6U VME e500 core MPC8536 PowerPC-based single board computer with multi-function I/O introduced by NAI

BOHEMIA, N.Y., 30 Dec. 2010. North Atlantic Industries (NAI) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing the 64EP3 6U VME single-board computer for I/O-intensive system applications. The computer board is based on the Freescale 1.25 GHz e500 core MPC8536 PowerPC processor, and has multifunction and communications I/O, which can eliminate the need for a separate CPU board, NAI officials say.

BOHEMIA, N.Y., 30 Dec. 2010. North Atlantic Industries (NAI) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing the 64EP3 6U VMEsingle-board computer for I/O-intensive system applications. The computer board is based on the Freescale 1.25 GHz e500 core MPC8536 PowerPC processor, and has multifunction and communications I/O, which can eliminate the need for a separate CPU board, NAI officials say.

The processor provides real-time, intelligent sensor data acquisition and local data management operations such as analysis, algorithm manipulation, and control of all I/O functions. It also supports direct data management and distribution among dual Gigabit Ethernet and communication interfaces such as MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429/575, RS232/422/485, and CANBus.

The 64EP3 CPU board includes four module slots for mix-and-match configurations from multi-function I/O and communication modules. The available I/O functions include A/D, D/A, Discrete/TTL/CMOS/Differential I/O, RTD, Synchro/Resolver/LVDT/RVDT Measurement and Simulation and Encoder/Counter.

Available communication functions include MIL-STD-1553, ARINC 429/575, RS232/422/485 and CANBus. The enhanced motherboard design, using multiple DSPs, enables higher processing power and dedicated control for each I/O module. For more information contact NAI online at www.naii.com.
