F50C - Conduction Cooled 3U CompactPCI® MPC8548 CPU Board  (Men Mikro Elektronik GmbH)
The F50C is a versatile, rugged PowerPC® based single-board computer for embedded applications with conduction cooling. It is controlled by an MPC8548, or optionally an MPC8543 PowerPC® CPU (alternatively with encryption unit) with clock frequencies between 800 MHz and 1.5 GHz. The SBC is equipped with ECC-controlled, soldered-on DDR2 RAM for data storage, with up to 16 GB of solid-state Flash disk for program storage as well as industrial FRAM and SRAM.

Product Highlights

32-bit/33-MHz cPCI system slot; 1 slot, 9 HP front, rear I/O; MPC8548 (or MPC8543), up to 1.5 GHz; Up to 2 GB (ECC) DDR2 SDRAM; Up to 128 KB FRAM, 2 MB SRAM; Up to 16 GB SSD Flash; FPGA for user-defined I/O functions; MENMON™ BIOS for PowerPC® cards; -40 to +85°C screened

Product Description

The CPU card provides up to three Gigabit Ethernet channels, four USB ports, up to two SATA interfaces and up to 64 user-definable I/O lines controlled by its onboard FPGA. These interfaces can be combined in many variations and are all available at the rear using the board's J2 connector. For first operation and service purposes, the board also includes a UART-to-USB port accessible at the front panel.

The F50C is based on a standard 3U CompactPCI® card that is embedded into a dedicated CCA frame for conduction cooling (CCA = conduction cooled assembly). The 9-HP assembly can be used with MEN's conduction-cooled subrack. It is designed for operation in a -40°C to +85°C environment. For convection cooling, the F50P model is also available, which comes with a tailor-made heat sink for extended temperatures.

The large FPGA on the F50C allows to add additional user-defined functions such as graphics, touch, serial interfaces, fieldbus controllers, binary I/O etc. for the needs of the individual application in an extremely flexible way. Before boot-up of the system, the FPGA is loaded from boot Flash. Updates of the FPGA contents can be made inside the boot Flash during operation.

Equipped with a PCI-bridge chip, the F50C offers a full CompactPCI® interface (system slot functionality) for reliable system expansion. Apart from that, the F50C can also be used as a busless, stand-alone board, with power supply from the backplane.

The soldered components on the F50C withstand shock and vibration, and the board design is optimized for conformal coating.

The F50C 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.
