VPX6-187 Freescale QorIQ P4040/4080 SBC

VPX6-187 Freescale QorIQ P4040/4080 SBC

The VPX6-187 VPX Single Board Computer is based on Freescale's Power Architecture QorIQ P4040/4080 SOC multi-core processor. Available in versions with up to eight Power Architecture Cores running up to 1.5 GHz, and up to 4 GB of high-bandwidth DDR3 SRAM, the VPX6-187 Single Board Computer provides high-performance processing, the massive 10 GB/s bandwidth of VPX and a long list of features and I/O interfaces to satisfy the most demanding requirements of embedded computing. The VPX6-187 Single Board Computer features a large number of I/O interfaces including EIA-232, EIA-422/485 serial, USB, Ethernet, MIL-STD-1553, SATA, TTL and differential & discrete I/O. The VPX6-187 OpenVPX Single Board Computer is equipped with two mezzanine sites. One mezzanine is capable of supporting a IEEE 1386 PMC or VITA 42.3 XMC module with 64-bits of Pn4 I/O and 12-pairs of differential Pn6 I/O from that site to the backplane connectors as per VITA 46.9. The second mezzanine is designed to support only an XMC with maximum I/O providing 20 differential pairs and 38 single-end signals routed as per VITA 46.9. The VPX6-187 VPX Single Board Computer occupies a standard 0.8” slot and is also available in the VITA 48 (VPX REDI) format with covers to support two level maintenance LRM requirements. Air-cooled variants are delivered with 1" front panels.

Available in a full range of environmental build grades, the VPX6-187 Freescale QorIQ VPX Single Board Computer is targeted to the challenging data and digital signal-processing needs of tactical aircraft, armored vehicles and harsh environment naval systems. For retrofit and technology insertion applications, the VPX6-187 VPX Single Board Computer offers a superset of the I/O features of earlier previous generations of Curtiss-Wright VME 18x Power Architecture SBCs. As a member of our continuously evolving stream of Power Architecture Single Board Computers including the SVME/DMV-179, 181, 182, 183, 184, and the VPX6-185, the VPX6-187 VPX Single Board Computer supports the life-cycle model of successive technology insertions throughout a platform’s lifetime.

The VPX6-187 OpenVPX Single Board Computer is supported by a wealth of software including Curtiss-Wright's standard U-Boot, Wind River VxWorks and Wind River Linux Board Support Package (BSP) and Driver Suites supporting both AMP and SMP operating modes. An INTEGRITY BSP is available from Green Hills Software. LynxOS-178 and LynxOS 7 support is available from Lynx.
