Freescale Introduces Industry’s First 10 Gbps Wi-Fi Enabled Home Gateway Solution

QorIQ LS1043A residential gateway reference design enables first real-world application based on Quantenna’s new 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi product family

AMSTERDAM — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 8, 2015 — IBC-2015 – Freescale Semiconductor is driving next-generation, multi-gigabit broadband access toward mainstream adoption with the industry’s first 10 Gbps Internet plus 10 Gbps Wi-Fi enabled home gateway solution.

Freescale developed its new QorIQ LS1043A residential gateway in collaboration with Quantenna Communications. Coupled with open, Linux-based security, video streaming and networking applications, the platform enables dramatic boosts in bandwidth, throughput and quality of service.

The new Freescale solution leverages its quad-core QorIQ LS1043A processor based on 64-bit ARM®v8 technology, together with Quantenna’s QSR10G 10G Wave 3 802.11ac Wi-Fi product family. This latest Quantenna product family can support up to 12 streams, and is based on its True 8x8™ adaptive, multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology, which provides the flexibility and scalability to meet rising demand for home access points that can manage and support increasing numbers of Wi-Fi devices. The reference solution also features a 10 Gbps copper or fiber WAN connection enabled by the QorIQ LS1043A processor’s 10G Ethernet port.

“We are excited about the possibilities of our ground breaking 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi product family and believe that Freescale’s long history and expertise in networking makes them an ideal partner to create applications which can help OEMs and service providers quickly and easily get 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi products to market,” said Lionel Bonnot, senior vice president of Marketing and Business Development for Quantenna. “The optimized security and 10G performance of Freescale’s LS1043A processor opens the door for next-generation user applications and enhanced quality of wireless experience in the home.”

The companies collaborated to leverage Quantenna’s Wi-Fi innovation, resulting in the ability to identify and categorize wireless and Internet traffic for streaming and time-sensitive priority -- resulting in optimized gaming, video streaming and Internet voice quality, even under highly demanding usage conditions.

“Delivering on the promise of Quantenna’s 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi product family demands a level of packet processing performance that was previously the exclusive domain of high-end enterprise networking equipment, yet today Freescale is uniquely positioned to bring power-efficient, multi-gigabit performance to the home,” said Nikolay Guenov, director of Product Management for Freescale’s Digital Networking group. “With this reference design, we are helping to advance the next level of Wi-Fi performance, reliability and capacity to deliver a higher quality of experience to customers and operators.”

About QorIQ LS1043A

The first ARMv8 Gateway SoC with a 10G interface, the QorIQ LS1043A quad-core processor delivers precise blends of computation intelligence, integration, security and networking performance to enable the new “intelligent edge.” Delivering 1.6 GHz of performance and dissipating typical power as low as 5 W, the LS1043A processor is ideal for broadband gateway applications including next-generation edge networking equipment such as Fiber and xDSL residential gateways, branch routers, security appliances and SDN/NFV edge platforms. The device features advanced virtualization hardware, supports flexible, secure over-the-air software updates with Freescale’s trust architecture, and offloads latency sensitive applications for optimized local performance with proven classification and traffic management hardware.

Development tools

Freescale offers a full-featured Linux OpenWRT-based residential gateway Application Solution Kit (ASK), which implements low-level routing and security acceleration functions, and a CodeWarrior toolchain. With the ASK, customers can focus on their own application development and get to market more quickly.


The QorIQ LS1043A processor is sampling now. Freescale’s new LS1043A reference design is planned for availability in the fourth quarter of 2015. Contact your local Freescale sales representative for more information or visit
