PMC-106 7447A PrPMC
The PMC-106 Processor PMC (PrPMC) card is a high performance PowerPC processor PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC). The high performance PowerPC processor features the Freescale Power Architecture MPC7447A processor at speeds up to 1.0 GHz. This PrPMC can be used in a variety of control plane applications or areas where a small form factor solution is required. The high performance PCI-X interface is capable of operating up to 133 MHz and enables this processor PMC card to process and move data efficiently to and from the host. The PMC-106 is designed to be VITA-32 PrPMC compliant. It is capable of operating as a system Monarch or non-Monarch.
The PMC-106 Processor PMC is equipped with up to 512 Mbytes of ECC-protected DDR SDRAM and 64 Mbytes Flash program memory. A single 10/100/1000Base-T ethernet port as well as two EIA-232/422 asynchronous serial ports are available through the Pn4 connector to the rear panel. Two thermal sensors, 8 Kbytes of FeRAM, JTAG emulation ports and six discrete LVTTL signals round out the peripherals. The PMC-106 PrPMC does not support front panel I/O, but uses the Pn4 connector to route out all rear panel I/O.
The PrPMC includes a Discovery II bridge that provides a four-channel DMA controller which is typically used for managing transfers between processor node memory banks and transfers to and from PCI devices. Various features such as four 32-bit counter/timers, an integrated 2 Mbit SRAM, DDR SDRAM controller, I2C interface, a watchdog timer, an interrupt controller and several multi-purpose I/O pins combine to make the PMC-106's Discovery II a powerful system controller.
