BRIEC-DE-L'ODET, France, 18 June 2010. Interface Concept in Briec de l'Odet, France, is introducing IC-PQ3-XMCa low-power XMC computer boards, based on the Freescale PowerQUICC III MPC8536E microprocessor, for embedded computing in military and aerospace applications that require gigahertz-class complex processing and high speed connectivity in a small board footprint.

Typical power consumption in full 1 GHz operation is 10 Watts. The IC-PQ3-XMCa is suited to embedded single-board-computer applications such as compute-intensive solutions requiring high-speed I/O transactions, Gigabit Ethernet interfaces for high-performance network connectivity, redundant failsafe links, control element for network switches, storage subsystems, network appliances, and imaging devices, company officials say.

Other features of the CPU board include as much as 1 gigabyte of DDR2- ECC, 128 megabytes of Flash, 4 gigabytes of NAND Flash, and as many as three Gigabit Ethernet ports. Concept provides BSP for VxWorksR and Linux operating systems. Other RTOS can be ported on request.

The IC-PQ3-XMCa is available in standard, extended and rugged grades. For more information contact Interface Concept online at www.interfaceconcept.com.
