AMBLER, Pa. 17 Feb. 2011. MEN Micro Inc. in Ambler, Pa., is introducing the F218 3U CompactPCI PowerPC-based slave CPU board that serves as an Ethernet diagnosis buffer for harsh-environment embedded computing in industrial, transportation, and medical applications.The F218 helps reduce wiring and installation for easy implementation and maintenance. Two Ethernet controllers within the field-programmable gate array (FPGA) enable the host to view the F218 as an Ethernet device, similar to a front connection of two single-board computers via an Ethernet cable. The FPGA enables designers to add user-specific I/O functionality.Built on the PowerPC Power Architecture, the F218’s MPC8314 e300-based core processor operates as fast as 266 MHz. The board has as much as 256 megabytes of soldered DDR2 SDRAM system memory with a bus frequency of 133 MHz, as well as 16 megabytes of Flash. An optional 1 megabyte of non-volatile FRAM is also available.

The card is qualified for operation in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius. Software support includes VxWorks and Linux, with QNX available. For more information contact MEN Micro online at www.menmicro.com.
