Flexible QorIQ-based SBC Offers Up to Eight Gigabit Ethernet ChannelsBLUE BELL, Pa., March 11, 2014 — (PRNewswire) — MEN Micro Inc., a world-renowned provider of embedded computing and I/O solutions for mission-critical industrial, mobile and harsh environment applications, now offers the G51, a 3U CompactPCI Serial SBC equipped with a high performance QorIQ processor and a multitude of standard I/O interfaces on both the front and rear of the board.
The board's combination of exceptional connectivity, flexible configurations and multi-core computing provides a strong backbone for many types of communications and processing systems requiring intense, reliable data throughput.
The new G51 is ideal for a number of high computing functions including data acquisition and encryption as well as simulation and process control. Soldered components, high shock and vibration tolerance and a -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C operating temperature enable its use in harsh environments typically found in railway, automation, avionics and power and energy applications.
The flexible SBC is easily customized to meet user I/O and application requirements, as additional CompactPCI Serial peripheral cards can be added to provide specialized functionality.
Using CompactPCI Serial's full mesh architecture, all of the board's eight Gigabit Ethernet channels—three on the front and five on the back—can be switched to the backplane, if needed, without hardware modification.
The board provides solid connectivity. Additional rear I/O includes four PCIe ports and two SATA II ports, one of which can control an mSATA disk, as well as six USB 2.0 ports. Two additional USB 2.0 ports on the front can also be led to the backplane.
Other design options include M12 Ethernet front connectors as well as conformal coating for use in dusty and humid environments.
Based on Freescale's P3041 QorIQ quad-core processor, the G51 offers up to 1.5 GHz of processing speed with or without encryption as well as four high performance Power Architecture e500mc cores. The SBC offers up to 8 GB of soldered DDR3 SDRAM system memory with ECC as well as several board management functions and a Linux BSP. The G51 is compliant to EN 50155 (railway) and is prepared for ISO 7637-2 E-mark compliance (automotive).
