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.
