Embedded module TQMP2020: Power Architecture module with NXP QorIQ™ P2020 processor


The embedded module TQMP2020 manufactured by TQ is the next generation of the well-known PowerQUICC III module family TQM85xx. The TQMP2020 is based on the P2020 dual core communications processor. The NXP QorIQ™ processor family P1 and P2 opens up the possibility of new applications in industry and communications. With one or two e500 cores and a clock speed ranging from 400 MHz to 2x 1200 MHz, the TQ module with its QorIQ™ processors offers an optimal balance between data processing speed and power dissipation. Thanks to the 45nm technology employed, power consumption is markedly lower that in comparable PowerQUICC III modules. This along with the extended temperature range means that it can be fitted to fanless systems.

The TQ minimodule TQMP2020 is ideally suited to industrial applications where long-term availability, outdoor ambient temperatures and small sizes are important factors. In this respect, the module provides an excellent basis for quick and efficient networking by means of interfaces such as Gigabit Ethernet, PCIe and USB 2.0.

Starter kits

Starterkit baseboard STKP2020

Starterkit baseboard STKP2020
Evaluation platform for TQMP20xx and TQMP10xx

Key functionalities

  • 2x PCIe (x1) upgrading plug-in positions for e.g.
    - SSD
    - PCIe-to-SATA cards
    - Graphic cards
  • 3x Gigabit Ethernet ports for maximum I/O performance with IEEE1588 support for synchronism intime of shared systems in nano seconds range
  • Shunts for measuring the power consumption of the module, PCIe slots and of the baseboard. This enables an easy estimation of the power requirement and therefore the dimensioning of the cooling connection in the application

Extended benefits

At TQ you not only get first-class embedded systems - we also provide a series of benefits around the embedded module:

We support you in defining your requirements for your project. The technical specification serves as guideline for all persons that are involved in the development process.  

For a fast and easy starting-up we provide starter kits. Through the plug-and-play principle, the software evaluation can be started, if the actual target hardware is not yet available. Due to this a product can be launched faster, reasonably priced and more safely.

We support you concerning the selection of components as well as Obsolescence management. Thus your products are protected against obsolete components, complex redesigns, doubtful sources and cost-intensive brokerwares.

If desired we arrange a circuit diagram review for your baseboard directly by the developer of the module. Due to the longtime experience of our developers, it happens quite often that entrapments are indentified in the course of the review.

Supply of Software, especially Board Support Packages and hardware-close driver for the required operating system. Therefore you shorten your development time and reduce your costs.

Starting-up of your baseboard. In case that the starting-up of your baseboard with our module does not work at once, we support you by a structural fault analysis in order to quickly find the reason and repair it.   

We provide you with reference notes to power-on's e.g. power-on of a CAN controller to the local bus, as well as with application notes.

Our Field Application Engineers are pleased to assist you with words and deeds before, during and after your design phase

As system service provider TQ is able to take over the development, production and test of your baseboard. Therefore you get the whole tested unit from one hand. 

Please just ask us. We are pleased to consult you!
