Cleveland, OH — Oct 20, 2011
Embedded Planet, a leader in embedded computing and systems solutions (www.embeddedplanet.com), is announcing an addition to their line of Advanced Mezzanine Cards. Our new EP5020A extends our line of Freescale QorIQ architecture Advanced Mezzanine Cards and provides the high performance of a 64-bit dual-core processor, said Mark Lowdermilk, CEO of Embedded Planet. The EP5020A is a single width, full height AMC processor board featuring the high performance Freescale QorIQ P5020 dual-core PowerPC processor operating at up to 2.0GHz. The highly integrated multi-core processor makes the EP5020A a natural fit for combined control and data plane applications on a single board, thereby reducing system cost, thermal budget and power consumption. The EP5020A is built for a range of computationally intensive applications in wireless base stations, media gateways, enterprise network access systems, and test and measurement systems. The high performance classic floating point unit (FPU) combined with 64-bit data transfers result in a high computational capacity that creates a powerful solution for Defense and Industrial applications. The built-in RAID 5/6 and Data Path accelerators allow for high-reliability storage area networks (SAN), server blades and network attached storage (NAS) that feature Policy Control and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI).
For fabric connectivity the EP5020A offers extreme flexibility, while maintaining standards compliance. All versions of the board support SGMII on channel 0, compliant with AMC.2, Type E2. Channels 2 and 3 support SATA. The fat pipe region of the AMC (channels 4 - 11) can be configured on a build basis to support combinations of 10G Ethernet XAUI, Gen 2 PCI express, and SRIO 1.3/2.1 controllers.
