Hi-rel versions of Freescale Power-architecture, high-end MPUs – from e2v

June 18, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
e2v has developed extended reliability versions of Freescale’s T4 series of microprocessors. The high-reliability T4 series of microprocessors, including T4240 (24 virtual cores), T4160 (16 virtual cores) and T4080 (8 virtual cores) are based on the e6500 Power Architecture core.

Featuring Freescale’s AltiVec SIMD Engine, T4240 becomes the highest performance microprocessor released by e2v with computing abilities described as close to 200 Gflop. Operating in the military temperature range -55°C to +125°C, the e2v T4 series offers multiple connectivity options, with specific calibration performed by e2v to enable high speed interfaces over extended temperature ranges. The series will also be part of e2v’s Semiconductor Lifecycle Management (SLiM) programme, which guarantees continued support for programmes requiring long-term availability.

Richard Gibbs, President of Semiconductors at e2v, commented, “The e2v extended reliability versions of Freescale’s T4 series are an ideal choice for customers looking for high performance computing in applications where there are harsh and size constrained environments, and where there is limited possibility to effectively cool the electronic board.”
