GE Intelligent Solutions' PPCM2 (formerly by Radstone) further extends the XtraPower family
of dual processor boards, offering high-performance processing and I/O interfaces from two fully independent
compute nodes. With enhanced high bandwidth inter-board communications via 2eSST VME and onboard StarFabric,
PPCM2 is ideal for a wide range of compute-intensive, real-time applications.
Each compute node features the PowerPC® 7448 processor and Discovery III Integrated
System Controller supporting high-capacity DDR SDRAM, Flash memory and NVRAM. In addition each node supports
its own dedicated I/O resources including GPIO, Serial and Gigabit Ethernet plus its own PCI-X-capable
PMC. Shared resources include further GPIO and USB 2.0 plus 2eSST VME and two StarFabric ports.
The PPCM2's loosely coupled architecture targets demanding real-time applications with
each node running separate instances of the chosen operating system. Mission-critical applications can
also benefit from Radstone's comprehensive Deployed Test software for the PPCM2.
