NXP Semiconductors Layerscape Freeway FRWY-LS1046A Evaluation Boards
The QorIQ FRWY-LS1046A provides a flexible, small form factor and low-cost platform to evaluate a variety of different applications including AI/ML with facial recognition, industrial safety as well as data analytics and other edge computing applications, based on four Arm® Cortex®-A72 cores.
NXP Layerscape Freeway FRWY-LS1046A Evaluation Boards are edge computing platforms that support QorIQ® LS1046A architecture processors. Edge computing is a distributed computing paradigm that brings computer data storage closer to the location where it is needed. The boards’ EdgeScale feature provides a solution for device and application management that embeds security from the hardware root of trust to the applications layer. The platform can enable a wide range of applications, including artificial intelligence/machine learning (AL/ML) with facial recognition, industrial gateway, smart building gateway, and wireless gateway. The boards have two platform options: FRWY-LS1046A-AC is presented in an enclosure and includes a plug-in IEEE802.11ac Wi-Fi® module to connect to a mobile device or PC. FRWY-LS1046A-PA is the bare board.
