MIDDLETON, Wis., 15 April 2012. Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) in Middleton, Wis., is introducing the XPedite5600 air-cooled PrPMC/XMC embedded computing module based on the Freescale Semiconductor quad-core QorIQ P2041 processor for military embedded systems, as well as for industrial and communications applications that require a high-performance PowerPC processor on an industry-standard mezzanine module.

The XPedite5600 is for designs using the Processor PMC and Express Mezzanine Card (PrPMC/XMC) processor installed on a carrier baseboard. The mezzanine board offers an upgrade path to a higher-performing processor mezzanine subsystem.

XPedite5600 features include Freescale P2040 or P2041 processor with four PowerPC e500mc cores at speeds to 1.5 GHz; air-cooled PrPMC/XMC form factor; as much as eight gigabytes of DDR3-1333 ECC SDRAM; x4 PCI Express Gen2 XMC interface or 32-bit PCI PMC interface; one front panel and three rear I/O Gigabit Ethernet ports; two front panel and two rear I/O RS-232/422/485 serial ports; one front panel and one rear I/O USB 2.0 ports; two rear I/O SATA 3-gigabyte-per-second ports; Linux, Wind River VxWorks, and Green Hills Integrity BSPs.
