SBC330 (GE Intelligent Platforms)
3U VPX Single Board Computer
• High performance 3U VPX SBC • 8641D PowerPC to 1.5 GHz • Dual- or single core variants • 1 MB L2 cache per core • Up to 4 GB DDR2 SDRAM • 512 MB Flash • 2x PCI Express ports to backplane: – One x8 port, plus one x4 port • 2x Gigabit Ethernet ports • 2x serial ports, plus PS/2 keyboard and mouse
Designed to maximize the benefits of Freescale’s processor technology, the SBC330 delivers huge gains over previous generations. Developed around the dual core 8641D PowerPC, the SBC330 benefits from the improved signal integrity and power management offered by the VPX form factor.
Each PowerPC core, operating at up to 1.5 GHz, has 1 MB L2 cache and an AltiVec vector processor. The 8641D can support symmetric or asymmetric multiprocessing (depending on operating system support), and its dual 64-bit DDR2 memory controllers can be assigned to each core for increased operating system isolation, or can be shared between the cores.
The 8641D natively supports two 8-lane PCI Express ports. One of these is routed directly to the backplane, where it may be used to connect to peripheral devices, such as the GRA110 graphics processing unit. The second PCI Express interface routes into a PCI Express switch, from which four ports are routed to the backplane and the remaining lanes provide interconnect to USB and Serial ATA interfaces.
The SBC330 is supported by Deployed Test software and a range of BSP packages for standard COTS operating systems.
