Unique and highly flexible solution

The EP2A 6U VME SBC features a processor node with the Discovery V integrated system controller and a Power Architecture 7448 processor, in combination with a unique and highly flexible set of I/O features to provide high performance computing in numerous rugged computing applications. In addition to standard SBC capabilities, the EP2A features four fast HDLC-capable serial channels to make this single board computer ideal for many communications-oriented embedded applications.

Add custom functionality

The EP2A's AFIX site supports a range of useful plug-ins including dual MIL-STD-1553B interfaces, SCSI, graphics and Flash memory modules. The AFIX site is also a useful option to add custom functionality at minimum cost and in minimum time.

Rugged by design

Available in five air- and conduction-cooled build levels to provide rugged computing, the EP2A is fully supported by comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS) and BSPs for VxWorks from Wind River Systems, LynxOS from LynuxWorks and INTEGRITY from Green Hills Software.
