CompactPCI PowerPC board
The CPCI-405 is a CompactPCI board in 3U format. The powerful IBM PPC405GP(r) with clock rates from 200 to 400 MHz enables a performance of up to 608 MIPS. With on-board PCI-arbiter and PCIclock distributor it acts as a CompactPCI host. A mounting option as a CompactPCI adaptor is available. The board is equipped from 16 to 128 Mbyte SDRAM, up to 8 Mbyte Flash and a CompactFlash slot to carry various memory cards. A non-volatile NVRAM enables the CPCI-405 to save valuable process variables during power off sequences.

Network Interfaces
The CPCI-405 comes with an ETHERNET interface for 10 Mbit/s and 100 Mbit/s nets. It is accessible as 10/100BaseT via RJ45 connector in the front panel. The CPCI-405 provides 2 CAN interfaces based on SJA1000 CAN controllers. One of them according to ISO 11898 with electrically isolation and a DSUB9 connector, the other one as TTL only via PCB connector. Both CAN allow data transfer rates of 1 Mbit/s. One of two serial ports is available as RS-232 via RJ12 connector, the other one as TTL only via PCB connector.

Software Support
The flash memory carries the standard ‘U-Boot’ program that enables the CPCI-405 to boot various operating systems from network, on-board Flash or CompactFlash. Thus Linux, VxWorks and QNX6 are directly supported with full support of on-board drivers by esd, others on request. There is also a bunch of higher layer protocols like CANopen, DeviceNet as well as an on-board web server available.
