GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms is offering its rugged CM6 3U CompactPCI SBC with either a single- or dual-core Freescale PowerPC MPC8641 processor operating at up to 1.33GHz and supports up to 1Gbyte of DDR2 SDRAM ECC memory.

Designed for applications including military/aerospace, telecommunications, simulation/ training and test and measurement, both system mode and non-system mode are supported.

The CM6 includes two GbE ports and two serial ports (RS232 and RS422/RS485) together with eight general purpose I/Os and flash memory, which allows users to leverage the capabilities of the 64bit/100MHz PMC interface for application-specific purposes.

In either the single core or dual-core version, AltiVec support is provided for advanced floating point applications. Each core is provided with its own Level 1 and Level 2 cache, allowing for a high degree of parallelism.

To enable operation in harsh environments, the CM6 is available in three ruggedization levels with an extended temperature range of -40C to 85C and optional conformal coating. Shock and vibration immunity is designed in with stiffener bars and wedge locks: conformal coating can also be applied on request.

Support for Linux is available as standard: support for Integrity, LynxOS and VxWorks is optionally available.
