HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 16 June 2014. 2014 GE Intelligent Platforms in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the rugged XMCM01 XMC single-board computer for aerospace and defense applications that require small size, weight, and power (SWaP).

The XMC form factor enables designers to take advantage of a drop in processing capability. It comes with a range of CPU core and memory options that enables technology insertion, or the ability for the same carrier board to have different levels of processing power.

Optionally available is the MCC601 6U CompactPCI carrier card, which does not need a 6U CompactPCI chassis to function, as it can be powered via an on-board ATX connector.

The Marvell ARMADA XP CPU is equipped with to four ARMv7-compliant 1.6 GHz CPU cores and 2 megabytes of L2 cache. With advanced power management and waking options, this CPU enables the XMCM01 to maintain a high level of performance within a low power envelope.

The XMCM01 provides to 2 gigabytes of DDR3 SDRAM with ECC, x4 PCI Express via the P15 connector, a wide range of I/O via the P16 connector (with an option for I/O on the P14 connector for PMC users), three 10/100/1000 BASE-T Ethernet ports, three RS232/422 UARTS, two Serial ATA (SATA) ports, three USB 2.0 ports and eight GPIO ports.
