68PPC2 PowerPC single board computer with SAE AS6802 time-triggered Ethernet, ARINC 664 Part 7 (AFDX), IEEE 802.3 and ARINC 429/575 support to provide safety solution for varied applications
North Atlantic Industries, Inc. (NAI) has announced the availability of the 68PPC2 PowerPC single board computer with SAE AS6802 time-triggered Ethernet which will be beneficial in the field of defence, industrial and commercial sectors.
Safety certifiable solution
The 68PPC2-TE1AR1 PowerPC single board computer provides a safety certifiable solution for vehicle management systems, flight control computers, remote data concentrators, remote interface units, actuator interface units and autonomous navigation systems, etc.
The computer system is required where safety critical and time sensitive Ethernet communication is important. This system also finds appropriate usage in rugged defence, industrial and commercial applications.
The 68PPC2 also supports continuous background Built-in-Test (BIT), up to 8 GB DDR3 SDRAM, up to 32 GB SATA II NAND Flash storage, two 10/100/1000 Base-T or 2x 1000 Base-KX Ethernet ports and two USB 3.0 ports.
Adaptability and applications
Ethernet TCP/IP and UDP are the network communications backbone interface protocols and are supported on all NAI products, from boards to systems. Integrating TTEthernet and ARINC 664 Part 7 (AFDX) protocol support into NAI’s COSA architecture offers customers additional adaptability, flexibility and future expansion capabilities in support of smaller, smarter and less power hungry systems.
Integrating full support for deterministic Ethernet and ARINC-429/575 offers customers support of time and space partitioned applications in commercial, military, and aerospace applications The ARINC429/575 module are universal communications standards used for data transmission in multiple platforms.
These functions are integrated into SBC that reduces SWaP while providing flexibility and scalability not currently found in legacy technologies. It also provides a low-risk, cost-effective migration path from best effort IEEE 802.3 to deterministic Ethernet.
