EmPower EP2AClick to Zoom

The EP2A 6U VME SBC features a processor node with the Discovery V Integrated System Controller with a Power Architecture 7448 processor and DDR2 SDRAM, in combination with a unique and highly flexible set of I/O features to provide high performance computing to numerous rugged computing applications. In addition to standard SBC capabilities such as USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet, the EP2A features four fast HDLC-capable serial channels, making this single board computer ideal for many communications-oriented embedded applications.

The EP2A’s I/O flexibility comes from its two PMC sites and its AFIX site, the latter supporting a range of useful plug-ons including dual MIL-STD-1553B interfaces, SCSI, graphics and Flash memory modules. The AFIX site is also a useful option to add custom functionality at minimum cost and in minimum time.

Available in five air- and conduction-cooled build levels to provide rugged computing, the EP2A is fully supported by comprehensive Deployed Test Software (BIT and BCS) and BSPs for VxWorks from Wind River Systems, LynxOS from LynuxWorks and Integrity from Green Hills Software.
