HK-6100 Desktop Network System with NXP LX2160A
The HK-6100 is HawkeyeTech's high-end desktop appliance targeting enterprise-class virtual customer-premises equipment (vCPE), edge routers that host virtual machines, switch controllers, storage controllers, mobile edge computing, and 5G base stations by communication service providers. It also has features for industrial applications.
The powerful CPU complex of the NXP LX2160A processor with its sixteen Arm Cortex-A72 cores is particularly suited to network functions virtualization (NFV) as the chip can run up to 16 heavyweight virtual network functions (VNFs). The integrated offload engines should not be overlooked, either, as cryptography processing and the compression and decompression engines are significantly faster than previous generations and many competitors. In addition, the LX2160A implements NXP's second-generation Data Plane Acceleration Architecture (DPAA2), which accelerates other packet-processing chores. Since packets can flow through without CPU intervention, the switch latency is only about two microseconds. This configuration is typical of wireless base stations, and it replaces an external switch chip.
Arm SystemReady ES
The HK-6100 was certified under the Arm SystemReady compliance certification program to ensure that operating systems and subsequent layers of software "just work". The device meets the SystemReady standards of Windows, VMware, Linux, and BSD OSes, offering seamless interoperability with standard operating systems, hypervisors, and software which ensures the deployment and maintenance of standard firmware interfaces and reduces the cost of maintaining multiple software versions. Compliant systems like the HK-6100 must conform to Arm's Base System Architecture specification (BSA) and the Server Base Boot Requirements specification (SBBR) to provide the necessary hardware, firmware and software requirements to boot successfully.
