Conduction cooled SBC integrates Tundra host bridge

Springfield, Va.—Cornet Technology Inc. has introduced its first conduction cooled VME PowerPC single board computer, the Celero CVME-7448ST-CC.

This latest member of the Celero CVME 7448 family provides a versatile processing platform for signal intelligence applications such as image-, RADAR-, and SONAR-processing that require top of the line performance and low power consumption in rugged environments.

The Celero CVME-7448ST-CC targets the need of military VME designers for conduction cooled single board computers. The SBC incorporates the Tundra Tsi109, a host bridge for PowerPC processors that supports PCI-X, DDR2-400 SDRAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and flash. The Tsi109 enables the Celero CVME-7448ST-CC to lower power consumption, which is a significant advantage for applications operating in harsh environments where air flow cooling is not possible.

Like its sister product the CVME-7448ST, the CVME-7448ST-CC incorporates the latest DDR2 technology, that eliminates memory latency caused by pipeline blockage thus improving performance by up to 9%. Both Linux and VxWork 6.5 operating systems are supported, allowing embedded designers to port existing code and algorithms. Other features of the CVME-7448ST-CC include 512MB DDR2 SDRAM, 256MB flash, two PMC sites for I/O expansion, two high-speed Gigabit Ethernet ports, two serial ports, and two USB 2.0 ports.
