Pentek Inc. has introduced a high-performance, four-processor VME board with two expansion module sites. Model 4295 has VIM (velocity interface mezzanine) and PMC sites that provide high-speed, buffered I/O port for functions such as digital receivers and wide-bandwidth data acquisition.

The board packs four MPC7410 PowerPC processors into a single-slot 6U VME board, providing as much as 16GFLOPs of floating-point signal processing power. Each PowerPC processor has its own Marvell GT-64260 node controller with a local SDRAM controller and dual 64-bit 66MHz PCI bus interfaces.

Three on-board 64-bit PCI buses facilitate interprocessor communication, and connection to global memory, backplane I/O, and VMEbus.

The 4295 is offered in 400MHz and 500MHz speed grades, supports as much as 128MB of local memory for each processor, and is priced at $15,995.
