BLUE BELL, Pa., 30 March 2014. MEN Micro Inc. in Blue Bell, Pa., is introducing the G51 3U CompactPCI Serial single-board computer for data acquisition, encryption, simulation, process control, and other communications and processing systems that require intense, reliable data throughput.

The embedded computing board has a high-performance QorIQ processor and standard I/O interfaces on the front and rear of the board. It combines connectivity, flexible configurations, and multi-core computing.

The G51 has soldered components, high shock and vibration tolerance, and operates in temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius for use in harsh environments typically found in railway, automation, avionics, power, and energy applications.

CompactPCI Serial peripheral cards can be added. Using CompactPCI Serial's mesh architecture, all of the board's eight Gigabit Ethernet channels -- three on the front and five on the back -- can be switched to the backplane without hardware modification.

Additional rear I/O includes four PCI Express ports and two SATA II ports, one of which can control an mSATA disk, as well as six USB 2.0 ports. Two additional USB 2.0 ports on the front can also lead to the backplane. Design options include M12 Ethernet front connectors as well as conformal coating for use in dusty and humid environments.

Based on Freescale's P3041 QorIQ quad-core processor, the G51 offers up to 1.5 GHz of processing speed with or without encryption as well as four high performance Power Architecture e500mc cores.

The computer board offers as much as eight gigabytes of soldered DDR3 SDRAM system memory with ECC as well as several board management functions and a Linux BSP. The G51 is compliant to EN 50155 (railway) and is prepared for ISO 7637-2 E-mark compliance (automotive).
