6U PICMG 2.16 C2K SBC delivers I/O flexibility and ruggedised options:

  • 1 GHz Freescale MPC7447A or (1.4) MPC7448 powerPC processor
  • Conduction-cooling and ruggedised options
  • Flexible I/O expansion
  • PICMG 2.16-compliant

Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) and hot swap capability

GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, a leading provider of embedded computing technology, has released new 6U CompactPCI C2K Single Board Computer (SBC).

The C2K uses the 1 GHz MPC7447A or 1.4 GHz MPC7448 Freescale processer and extensive I/O ports for improved performance and flexible, rugged functionality.

The C2K integrates the Marvell MV64460 system controller (Discovery III) bridge chip, which includes a high speed DDR333 SDRAM controller with 167MHz interface that can service memory up to 1GBytes.

For increased I/O expansion, the C2K hosts two 64-bit IEEE1386.1 PMC sites, and the PLX PCI 6254 CompactPCI Backplane Bridge allows the C2K to operate as a system controller or peripheral processor card.

The IPMI and hot swap capabilities of the C2K make field operation and maintenance easier by allowing the end-user to constantly monitor system status and, when required, change boards without shutting down an entire system.

The C2K available from Metromatics gives engineers a great deal of flexibility with multiple I/O, including three Gigabit Ethernet ports, four RS-232/RS-422 ports, four RS-422/485 ports, two 1.5Gbps SATA ports, and three high-speed USB 2.0 ports.

The convection model also provides one high-speed USB 2.0 port at the front panel and 16 programmable GPIO ports with independent interrupts.

Optional configurations are available for customers who want to use the C2K in industrial applications that require extended temperature operations.

The C2K is available now with VxWorks, Linux or Windows XP support and will be RoHS-compliant.
