PMC PowerPC Board with Gigabit Ethernet, USB and CAN - Product Release from esd electronics, Inc
Introducing the PMC–CPU/440, a PowerPC PrPMC Module with gigabit Ethernet, USB, and CAN offering a powerful CPU core with an embedded processor integrating a DDR2 RAM & serial interface controller, a PCI bus interface, & 2 gigabit Ethernet MACs.
Providing 2 – 4 CAN interfaces controlled by an FPGA IP-Module, the PMC-CPU/440 comes with two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces that are accessible as 1000BaseT via RJ45 connectors at the front panel. The CAN signals are available as TTL only via PMC connector, and all the CAN interfaces allow data transfer rates of 1 Mbit/s. External converters from CAN-TTL to CANISO11898 are available. The PMC – CPU/440 has a RS-232 serial port available via the PMC-I/O connector, and includes a USB 2.0 interface (host or device) at the front panel.
The module comes with DDR2 RAM and flash memories, a double layer capacitor buffered real-time clock (RTC) and a FPGA. esd provides a serial console through an USB device port that integrates a USB-to-serial converter. This is in accordance to modern PC technologies abandoning serial ports. A second serial interface is accessible via the PMC-I/O connector with RS232 signal levels.
The on-board FPGA provides extended flexibilities for specialized applications. The default FPGA functionality includes two high-speed CAN interfaces, IRIG-B time-code decoding and generation and much more. Many FPGA pins are directly connected the PMC P4 IO connector
