Now at Mouser: NXP’s Layerscape LS1046A Freeway Board for Powerful Edge Computing Applications

August 1, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader empowering innovation, is now stocking the Layerscape® LS1046A Freeway (FRWY-LS1046A) evaluation board from NXP Semiconductors. Available as a bare board or in an enclosure with a dual-band Wi-Fi module, the FRWY-LS1046A evaluation board is an edge computing platform designed to support NXP’s QorIQ LS1046A system-on-chip (SoC).

The powerful board supports a wide range of applications, from industrial and smart building wireless gateways to artificial intelligence (AI) with facial recognition and automotive and aerospace applications. Other target applications include edge compute gateways, machine learning, robotics, industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and data communications.

The NXP Layerscape LS1046A Freeway board, available from Mouser Electronics, is based on a quad-core Arm® Cortex®-A72. The board offers a robust set of peripherals, including 64 Mbytes QSPI flash, 4 Gbytes DDR4 (with EEC at 2.1 GT/s), and 4 Gbits of NAND flash. The board also offers two USB 3.0 ports and a Micro SD slot.

The evaluation board also includes SPI, I2C, clock, interrupts, and general-purpose input/output (GPIO) expansion headers. The device’s connectivity elements include two M.2 PCIe connectors with support for Wi-Fi, SSD, and 4G/LTE; four Gigabit Ethernet ports; and a Mikroe Click board™ socket for expansion options such as sensors, NFC, Bluetooth® Low Energy, and Zigbee. The versatile evaluation board supports both wired and wireless applications like WLAN access points, Ethernet switches, and UTM equipment.
