The SOM1046 is a high-performance system-on-module built around NXP’s highly successful Layerscape® communications processor.It provides a compact and cost effective solution for networking and industrial applications.

    The SOM1046 with integrated packet processing acceleration and high speed peripherals including a wide range of networking, storage, security and industrial applications to a  system-on-module.It integrates four 64-bit ARM® Cortex-A72 cores with  high-performance peripherals. The impressive performance of more than 32,000 CoreMarks®, paired with 10 Gb Ethernet, PCIe Gen. 3, SATA 3.0, USB 3.0 and QSPI interfaces provides a perfect combination for a range of enterprise and service provider networking, storage, security and industrial applications. The LS1046A and LS1026A with Ethernet PHYs , PMIC, Storagen and ecc DDR4 memory are available in a 95 x 95 mm form fact.  The processor LS1046 are  pin-compatible with the LS1023A, LS1043A and LS1088A SoCs providing unprecedented performance scaling for 64-bit ARM processors, ranging from dual-A53 through octal-A53 to quad-A72 core processors, while maintaining hardware and software compatibility. This flexible scaling enables customers to leverage their existing software and reuse hardware design for faster time-to-market.
