MEN Micro Inc. introduces a 6U FPGA-based, triple-redundant 64-bit VMEbus single board computer. The A602 has a triple redundant lock-step architecture that keeps software development at a minimum and increases system reliability.

The single board computer is single event upset (SEU)-resistant and runs the same set of operations in parallel to ensure that the programming only views the hardware components once. It is suited for mission-critical applications in avionics and railway markets.


Key highlights include triple redundancy on a single board; 1-slot 64-bit VMEbus master; 3x redundant PowerPC 750 CPU, up to 900MHz; 3x redundant 512MB DDR RAM; 2x redundant 256MB Flash, ECC; 1x 1MB FRAM, ECC; redundant local PSUs; 1x standard PMC slot; 1x PMC slot for AFDX PMC (rear I/O only); 1x RS232 via front and rear I/O; PMC I/O, board management and more via rear I/O; Compliant with DO-254 up to DAL A; and it operates at -40C to +50C with qualified components.

Pricing for the A602 64-bit VMEbus single board computer is at $12,994.
