Model 4295 Quad PowerPC Processor VME Board (Pentek Inc)
Targets embedded applications that require high-performance interfaces
Four Motorola MPC7410 processors Floating-point AltiVec vector processing engine 400/500 MHz clock speed Four 2 MB L2 cache memories Four 32 MB or 128 MB SDRAMs High-performance VIM mezzanine site PMC module site Triple 64-bit PCI bus VME64 master/slave interface Optional 267 MB/sec RACE++ interface
The Model 4295 Quad G4 Power PC VME Board supports numerous high-speed interfaces, including VIM, PMC, RACE++, VME64, and Ethernet.
Four identical processor nodes contain interface and memory resources ideally matching the I/O capabilities of the MPC7410. Each of the four nodes includes local memory and access to shared global resources and interfaces.
Two processors are equipped with their own VIM I/O connector, providing private, high-speed synchronous, bidirectional FIFO, which buffers 32-bit parallel data transfers between the mezzanine module and the MPC7410. Also included is a PMC mezzanine site that accepts industry-standard PMC modules for a wide range of interface and communication functions. The PMC module is accessible from all processors and the VMEbus.
The Model 4295 includes a PCI bridge and SDRAM memory controller that also includes a powerful DMA engine useful for moving data between resources on the board.
Wind River's VxWorks BSP provides developers with a complete library of hardware initialization, control, and application functions. Used in conjunction with Wind River's Tornado II software development environment, it speeds application development. MPI Software Technology's VSI/Pro, an implementation of VSIPL scientific and engineering functions optimized for the PowerPC, and Pentek ReadyFlow board support libraries are also available for the Model 4295.
