Embedded module TQMT2081: Power Architecture module with QorIQ™ T2081 processor from NXP.


The TQMT2081 embedded modules embody the high-end variants of pin-compatible modules using NXP’s QorIQ™ T-series processors. With four highly efficient dual-threaded e6500 cores and a clock rate of up to 4x 1800 MHz plus the AltiVec technology-based SIMD (single instruction multiple data) engine, these TQ modules offer an extremely powerful platform and also an upgrade path for applications using the TQMT1042 module.


The TQMT2081 processor modules are a perfect choice for mid-range control plane applications or mixed control and data plane applications.

Evaluation platform for TQMT2081

Key functionalities

  •  1x PCIe x1 upgrading plug-in positions for e.g.
    - SSD
    - Graphic cards
  •  Up to 6x Gigabit Ethernet Ports for maximal I/O-Performance (depending on the module variant and configuration)
