Concurrent Technologies Introduces VP 307/01x VME Board

5/13/2004 - Concurrent Technologies announces the latest addition to their range of VME boards - the VP 307/01x - featuring the newly announced low power 1.8 GHz Intel® Pentium® M processor 745 (formerly codenamed Dothan). This new processor increases the L2 cache size from 1 Mbyte to 2 Mbytes and has an improved performance versus power dissipation ratio. The VP 307/01x, a single slot SBC, supports up to 1.5 Gbytes DDR ECC SDRAM. With an onboard PMC site, and expansion for two more PMC sites (all with rear I/O) the VP 307/01x rear I/O functions include dual Gigabit Ethernet, optional VITA 31.1, analog/digital graphics, keyboard, mouse, RS232/422/485, USB, floppy and EIDE interfaces. The front panel supports the PMC and analog/digital graphics, keyboard, mouse interfaces including additional front panel interfaces for USB, RS232/422/485 and Fast Ethernet. The VP 307/01x is a form, fit and function addition to the VP 305/01x family.

VITA 31.1 (Gigabit Ethernet on VME64 Backplanes) provides the system designer with all the features of an Embedded System Area Network using Gigabit Ethernet, without the need for external cables or external Ethernet switches. The VITA 31.1 standard is the VME equivalent to the mature, tried and tested, CompactPCI® PICMG® 2.16 standard.

The VP 307/01x provides soldered on the board 512 Mbytes of DDR ECC SDRAM that can easily be upgraded 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 P2 interface (up to Ultra-DMA100), plus installed EIDE options for an on-board EIDE 2.5-inch disk drive, CompactFlashTM or IBM®/Hitachi MicrodriveTM modules, all 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 307/01x supports many of today's leading operating systems, including VxWorks®, Linux®, Windows® 2000, Windows NT®, Windows® XP, Windows® XP Embedded, RTX®, QNX®, SolarisTM and MS-DOS®. Datasheet available via this link
