Concurrent Extends Temperature of VITA 31.1 Based VME SBC

3/24/2004 - Concurrent Technologies has extended the operating temperature of their recently released single slot VITA 31.1 based VME single board computer with extensive front/rear I/O functionality. The VP 305/011-E supports the 1.1 GHz Intel® Pentium M processor, with up to 1.5 Gbytes DDR ECC SDRAM, operating over a -25C to +70C temperature range. With one to three PMC sites, all with rear I/O, the VP 305/011-E rear I/O functions include dual Gigabit Ethernet, VITA 31.1 (Gigabit Ethernet on VME64x Backplanes), analog/digital graphics, keyboard, mouse, RS232/422/485, USB, floppy and EIDE interfaces. The front panel supports the PMC, analog graphics, keyboard and mouse interfaces and includes additional front panel interfaces for USB, RS232/422/485 and Fast Ethernet.

At the core of the design is the low power 1.1 GHz Intel Pentium M processor with a 400MHz front side bus, 1 Mbyte of high-speed secondary (L2) on-die cache, in an FC-BGA package. For increased reliability heat sinks are used in preference to fans for cooling the processor.

The VP 305/011-E provides, soldered on the board, 512 Mbytes of DDR ECC SDRAM that can easily be upgraded up to 1.5 Gbytes via the onboard memory socket. To cater for embedded applications there is 32 Mbytes of Application Flash memory. For a wider range of applications there is an EIDE interface (up to Ultra-DMA100), with an installed EIDE option for a CompactFlashTM carrier within a single slot. Other on-board features available are GPIO bits, speaker interface, PC real-time clock, watchdog timer and long duration timer. LAN boot firmware is included as well. A transition module is supplied for applications requiring rear I/O connections.

For ease of integration, the VP 305/011-E supports many of today's leading operating systems, including VxWorks®, Linux®, Windows® 2000, Windows NT®, Windows® XP, Windows® XP Embedded, RTX®, QNX® and MS-DOS®.
