The MEN PowerPC based CompactPCI PlusIO SBC by Dominion Electronics is controlled by an MPC8548 PowerPC processor with clock frequencies between 800 MHz and 1.5 GHz. The unit features ECC-controlled, soldered-on DDR2 RAM for data storage, with up to 16 GB of solid-state Flash disk for program storage as well as industrial FRAM and SRAM.
The SBC offers up to three Gigabit Ethernet channels, six USB ports, up to two SATA interfaces and up to 64 user-definable I/O lines controlled by an optional onboard FPGA. These interfaces can be combined in many variations and are available at the front or at the rear using the board's J2 connector.
The J2 pin assignment and connector type are in compliance with the PICMG 2.30 CompactPCI PlusIO standard. Two USB and two RJ45 Ethernet connectors are included at the front panel, and space is left for an optional VGA connector.
