6U CPU board with PowerQUICC II MPC8248@400 MHz, SDRAM on socket, FLASH 16MB, Hardware Encryption Unit

The VSBC-6848 VME Single Board Computer establishes a new standard of quality and performance for a really attractive price !

With a third generation low dissipation PowerQUICC II running at 400 MHz with only 1.5 Watt, this new VME board will be the perfect replacement solution for all older VME boards designed around 68k and PowerPC 603/604 processors now in End of Life from MOTOROLA Computer Group.

The VSBC-6848 includes all most required features like SODIMM 64-bit SDRAM up to 512 MBytes, on board 16 MBytes Flash, 1 MByte SRAM, and a CompactFlash socket for rugged on board storage. If more storage is needed, an optional Dual Serial-ATA controller will give access to large volume storage drives. For communication, the VSBC-6847 includes two Fast Ethernet Ports, two HDLC ports with ESD protected software programmable RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 interfaces, one USB port and one RS-232 Console port. Additionnally, the VSBC-6848 includes its own Hardware Encryption Processor.

Additional functionalities are available through the two 32-bit PMC extension slots, and eight general purpose TTL I/Os. One non-volatile 256 kbit EEPROM is available for user parameters.

The board is compatible with the VME specification rev. C and requires only 5V power supply, with less than 1.5 A of current (Typical power dissipation is only 6 Watt without PMC’s & CompactFlash. The VSBC-6848 supports a complete VME-32 interface for master and slave accesses with bus arbiter, interrupt handler and DMA controller functions.

For software support the board is shipped with ECMON monitor and BSP’s are available for LINUX and VxWorks RTOS from our partner ECRIN Systems.
