Emerson Network Power has announced its highest-performance VMEbus single-board computer (SBC), the MVME7100.

Featuring a dual-core PowerPC processor and 2eSST high speed VMEbus interface, the board is designed to enable industrial, medical and defense/aerospace OEMs to add performance and features while providing backwards compatibility to protect their investment in VMEbus technologies.

Incorporating the features of Emerson's embedded controllers and SBCs, the MVME7100 gives OEMs the flexibility to support varying I/O requirements with the same base platform, simplifying part number maintenance, technical expertise requirements and sparing. It also provides optimal speed, which is achieved due to the independence of the PCI busses for each PMC site. In addition, the board's non-volatile memory feature prevents system memory loss in the event of a power loss.

The MVME7100 is based on Freescale's MPC8641D SoC with dual PowerPC e600 processor cores, high capacity DDR2 memory, up to 8Gbyte of NAND flash, PCI-X, USB and 2eSST. The MVME7100 series features dual integrated memory controllers, DMA engine, PCIe interface, GbE and local I/O.

Pricing starts at $5,495. The product will be available in July 2008.
