CM6Click to Zoom

The CM6 is a 3U CompactPCI SBC with integrated dual core or single core Freescale MPC8641 Power Architecture processor providing high performance computing. The MPC8641D follows the system on a chip approach by integrating the memory controller, Ethernet channels, PCI Express as well as UARTs and timers. The CM6 provides a unique feature set, including up to 1 GB of DDR2 SDRAM with ECC, system and non-system mode support for the CPCI backplane, one PMC interface (64-bit/100 MHz). A high level of functional integration (two Gigabit Ethernet, two serial interfaces (RS-232 and RS-422/485), Flash and GPIOs) within a single slot gives users the freedom to use the PMC for their application-specific I/O. Supported operating systems are Linux, and VxWorks. LynxOS and Integrity are available on request. The CM6 is designed for RoHS compliance.
