RIO3 8064 (Creative Electronic Systems S.A.)
PowerPC-Based, Real-Time VME64x Computing Platform
- PowerPC G3 (750) or G4 (74xx)/dual independent 64-bit PCI
- VME64x-LI/D64 BMA (160MB/sec. with chained blocks)
- Up to 1GB of SDRAM, 2MB of L2 BS cache, 16MB of FEPROM
- 2 to 6 PMC slots, 100Mb/sec. Ethernet, RS-232
- Supports the CES multiprocessor extension package
The RIO3 8064 is a VME processor board equipped with the latest PowerPC 750/7400 CPU running at the maximum available speed. It includes a 2MB backside L2 cache. The board can be equipped with a maximum of 1GB of SDRAM and offers 16MB of flash EPROM.
Two PCI buses are attached to the CPU bus. One drives the board's on-board PCI resources, including the two on-board PMC slots. The other one is routed to the PO connector to extend the number of PMCs controlled by the same CPU to a maximum of six (using CES PEB boards).
CES has designed its own PowerPC-to-PCI and PowerPC-to-VME bridges to overcome limitations of devices found on the market and to optimize performance and integration in the global architecture of the board. CES provides the user with total control of the bandwidth on the different buses.
The RIO3 is designed for real-time multiprocessing applications that require live insertion and high availability.
The CES BP-Net is available over PCI and VME to allow clusters of processors to distribute tasks, synchronize processes, and exchange messages at a very high speed. TCP/IP is supported.
