The system provides the required interfaces to interface custom modules in the system. The system provides communication bus interfaces like asynchronous communication ports on RS232/422 and two-gigabit Ethernet ports. The SBC also features a watchdog timer, Real Time Clock and comes equipped with Dual PMC / XMC mezzanine sites.

Central Processing Unit
The Motorola PowerPC MPC8548 series of processors deliver unmatched computing power with minimum power dissipation. This increases the reliability over a wide temperature range.
The board comes with up to 1GB of DDR2 SDRAM unit running at 1GHz. It is equipped with an Error Checking and Correction (ECC) mechanism providing a high degree of protection against errors. It is capable of detecting and correcting single errors while alerting when multiple errors arise. The ECC mechanism enhances the system reliability to a great extent.
NOR Flash and NAND Flash
The SBC includes 128 MB NOR flash and 8GB NAND flash that ensures sufficient memory resources for numerous applications.
Power Requirements
The SBC maybe configured to receive all its power from the Rear backplane +5.0V, auxiliary 3.3V supply and generate 1.0V, 1.1V, 1.2V, 1.5V, 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V using the on-board circuitry.
Real Time Clock
The SBC includes a Real Time Clock (RTC) for time and date keeping.
Watchdog Timer
The SBC provides an on-board hardware watchdog timer for programming the required time out interval after which it will reset the board.
I/O Interfaces
Ethernet Interface
The two-gigabit Ethernet interface ports support the standard 10 MB/s, fast 100 MB/s or gigabit 1000 MB/s Ethernet links. The physical interface is a 10BaseT/100BaseTx twisted pair.
UART Ports
The SBC provides standard serial UART ports with one configurable RS-232/422 interface and One RS-422 serial port.
The SBC is equipped with eight pairs user configurable LVDS I/O.
Test and Diagnostic Software
The SBC comes with a complete bundle of firmware containing the following modules:
Boot software for initialization
Diagnostic software tools
Operating Systems Support
The SBC can be made available with Linux, VxWorks and Integrity.
