Emerson introduces dual-core PowerPC VME single-board computer

Emerson Network Power in Tempe, Ariz., (formerly Motorola Embedded Communications Computing Group) is introducing the MVME7100 VMEbus single-board computer (SBC) with dual core PowerPC processor and 2eSST high-speed VMEbus interface for defense/aerospace, industrial, and medical applications.

Emerson Network Power in Tempe, Ariz., (formerly Motorola Embedded Communications Computing Group) is introducing the MVME7100 VMEbus single-board computer (SBC) with dual core PowerPC processor and 2eSST high-speed VMEbus interface for defense/aerospace, industrial, and medical applications. The MVME7100 is based on the system-on-chip Freescale MPC8641D with dual PowerPC e600 processor cores, high-capacity DDR2 memory, as much as 8 gigabytes of NAND Flash, PCI-X, USB, and 2eSST. The board features dual integrated memory controllers, DMA engine, PCI Express interface, Gigabit Ethernet, and local I/O. The MVME7100 supports packages for VxWorks and Linux. The system-on-a-chip implementation offers power/thermal reliability, and lifecycle advantages not typically found in alternative architectures, Emerson officials say.
