Built around the architecture of the QorIQ P4080 eight core processor from Freescale Semiconductor, these single board computers offer a significant increase in performance when compared to their predecessor, while operating within the same power envelope.
They support both symmetric and asymmetric multiprocessing, and can be supplied with either eight or four e500mc cores, which can each operate at up to 1.5GHz and up to 8GB of dual channel DDR3 memory.
This profile ensures the systems are well suited for use in even the most demanding applications, with five levels of ruggedization enabling them to be used in any environmental conditions.
Significant flexibility is also offered with these single board computers, with the inclusion of two XMC/PMC sites and an AFIX site accommodating almost any customer application.
In addition, PPC10A embedded computers are fitted with:
- two Gigabit Ethernet ports (with an additional two ports optionally available)
- two Serial ATA ports
- two USB 2.0 ports (three additional USB 2.0 ports are optionally available); and
- 31 GPIO ports.
