position to provide the
T4240 to Aerospace customers in both Sn-Pb and lead-free options. Qualifying
this component after Sn-Pb reballing has proved a major challenge, due to the
huge size of the package and the number of balls involved. Our comprehensive
qualification steps and inspection procedures have shown that going beyond a
standard deballing/reballing process is required to maintain full integrity.
Thanks to the measures that we have implemented specifically for this
component, it is now qualified and available with the highest level of quality
and reliability. This differentiates us from competing operations, as we can
offer a far superior end product."
