CPU-PPC460EX-VME-A (PowerPC)




The CPU-PPC460EX-VME-A processor board is designed for rugged, convection cooled environments. It is capable of running Linux and VxWorks operating systems. Because of its high performance processor and the fact it contains a large number of diverse interfaces types, it is very well suited for communication intensive applications. In addition, the board was designed for low power consumption enabling very high reliability in the harshest environments.

    Features
  • AMCC PPC460EX processor @ 1 GHz
  • 256 Mbytes of DDR2 SDRAM with ECC
  • 2 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet port
  • 10 serial ports - configurable transceivers
  • 2 USB ports 1 Host, 1 OTG
  • 2 PCI Mezzanine Card Sites (64/66)
  • VMEbus interface 5 row or 3 row
  • 1 SATA port
  • 128 Mbytes of NOR Flash
  • 32 Mbytes of NAND Flash
  • PCIe (X4) Expansion on P0
  • Temperature sensor
  • Real time clock
  • Watchdog Timer
  • SPI Interface
  • IIC interface
  • -40 to +85°C operation

Benefits
With 2,000 DMIPS of integer performance, an integrated floating point unit and less than 5 watts of typical processor power consumption, this board remains cool in embedded environments while still providing many options for communication connections. Since many of the custom interfaces were designed into an FPGA, the board effectively combats long term obsolescence problems as well.
