A12B - 6U VMEbus MPC8245 CPU Board (M-Modules™)  (Men Mikro Elektronik GmbH)
The A12B is a single-board computer for embedded applications based on the PowerPC® MPC 8245. It can be used as a master or slave in a VMEbus environment or as a stand-alone card. The A12 provides up to 1MB local dual-ported SRAM for slave access and communication between the local CPU and another VMEbus master.

Product Highlights

PowerPC® MPC8245 / 300 MHz; VMEbus master and slave; 512 MB DRAM, CompactFlash®; Dual 10/100-Mbit Fast Ethernet; 4 COMs, USB, IDE, keyboard/mouse; 3 M-Module™ slots; MENMON™ BIOS for PowerPC® cards; -40 to +85°C screened versions

Product Description

The CPU card comes with the MPC8245 PowerPC® with 300MHz clock frequency and a local 32-bit/33-MHz PCI data bus. It is a complete state-of-the-art SBC offering DRAM, Flash and CompactFlash® memory, dual Fast Ethernet, 4 COMs, USB, IDE and keyboard/mouse interfaces as well as an optional onboard hard disk. A software-loadable FPGA is available for individual user-defined functions such as additional UARTs, a CAN bus interface, DSP functions etc.

In addition, the A12B CPU board can be equipped with M-Module™ mezzanine cards. M-Modules™ are recommended for real-world I/O like analog/binary process I/O and instrumentation I/O. The modular combination of I/O functionality on a single-board computer allows to build up tailored control systems which appear as customized solutions based on standard components.

The A12 comes with MENMON™ support. This firmware/BIOS can be used for bootstrapping operating systems (from disk, flash or network), for hardware testing, or for debugging applications without running any operating system.

The A12 single-board computer is partly compatible with the MVME2100 board by Motorola.
