PPCM2 (GE Intelligent Platforms)
6U VME Dual PowerPC Processor
* High performance 6U VME dual PowerPC processing engine * Two independent processing nodes * StarFabric switched fabric support * Fully rugged - air/conduction-cooled * Extensive software support * Key features: - Dual PowerPC 7448 - Discovery III ISC - DDR SDRAM (133 MHz memory bus) - Two PMC sites - Two StarFabric ports - Two Gigabit Ethernet ports, four serial ports, two USB 2.0 ports * Note: ISC= Integrated System Controller
The PPCM2 further extends Radstone's XtraPower family of dual processor boards, offering high performance processing and I/O interfaces from two fully independent compute nodes. With enhanced high bandwidth inter-board communications via 2eSST VME and onboard StarFabric, PPCM2 is ideal for a wide range of compute-intensive, real-time applications.
Each compute node features the latest PowerPC 7448 processor and Discovery III Integrated System Controller supporting high capacity DDR SDRAM, Flash memory and NVRAM. In addition each node supports its own dedicated I/O resources including GPIO, Serial and Gigabit Ethernet plus its own PCI-X-capable PMC. Shared resources include further GPIO and USB 2.0 plus 2eSST VME and two StarFabric ports.
The PPCM2's loosely coupled architecture targets demanding real-time applications with each node running separate instances of the chosen operating system. Supported operating systems include VxWorks from Wind River. Mission-critical applications can also benefit from Radstone's comprehensive Deployed Test software for the PPCM2.
