When is a PowerPC SBC not exactly a PowerPC? When itís based on the Freescale PowerQUICC-II MPC8548. The MEN Micro A17 packs loads of I/O and processing features onboard because of the high integration found in the PowerQUICC, but the integrated e500 core also includes floating point and an MMU ñ both handy features for mission critical applications that crunch numbers or use partitioned operating systems. Clocking at 1.5 GHz, the board is designed for rough environment use and operates over a -40 ?C to +85 ?C range, includes soldered-in ECC DDR SDRAM (2 GB), flash disk, and FRAM for program storage. There are also front- and rear-panel I/O choices. Two GbE ports are available at the front, with two more via the optional P0 connector. And speaking of VME, this SBC uses Tundraís Tsi148 bridge controller for 2eSST ñ delivering up to 320 MBps over the VMEbus. Two PMC sites are included, and one is XMC-ready for PCIe x1, x2, x4, or x8.
