MEN Mikro G52A - 3U CompactPCI® Serial QorIQ™ Enhanced Network CPU Board

Up to 12 GB DDR3 ECC DRAM Soldered, 0..+40°C Operation

Introduction

MEN Mikro's G52A is a high-performance multicore CPU platform based on Freescale QorIQ T4x series. The G52A is a new branch of CPU boards for CompactPCI Serial specifically designed for high data bandwidth based on PCIe 3.0, PCIe 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet via the backplane. The G52A
provides high data bandwidth on the front panel via two 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces on M12 connectors or on RJ45 connectors (on request). The G52A paired with I/O cards can be ideally used for transferring data from and to storage media, the Internet via LTE, WiFi, copper or ptical Ethernet. Its up to 12 processor cores make the board ideally suited for virtualization applications. Serial interfaces at the rear I/O connectors are one USB 2.0, two SATA interfaces, three PCI Express x4 links and one PCI Express x2 link and three Gigabit Ethernet interfaces.

Three-channel DDR3 DRAM

The memory configuration of the G52A includes a fast DDR3 DRAM with ECC which is soldered to the board to guarantee optimum shock and vibration resistance. A microSD card device offers space for user applications or can be used as a local boot medium.

Board Supervision 

A board management controller provides thermal supervision of the processor and a watchdog for the operating system. The G52A operates in Linux environments or as a development option in VxWorks or QNX environments. 

Perfect for Harsh Environments

The G52A comes with a tailored heat sink within 4 HP height. All components are soldered for protection against shock and vibration according to applicable DIN, EN or IEC industry standards. The G52A is also ready for coating so that it can be used in humid and dusty environments and has a guaranteed minimum standard availability of 15 years. These features make the G52A perfectly suited for harsh environments.
