Power and Flexibility / Customer Configurable IO via Personality Modules

This product is End-of-Life.

The Orion VPX7705 Single Board Computer (SBC) is the industry’s most flexible, rugged, high-performance Dual Core PowerPC VPX SBC in today’s embedded marketplace. By incorporating the power of the Freescale MPC8640D™ and the unparalleled complement of I/O via the customer configurable “Personality Modules”, we can adapt this product to practically any Military, Industrial or Commercial application. The VPX7705 is available in 4 levels of ruggedization from commercial temperature air-cooled (0.8” pitch) to extended temperature REDI (Vita 48.2, 0.85″ & 1.00” pitch). With two VPX 4-lane PCI express fabric ports and an 8-lane PCI express XMC slot, the VPX7705 design has streamlined high-speed board-to-board communication. The VPX7705’s 2 Gb Ethernet ports, 2 serial ports, 3 USB 2.0, 8 general purpose IO and PMC P14 or XMC P16 IO are all accessible through VPX connectors P1 and P2.
