VME and VPX apps are known for their durable packaging as the harsh environments they typically traverse are par for the course. But what about the processor that powers the application? High reliability is not an option. It’s mandatory. To the rescue: e2v’s PC8640/8641D and PC8640/8641 “extended-reliability versions” of Freescale’s MC8640/8641 32-bit single and dual-e600 core processors. e2v’s PC8640/8641D and PC8640/8641 are 32-bit processors, operating at extended temp ranges of -55 ?C to +125 ?C and available in CBGA Hi-TCE 1,023-pin packaging.
Manufactured according to Freescale 90 nm processes, e2v’s PC8641(D) offers dual or single e600 cores operating as fast as 1,500 MHz. Meanwhile, the PC8640(D) includes dual or single e600 cores at speeds up to 1,250 MHz. Since behind every fast processor stands a fair amount of memory, e2v’s wares feature two memory controllers in 64-bit DDR2 style to enable the cores’ bandwidth requirements. The two processors – well-suited for video processing, defense guidance, and cockpit displays – additionally comprise dual I/O ports, a serial point-to-point link, and two eight-lane PCI Express ports.
