Artesyn’s rugged line of COMX-T modules debut with COMs using NXP’s quad-core QorIQ T2081 and QorIQ T1042 SoCs, clocked to 1.5GHz and 1.4GHz, respectively. Artesyn Embedded Computing has launched a line of 125 x 95mm COM Express Basic Type 6 COMX-T Series computer-on-modules that run Linux on NXP’s Power Architecture based QorIQ T processors: The COMX-T2081 offers a quad-core, dual threaded QorIQ T2081 for eight virtual cores, and the COMX-T1042 has a quad-core, single-threaded QorIQ T1042. The COMX-T2081 features the quad-core, but dual-threaded, octa-core like QorIQ T2081 backed up with soldered, dual-channel 8GB DDR3L-1866 with ECC. The COMX-T1042 steps down to a quad-core QorIQ T1042 which is clocked to 1.4GHz instead of the T2081’s 1.5GHz, and ships with soldered, dual-channel 4GB DDR3L-1600 with ECC. Both use NXP’s e6500 Power Architecture cores. Both COMs provide dual redundant caches of 128MB NOR flash, as well as 8GB NAND flash and a generous 128GB of eMMC. They each offer 8x configurable SERDES lanes that support a variety Ethernet and PCIe interfaces in various configurations. The COMX-T2081 supports GbE, 2.5GbE, 10GbE, and PCIe 2.0 and 3.0, and the COMX-T1042 gives you GbE, 2.5GbE, PCIe 2.0, and SATA 2.0. The COMX-T2081 and COMX-T1042 are now available to selected customers, with general availability planned for November 2017. More information on Artesyn’s COMX-T2081 and COMX-T1042 product page.
