GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms offers the VG6 rugged single board computer (SBC), which features the MPC8640 and MPC8640D low-power Power Architecture processors launched by Freescale Semiconductor.

The company has been working closely with Freescale to enable the VG6 to provide optional support for the MPC8640 and MPC8640D, giving an alternative solution designed to create less heat. Freescale said the MPC8640 (D) processor consumes up to 27 percent less power than its equivalent MPC8641 (D).

The VG6 also supports the Freescale MPC8641 and MPC8641D processors based on Power Architecture technology. The 6U VME VG6 is available as a dual node/single node; dual node/single node SBC; and is designed for high performance in harsh environments such as military/aerospace and industrial automation and more benign environments such as medical and scientific applications.

The VG6 can be configured as a single MPC8640 single core; single MPC8640 D dual core; dual MPC8640 single core; and dual MPC8640D dual core solution, with x8 PCIe adapter between the nodes. The same options are available for customers choosing the 8641 and 8641D options. Each node can be configured with up to 2Gbyte of DDR2 ECC memory.

Support is provided for 3Gbit Ethernet ports as well as two 10/100Mbit Ethernet ports. Two SATA ports are provided for optimum disk storage performance, while extension slots are provided for both PMC/XMC (PCI-X 133 or x8 PCIe) and PMC (PCI-X 100).
