Kontron AM4120 - AdvancedMC Module Based on Freescale™ QorIQ P2020

Dual Core 1.2GHz Processor, up to 4GB ECC DRAM, MicroSD Socket


The Kontron AdvancedMC® processor module AM4120 is equipped with the Freescale™ QorIQ P2020 Dual Core processor with up to 1.2GHz and based on the Power Architecture® e500. Application reliability is ensured with features such as the redundant universal bootloader U-Boot and persistent memory for cycle data storage. Furthermore, a dedicated Module Management Controller (MMC), which supports basic IPMI commands, is used for board management, enabling operators to monitor the status of the AdvancedMC™ module in the system, simplifying system management and improving availability. The Kontron AdvancedMC™ processor module AM4120 also offers increased longevity due to Freescale’s processor availability until at least 2018, careful component selection and a MicroSDHC card socket that is not impacted by regular flash discontinuation.

The universal Kontron AM4120 offers cost sensitive AdvancedTCA® and MicroTCA™ system designs long- term availability, support of various fabrics and an extraordinary performance-per-watt ratio.
