The CM6 is a 3U CompactPCI CPU board with integrated dual core or single core Freescale MPC8641 processor. The MPC8641D follows the system on a chip approach by integrating the memory controller, Ethernet channels, PCI Express as well as UARTs and timers.
The processor includes one or two execution cores in a single processor case, each core with its own L1 and L2 cache including AltiVec support. This enables execution of parallel threads or applications on separate cores with dedicated CPU resources.
CM6 is designed to meet the requirements of markets such as telecom, simulation/training, test and measurement, military and aerospace. Based on the Freescale MPC8641D, the platform supports processor speed up
to 1.33 GHz. Rugged needs are addressed with an optional extended temperature range of -40°C to +85 °C and conformal coating. Shock and vibration immunity is designed in with stiffener bars, wedge locks and conduction cooling.
The CM6 provides a unique feature set, including up to 1 Gbyte of DDR2 SDRAM with ECC, system and non-system mode support for the CPCI backplane, one PMC interface (64-bit/100 MHz). A high level of functional integration (two Gigabit Ethernet, two serial interfaces (RS-232 and RS-422/485), Flash and GPIOs) within a single slot gives users the freedom to use the PMC for their application-specific I/O.
VxWorks operating system is supported. The CM6 is designed for RoHS compliance.
