Please consult the board-support guide or contact us for specific platform features supported.

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.
