NXP's Layerscape LS1028A reference design board (LS1028ARDB) is designed to exercise most of the capabilities of the LS1028A SoC. The LS1028ARDB can help reduce development time by providing a reference for custom board development, a debug tool to check behavior on the board compared to custom board designs, and a pre-loaded embedded Linux® software development kit (SDK) for Layerscape processors.
The LS1028A includes functionality for Industry 4.0 including time-sensitive networking (for deterministic Ethernet), high-performance Arm® Cortex®-A72 cores, 3D graphics for human-machine interface (HMI) applications, and integrated security capabilities using NXP’s trust architecture. The LS1028A is the first SoC in the Layerscape family with an integrated 3D GPU for HMI, TSN support in the integrated Ethernet switch, and the independent Ethernet controllers.
The family consists of four parts including the LS1028A, LS1027A, LS1018A, and LS1017A which offer one or two Cortex-A72 cores and the option to include HMI capabilities with DP/eDP, a LCD controller, and 3D GPU. The LS1028A processor family is part of the successful Layerscape family of SoCs and addresses a wide variety of applications for Industry 4.0, such as Edge compute platforms, industrial IoT gateways, industrial control, PLCs, HMI, and industrial PCs.
