6U VME64x IFF Computer
 

PDF print version of this specification

The 6U VME64x IFF Computer is a single slot, 64-bit PowerPC-based computing system with a wide variety of inputs and outputs as well as multi-function interfaces. The IFF Computer host board uses a dual-core NXP MPC8640D or QorIQ T2080 processor and provides three Gigabit Ethernet channels, two serial UARTs, NAND and NOR flash memory.

Two companion XMC adapters provide multiple I/O options. As standard, the first companion XMC adapter provides two dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553B channels, nine ARINC 429 channels (six input and three output), four RS-232/422/485 channels and 2 MByte of Parallel Non-Volatile NVRAM. The second companion XMC adapter provides the modern Xilinx Artix-7 series FPGA which is configured with a dual-channel high-speed 160 MSps Analog-to-Digital converter, eight RS-422/485 channels and 32 Low Voltage Transistor-Transistor Logic (LVTTL) I/O signals routed to the backplane connector, as well as eight SMD LED signals from the User FPGA. This FPGA is user-programmable.

The 6U VME64x IFF Computer is compatible with any 6U VME64x backplane and complies with VITA 1.1-1997 R2003 with the exception of the reduced depth.

The 6U VME64x IFF Computer has multiple memory and CPU speed configurations and is available in commercial grade air-cooled, industrial grade air-cooled and ruggedised grade conduction-cooled versions.

Architecture

The IFF Computer consists of a VME64x host board, having a PowerPC MPC8640D or QorIQ T2080 processor and two PMC/XMC sites, with a PCIe switch linking the XMC sites to the MPC8640D processor.

Two companion XMC adapters are used to provide access to multiple I/O interfaces and options, as well as the Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA. The PMC I/O signals are connected to the VME64x P2 and P0 connectors on the backplane.
