AMBLER, Pa. May 23, 2012 — 6U VMEbus SBC
The new board is available in two configurations that enable fast and easy semi-custom solutions to meet different system requirements. Both versions support front and rear I/O and standard modules can be easily plugged in for tailored control systems that appear as customized solutions based on standard components.
The new A21 features a single-core P1013 or dual-core P1022 PowerPC QorIQ processor with clock frequencies of up to 1.67 GHz and serial communication. 1 MB of local dual-ported SRAM is provided for slave access and communication between the local CPU and another VMEbus master.
The new SBC provides a solid foundation for industrial computing including two Gigabit Ethernet channels and one RS232 COM Interface at the front, along with 2 GB of DDR3 soldered SDRAM with ECC, up to 64 MB of Flash and 128 KB of FRAM. The A21 accepts a microSD card and an mSATA plug-in module for mass storage requirements.
If additional I/O is needed, one board slot can be used for a USB 2.0, COM or custom I/O interface controlled by the onboard FPGA.
Operating temperature is -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C and all board components are soldered to withstand shock and vibration. The card can be conformal coated for protection against humidity and dust.
