VME64x PowerPC SBC delivers high performance per watt

Springfield, VA.—Cornet Technology Communications, a division of Cornet Technology, Inc., announced its latest VME64x PowerPC single board computer, the Celero CVME-7448ST.

The Celero CVME-7448ST incorporates the Tundra Tsi109 host-bridge controller and DDR2 memory technology to enhance COTS VME64x single board computers still widely used in real-time/embedded military and aerospace programs.

By integrating Tundra's Tsi109 host-bridge controller technology, the CVME-7448ST offers higher performance per watt, a key consideration of military embedded applications with tight power budgets. The CVME-7448ST is also said to deliver better signal integrity, providing significant improvement over older generations of VME PowerPC single board computers.

By incorporating the latest DDR2 technology, memory latency caused by pipeline blockage is eliminated, improving performance by up to 9% and reducing power consumption by up to 6-W compared with boards using older technology, Comet said.

The CVME-7448ST board supports both Linux and VxWorks 6.3 operating systems, enabling embedded designers to easily port their existing algorithms and code. The board's design offers 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.

Pricing: Starts at $4,600.
Availability: Late October 2007.
