EP2A (GE Intelligent Platforms)
6U VME Single Board Computer
• PowerPC 7448 processor • Discovery V Integrated System Controller • DDR2 SDRAM up to 1 GB • 128 MB Flash memory • Two PMC sites • AFIX (Additional Flexible I/O Xtension) • Two USB 2.0 ports • Two 10/100/1000BaseT ports • Two UART ports (RS232) • Four high speed sync/async serial ports (HDLC - capable) software selectable RS232/422/485 • Air- and conduction-cooled • Comprehensive Deployed Test software • Comprehensive operating system support
The EP2A, a fully rugged single board computer, offers high performance PowerPC processing for the most demanding embedded computing applications. By maintaining the same hardware and software envelope as previous EmPower SBCs, the EP2A provides an opportunity for technology insertion for existing EmPower users, and, in conjunction with the PowerXtreme and XtraPower SBC families, extends the options available to
the rugged PowerPC SBC market.
The EP2A’s processor node features the latest Discovery V Integrated System Controller with a PowerPC 7448 processor and DDR2 SDRAM, in combination with a unique and highly flexible set of I/O features. In addition to standard SBC capabilities such as USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet, the EP2A features four fast HDLC-capable serial channels, making this board ideal for many communications-oriented embedded applications.
The EP2A’s I/O flexibility comes from its two PMC sites and its AFIX site, the latter supporting a range of useful plug-ons including dual MIL-STD-1553B interfaces, SCSI, graphics and Flash memory modules. The AFIX site is also a useful option to add custom functionality at minimum cost and in minimum time.
Available in five air- and conduction-cooled build levels, the EP2A is fully supported by comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS) and BSPs for VxWorks from Wind River Systems.
