6U CPU board with PowerQUICC III MPC8560@833 MHz, DDRAM on socket, FLASH 16MB.

After the original PowerQUICC II 8260 at 200 MHz in 2001, and the improved 8270 at 450 MHz last year, ACTIS engineers are proud to announce their first PowerQUICC III VME Single Board Computer designed with a 8560 processor running at 833 MHz and offering performance of 1’926 MIPS (Dhrystone 2.1).

This new VME board is compliant with the VME rev. C legacy standard, doesn’t require the new VME bus extension (5 row connectors, P0, 3.3V supply) and is therefore FULLY compatible with all existing VME backplanes. The VSBX-6560 is the perfect replacement solution for all existing VME CPU boards from Motorola which are now in EOL because of the RoHs specifications.

In addition, the VSBX-6560 is a perfect extension to our VSBC-6872 with twice the performances, two Gigabit Ethernet and one Fast Ethernet ports (instead of 3 Fast Ethernet ports), Fast DDR RAM, while remaining fully compatible for software applications and front panel connectors.

The VSBX-6560 supports up to 1 GByte of DDR RAM, 32 MBytes of Flash, 1 MByte of SRAM, and a CompactFlash socket. For I/O, in addition to the 3 Ethernet ports already listed, the VSBX-6560 supports two S-ATA ports and the 4 HDLC ports common to all PowerQUICC boards.

Software support for the VSBX-6560 includes LINUX by ECRIN BSP and VxWorks BSP. A lower cost version based on 8540 PowerQUICC III (without HDLC ports) running at 667 MHz, the VSBX-6540 can be supplied on request.
