3U OpenVPX PowerPC SBC - 68PPC2

3U OpenVPX PowerPC SBC with two I/O and communications function module slots—
Over 70 different modules to choose from

Customer-configurable 3U PowerPC SBC

NAI’s 68PPC2 is a 3U OpenVPX, NXP® QorIQ® T2080 quad-core processor, PowerPC-based, Single Board Computer (SBC) that can be configured with up to two intelligent function modules. Ideally suited for rugged defense, industrial, and commercial applications, the 68PPC2 delivers off-the-shelf solutions that accelerate deployment of SWaP-optimized systems.

Adaptable Architecture

NAI’s Configurable Open Systems Architecture™ (COSA®) offers a choice of over 70 intelligent I/O, communication, and Ethernet switch functions, providing the highest packaging density and greatest flexibility of any 3U SBC in the industry. Preexisting, fully-tested functions can be combined in an unlimited number of ways quickly and easily. Each I/O function has dedicated processing, unburdening the SBC from unnecessary data management overhead.

NAI's NXP® PowerPCTM QorIQ® T2080 based SBCs offer a feature-rich, low power/low cost solution for current and future generations of rugged military-aero, SWaP-constrained embedded applications.

Board Support Package (BSP) and Software Support Kit (SSK)

The 68PPC2 includes BSP and SSK support for Wind River® VxWorks®. In addition, SSKs are supplied with source code and board-specific library I/O APIs to facilitate system integration.

Background Built-In-Test (BIT)

BIT continuously monitors the status of all I/O during normal operations and is totally transparent to the user. SBC resources are not consumed while executing BIT routines. This simplifies maintenance, assures operational readiness, reduces life-cycle costs and— keeps your systems mission ready.

Eliminate man-months of integration with a configured, field-proven 3U OpenVPX PowerPC SBC from NAI.
