The VME-196 is the latest generation 6U VME SBC that combines the performance and the advanced I/O capabilities of the NXP®* Power Architecture® quad-core AltiVec™ enabled T2080 processor. It is supported by Curtiss-Wright’s U-Boot, Green Hills INTEGRITY®, Lynx Software Technologies LynxOS®, Yocto NXP® SDK-based Linux and WindRiver® VxWorks® 6.9 and 7 Board Support Packages (BSPs) and driver suite.
Designed for space constrained applications, it represents the latest step in the evolution of rugged high performance 6U SBCs. It also supports a rich I/O complement per processing node which includes three Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports (two backplane and one front panel), up to six serial channels, discrete and differential digital I/O, SATA, Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 ports and two PMC/ XMC sites. An AltiVec-enabled processor provides four AltiVec engines running up to 1.8 GHz, allowing re-use of your tried and true algorithms, and reducing development cost and schedule, along with slot and power reduction.
