GE Intelligent Platforms introduced the PPC10A rugged 6U VME single board computer. The PPC10A SBC is based on the Freescale QorIQ P4080 8-core processor. The board features either eight or four e500mc cores (each operating at up to 1.5GHz), up to 8 GBytes of dual channel DDR3 memory, two XMC/PMC sites, AFIX site, two Gigabit Ethernet ports (with an additional two ports optionally available), two Serial ATA ports, two USB 2.0 ports (three additional USB 2.0 ports are optionally available) and 31 GPIO ports.
Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) introduced the XPedite5430 single-board computer. The XPedite5430 is a conduction- or air-cooled 3U cPCI SBC based on the Freescale QorIQ P4080 processor. The XPedite5430 pricing varies depending on memory configuration and ruggedization level. The XPedite5430 is ideal for compute and I/O intensive communication, networking, and military ISR applications. It is available now in limited quantities for development. Production hardware is expected to be available in the fourth quarter.
