The development team at Traverse have created aneight-core 64-bit ARM board aptly named the Ten64, specifically designed for multi-gigabit networking and embedded applications. The Traverse Ten64 has been designed to provide users with the “best development experience possible” same its creators with close-to-“mainline” versions of ARM Trusted Firmware, U-Boot, and Linux kernel support.
Unfortunately no pricing details have been announced as yet but you can register your interest over on the Crowd Supply website by following the link below.
“Using NXP’s LS1088A SoC, it includes power-efficient Cortex-A53 cores with a multi-core optimized network block (DPAA2) with potential to scale further in the future with advanced network APIs such as DPDK, as well as virtualization and IOMMU support. Ten64 has an array of high-bandwidth I/O, including DDR4 SODIMM with ECC, 8 x Gigabit Ethernet, 2 x 10G SFP+, M.2 key M with PCIe 3.0 x2 for SSD’s, M.2 Key B with USB 3 and PCIe for cellular modems, and two Mini-PCIe slots for 802.11 cards and SATA controllers. To ease development, there is an on-board USB-to-serial converter with USB C, and a development header with control, I2C, and GPIO/interrupt pins.”
