GE Fanuc VG6 Single Board Computer

GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms recently introduced the VG6 single board computer. The VG6 features the Freescale MPC8640 and MPC8640D low power Power Architecture processors. The VG6 SBC is designed to create less heat, thus making it very attractive for demanding embedded computing applications. The 6U VME VG6 is available as a dual node/single node, dual node/single node single board computer, and is designed for high performance in harsh environments such as military/aerospace and industrial automation and more benign environments such as medical and scientific applications.

VG6 Single Board Computer (SBC) - GE Fanuc Intelligent PlatformsVG6 Features

  • Dual or Single Node Processor Configuration
  • 8641D/8641 or 8640D/8640
  • Up to 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM with ECC for each node
  • 3x Gigabit Ethernet, and 2x 10/100
  • VME64 2eSST interface

The VG6 can be configured as a single MPC8640 single core, single MPC8640 D dual core, dual MPC8640 single core and dual MPC8640D dual core solution, with x8 PCI Express adapter between the nodes: the same options are available for customers choosing the 8641 and 8641D options. Each node can be configured with up to 2GBytes of DDR2 ECC memory.

Support is provided for three Gigabit Ethernet ports as well as two 10/100Mbit Ethernet ports. Two SATA ports are provided for optimum disk storage performance, while extension slots are provided for both PMC/XMC (PCI-X 133 or x8 PCI Express) and PMC (PCI-X 100). Connectivity is further enhanced by the provision of four serial I/O ports (two RS232, two RS422) and six (three per node) USB 2.0 interfaces. Supported operating systems include VxWorks from Wind River Systems and Linux: LynxOS from LynuxWorks and INTEGRITY from Green Hills Software are available on request.
