64-Bit VME PowerPC Master CPU

The VME-CPU/T10 is a VMEbus CPU board with 2 XMC/PMC slots. The NXP PowerPC QorIQ T1022 with 1.2 GHz features two 64-bit e5500 Power Architecture® cores with high-performance data path acceleration architecture (DPAA) and network and peripheral interfaces. The local memory bus is 64 bits wide plus 8 bits ECC with an overall capacity of 512 Mbyte. 16 Mbyte SPI Flash for boot loader and 32 Kbit I²C EEPROM for U‑Boot environment offer non-volatile memory spaces. The VME-CPU/T10 is equipped with a second 16 Mbyte backup SPI Flash selectable by jumper that can be used for system recovery, if a system crash occurs during a firmware update.

VMEbus Interfaced by FPGA

The Altera Cyclone V FPGA is connected to the CPU by local bus for low latency data exchange and by PCI Express® for high bandwidth data exchange. The VMEbus master interface offers a A16/A24, D16/D8 (EO) and an SGL arbiter. A VMEbus slave interface is not supported.

XMC/PMC Interfaces

The XMC1 interface comes with 1 lane PCIe bus and the XMC2 interface with 4 lane PCIe bus. They are designed according to VITA 42.3. Both PMC interfaces support 32-bit/66 MHz PCI bus according to PCI Local Bus Specification 3.0.

Gigabit Ethernet

The VME-CPU/T10 is equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces accessible at the front panel. One of the Ethernet interfaces can be routed to VME P2 (100 Mbit/s only).

Console (Serial)

An RS-232 interface is accessible via an RJ45 connector at the front panel and additionally via VME P2 connector.

Software Support

The Flash memory carries the standard boot program “Das U-Boot” and enables the VME-CPU/T10 to boot various operating systems from on-board Flash or network. BSPs from esd are available for OS-9, QNX, VxWorks and Linux . The esd EtherCAT Master stack is available for all supported operating systems.

Customization on Request

- CPU Type
The VME-CPU/T10 is also available with the power saving single core QorlQ CPU T1014 with 1 lane PCIe (therefore only one XMC interface) on request.

- Memory
The memory can be extended with larger MRAM, DDR3 RAM and Flash. An additional serial MRAM is also available. Instead of the battery a Gold Cap can be equipped.

- Extended Temperature Range
If an extended temperature range is requested please ask for the -40 °C … +70 °C version of the VME-CPU/T10.

- Special P0 Pin Routing
A special P0 pin routing according to VITA 35 P4V0-64 or customized routings, e.g. Ethernet, serial or PMC Slot2 J4 are available on request. #

- Health Controller
On request a health controller is available for monitoring of the board's status, as voltages, temperature and board type. Additionally a watchdog can be used.

All these options are available for customized serial production in reasonable quantities. Please contact our sales team for detailed information.
