GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms introduced the V7875 6U VME single board computer. VITA 41.3 (VXS) for Gigabit Ethernet across the backplane is also optionally available. The V7875 features the Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 processor and up to 6 MBytes of L2 cache. The combination of high clock speed, large cache, fast front side bus, and low heat dissipation deliver high performance in multiprocessor DSP applications. Use of the Intel GM45 chip set provides fast access to up to 4 GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM and a x16 PCI Express interface to deliver exceptional performance for demanding applications.
The V7875 also offers I/O flexibility. Not only does it provide support for a PCI-X XMC/PMC site, but also a connector to the EXP237 mezzanine board to deliver an optional three additional XMC/PMC sites. The board also includes an option for the ATI Radeon E2400 graphics processing unit – which features a x16 PCI Express interface and 1,920 x 1,080 (full HD) HDMI resolution – in place of one of the XMC/PMC sites, providing a powerful 2D, 3D and multimedia graphics capability.
In addition, connectivity is provided by a dual SATA disk interface, two Gigabit Ethernet ports routed to the front panel, four USB 2.0 ports, and two serial ports. For applications not requiring the XMC/PMC site, even further I/O – one eSATA port, one USB 2.0 port and two Gigabit Ethernet ports (when VITA 41 is not available) – can be provided via the front panel.
