AdvancedMC processor module

4 March 2009 Computer/Embedded Technology

Kontron has announced its new AM4101 advanced mezzanine card (AMC) based on the 1,5 GHz dual-core Freescale PowerPC MPC8641D. The AM4101 delivers up to 2,3 MIPS/MHz computing performance and high Ethernet bandwidth without breaking the power budgets of modular AdvancedTCA carriers or highly-integrated, redundant MicroTCA multiprocessing systems.

With the integrated Altivec 128-bit vector processing unit, the AMC is targeted at both telecom and non-telecom markets such as medical, industrial imaging and military/aerospace. The card supports four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, while processing-intensive applications such as encryption, multimedia encoding and decoding, image and video processing as well as DSLAM, speech recognition and base stations will benefit from the vector processing unit which works to minimise cache pollution while processing large amounts of data.

The AM4101 includes up to 2 GB of soldered DDR2-SDRAM, up to 2 GB of soldered NAND Flash and EEPROM for user and configuration data. The card is fully hot-swappable, which makes it possible to replace the module without shutting down the AdvancedTCA carrier board or the MicroTCA system. A dedicated module management controller is used to manage the board and support IPMI commands and PICMG command extensions, which enable operators to monitor the state of the AdvancedMC module in the system.
