3U VPX Module with Freescale Dual-Core QorIQ P2020 Processor
Page 1 of 1
An air- or conduction-cooled 3U VPX single-board computer (SBC) is based on Freescale Semiconductor’s dual-core QorIQ P2020 processor. The XPedite5570 from Extreme Engineering Solutions provides a low-power, high-performance SBC for Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) constrained military applications. Consuming less than 20 watts, the XPedite5570 can host nearly any high-performance, FPGA-based, A/D or camera-interfaced XMC module for UAV surveillance applications.
The XPedite5570 features include the Freescale QorIQ P2020 processor with two 1.2 GHz Power Architecture e500 cores along with up to 4 Gbyte of DDR3-800 ECC SDRAM and up to 16 Gbyte of NAND flash and 256 Mbyte of redundant NOR flash. The board provides two x4 PCI Express VPX data-plane links as well as two 1000BASE-X Gigabit Ethernet VPX control-plane links to the backplane. There are additionally two optional 1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet links to the backplane. Additional interfaces include one XMC/PrPMC site, two serial ports and one USB port.
Operating system support includes board support packages (BSPs) for Green Hills Integrity, Wind River VxWorks and Linux. The XPedite5570 is engineered to scale from air-cooled commercial (0° to 55°C) to conduction-cooled rugged (-40° to +85°C) specifications with appropriate shock and vibration testing to satisfy military applications with MIL-STD 810F/G requirements. Pricing varies depending on memory configuration and ruggedization level.
