Product Description

The PPC9A is a member of the PowerXtreme family of 6U VME single board

computers targeted at some of the most demanding applications in embedded

computing. By preserving the same hardware and software interfaces as previous PowerXtreme family members, the PPC9A provides an ideal opportunity for state of the art technology insertion into both upgrade programs and new platforms alike.

The PPC9A’s processor node features Freescale’s latest 8641D dual core integrated processor supported by up to 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM and 1 GB Flash memory. The processor node is coupled to an extensive PCI Express architecture, offering significantly higher data bandwidth than previously possible.

In addition to leading edge raw compute performance, the PPC9A also features impressive I/O flexibility with two PMC /XMC sites and an AFIX site for plug-on system expansion. The AFIX site not only allows access to the current range of standard AFIX PPC9A 6U VME Single Board Computer modules (graphics, SCSI, 1553, digital I/O, Flash memory) but also offers the opportunity to add customer-specific features at minimum cost and in the shortest timescales.

The PPC9A provides a number of high speed interfaces for off-board communication, including two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports and a Serial ATA disk interface. In addition, there is support for legacy interfaces, including six serial ports, and sixteen general purpose I/O lines.

Available in five air- and conduction cooled build levels, the PPC9A is fully supported by comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS) and OS support for VxWorks and VxMILS. The PPC9A is also supported by AXIS (Advanced Multiprocessor Integrated Software), a performance-optimized software environment designed to accelerate the development and production deployment of complex processing applications. AXIS integrated tools and libraries include AXISFlow, AXISview and AXISLib.
