A21 - Flexible 6U VMEbus on New and Powerful QorIQ™
The VMEbus single-board computer A21 is a cost-effective 6U PowerPC® card with a fast VME64 interface and comes with the most up-to-date PowerPCs of the QorIQ™ series. It uses tried and tested, flexible mezzanines to offer nearly unlimited possibilities in embedded applications, particularly in industrial automation, but also in medical and railway engineering.
The single-core P1013 or the dual-core P1022 processor of the QorIQ™ family allows clock frequencies of up to 1.067 GHz and serial communication. At the front, 2 Gigabit Ethernet channels and one RS232 COM interface are provided. Further I/O functions such as USB 2.0, UART COM, a display interface and further interfaces are possible as customer options.
The most prominent feature of the card, however, is the use of two XMC or PMC modules on the A21C version, or three M-Modules™ on its sister design A21B.
By plugging in standard modules, the board becomes a semi-custom solution in a fast and easy way, using a broad offer of different I/O functions like graphics, additional Ethernet or process I/O for industrial applications.
