Freescale has developed a revolutionary new networking system architecture for QorIQ platforms, built with ease-of-use in mind. Next-generation QorIQ LS
series processors are built on Layerscape architecture, which delivers unprecedented efficiency and scale for the smarter, more capable networks of tomorrow.
Layerscape architecture enables next-generation networks with up to 100 Gb/s performance and ground-breaking packet processing technology that allows
customers to abstract hardware complexity and focus their resources on innovation at the application level.
The flexible, C-programmable packet processing engine abstracts tasks such as setup, initialization and tear down, allowing users
to call resources and accelerators using standard Linux® objects and APIs.
Additionally, a uniform hardware and software model provides the compatibility and scalability required for customers designing end-to-end networking equipment from home-to carrier-class
products. The unique, core-agnostic architecture incorporates the optimum core for the given application—ARM cores or Power Architecture cores.
