High Performance VMEbus CPU with 1.3 GHz PowerPC CPU, 320 MB/s 2eSST Bus Interface and dual Gigabit Ethernet
ARTESYN Embedded Technologies is committed to providing best-in-class embedded computing solutions. The MVME61006E series reinforces this commitment by providing superior hardware, price performance, and faithfulness to the tenets of open computing: modularity, scalability, portability, and interoperability.

The MVME61006E gets its performance from a MPC7457 1.3 GHz G4 PowerPC processor. The MPC7457 CPU disposes of 32/32 KB L1, 512 KB L2, and 2 MB L3 cache as well as an 128-bit AltiVec™ vector processor according the ARTESYN Embedded Technologies G4 processor architecture. The MVME61006E is available with 512 MB, 1 GB or 2 GB ECC DDR266 RAM (2x133 MHz FSB) and provides 10/100/1000BastTX Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. For applications and operation systems 128MB Flash are available. The boards internal communication takes place via 2 boards internal 64-bit PCI-X busses with 100/133 MHz clock.

The 2eSST VMEbus interface of the MVME61006E achieves a data throughput of 300 .. 310 MB/s via VMEbus in real applications. The maximal data transfer rate is 320 MB/s. Tundra's Tsi148 VMEbus-to-PCI-X bridge handles the 2eSST protocol completely in the hardware and is downward compatible to the existing VMEbus standards. All present VMEbus boards may combined with the MVME61006E.

The boards offers PMC-X slots for two 64-bit/100 MHz PMC modules. By the use of PMC modules IPMC761 or IPMC712,  MVME61006E gets a MVME2600, MVME2700, MVME51xx and MVME5500 compliant I/O pinning on the 4 P2 connector and may combined with the MVME761 or rather MVME712M transition modules. The IPMC modules provide a UW-SCSI, a parallel, and 4 serial interfaces.

Board support packages for LINUX, OS-9 and VxWorks are available.

With PMCspan modules an assembly of up to 4 more 64-bit PMC sites is possible. The MVME6100 comes with IEEE 1101 handles or with standard VMEbus handles.
