Overview


A 6U Power Architecture VME SBC with flexible DDR SDRAM and flash configurations and an array of on-board peripherals, all in a single slot, provide high performance computing to embedded applications. Up to two Gigabit and two 10/100 Mb Ethernet ports, up to four high speed multi-protocol serial controllers (HDLC, Bisync,..) one serial ATA port, two PMC expansion slots, UARTS, timer/counter and general purpose I/Os. This product is available as a single or dual single board computer. Each processor node on the board has its own DDR-SDRAM bank and its own chipset with peripherals (Asymetric Multiprocessing). The VG5 is also available in a conduction cooled version for rugged computing applications. The VG5 contains an FPGA with a user-reserved area, which allows the user to program application specific I/O functions. AltiVec is supported.

Accessories

VTM2010001, with full PMCIO2 and no GPIO, is a Rear Transition Module (RTM) designed to route I/O signals from the VG5 to interface to external peripherals. The 6U x 80 mm rear I/O module must be plugged into the VG5 slot with the backplane in between.

VTM2011001, with GPIO and partial PMCIO2, is a Rear Transition Module (RTM) designed to route I/O signals from the VG5 to interface to external peripherals. The 6U x 80 mm rear I/O module must be plugged into the VG5 slot with the backplane in between.
