VMEbus SBCs Based on Low-Power Core2 Duo Processor
A VMEbus single board computer (SBC) is designed to meet the needs of users requiring the low-power Intel processor and high performance, for their demanding applications. The Intel Core2 Duo processors offer energy efficiency, workstation performance and extended lifecycle support. The new LV1 boards from Themis Computer support the Linux, Sun Solaris 10 and Windows Operating Systems, and are suitable for compute-intensive commercial, medical and industrial applications, as well as demanding military and aerospace applications.
Themis’ LV1 is based on the low-power Intel Core2 Duo SL9400 processor with 45nm process technology that provides users with improved energy-efficient performance. Intel’s hafnium-based 45nm Hi-k silicon process technology enables even more processor performance by doubling transistor density and increasing cache size by up to 50 percent. The result is improved speed and efficiency, relative to previous-generation dual-core Intel processors. Intel Core2 Duo processors provide the bandwidth necessary to support the high-performance I/O features of the LV1 board.
The LV1 base configuration includes: Intel Core2 Duo processor, four gigabytes of DDR II memory, three Gigabit Ethernet ports, three SATA II ports, four USB 2.0 ports and two XMC/PMC slots. An onboard ATI ES1000 video controller is provided with either front or rear panel VGA access. Storage can be provided through the use of an onboard CompactFlash or with an optional onboard SATA drive. The board includes optional VITA 41 dual Gigabit Ethernet to support the modern highly networked environments.
The LV1 has extensive I/O. Two expansion sites provide a wide variety of configurations. Expansion Site 1 can be configured with up to 8 Gbytes SoDIMM memory or an XMC/PMC slot, SATA Hard Drive or 2 GbE ports to the front panel. Expansion Site 2 can be fitted with an XMC/PMC Slot or a connection to a PMC/XMC carrier card, which enables the use of up to three additional PMC/XMC cards. Additionally, it can connect 2 GbE ports to the front panel. These configuration options enable the LV1 to bring workstation performance to a 6U VME form factor. The LV1 and its three-slot XMC expansion board are fully RoHS compliant.
