The PPC9B is the first Freescale QorIQ based single board computer to join the PowerXtreme family of rugged 6U VMEbus processors. By preserving the same hardware interfaces as previous PowerXtreme family members, the PPC9B provides an ideal opportunity for state-of-the-art technology insertion into both upgrade programs and new platforms alike. But for the first time a dual core Single Board Computer is now available in the power envelope of previous single core solutions.
Features of the QorIQ P2020 processor
• System on Chip (SoC) processors with high-performance e500 cores built on Power Architecture Technology 45 nanometer technology delivers unprecedented performance per watt enabling power-efficient designs
• Dual- and single-core products
The PPC9B’s P2020 based processor node supports a comprehensive range of high capacity memory resources including DDR3 SDRAM, Flash, and NVRAM.
In addition the PPC9B also supports a diverse I/O set that includes options for legacy features such as keyboard and mouse, parallel port and floppy interface, which are ideal for upgrade programs, as well as more current options such as Gigabit Ethernet, fast serial COM ports, USB 2.0, SATA and GPIO.
The PPC9B provides two mezzanine sites for incremental system resource expansion. One site is an XMC/PMC site, offering the option of having XMC I/O or PMC I/O routed to the P0 connector. The second site offers PMC capability, including 5V tolerance, with its I/O pins mainly routed to the P2 connector.
In addition an AFIX site is available for yet more plug-on system expansion. The AFIX site not only allows access to the current range of standard AFIX modules (graphics, SCSI, 1553, digital I/O, Flash memory) but also offers the opportunity to add customer-specific features at minimum cost and in the shortest timescales.
Designed specifically for harsh environment applications the PPC9B is ideal for Mil/Aero applications which require the proven survivability of the PowerXtreme family of boards.
Available in air- and conduction-cooled build levels, the PPC9B is fully supported by comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS) with OS support planned for VxWorks.
