The QorIQ LS2085A processor based Intelligent SSD (referred as iSSD) card is built with NXP’s second-generation data path architecture which delivers scalable acceleration elements sized for application needs unprecedented efficiency, smarter and more capable platform.
The LS2085A integrated multicore processor combines eight ARM® Cortex®-A57 processor cores with high-performance data path acceleration logic and network and peripheral bus interfaces required for networking, telecom/datacom, wireless infrastructure, and mil/aerospace applications.
This iSSD Card is NVMe compatible in a PCI Express form factor thereby enumerating it as PCIe Gen3 device.
LS20185 iSSD Card has two boards:
The QorIQ based iNIC supports two PCI Express® x4 Gen3 host interface, as well as an SD/MMC card slot and one USB 3.0 port. These components integrated with the LS family, makes it ideal platform for target applications. The LS2085A-iSSD supports two 8GB DDR4 SODIMM with ECC 128 MB of NOR flash and 512Kbit I2C EEPROM. Storage card having the support of both DDR3 and NAND DIMMs.
The LS2085A-iSSD is pre-loaded with the Embedded Linux® Essentials for QorIQ processors with data path acceleration software development kit. This kit includes a 64-bit SMP Linux kernel, hugetlbfs for applications with a large memory footprint, user space Data Path Acceleration Architecture for high-performance packet handling, u-boot, the GCC tool chain and virtualization support, among many other features.
