Everyone wants more: more cash, more horsepower, more leisure time. But when it comes to power consumption on SBCs Ö less is more. So GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms began pressuring Freescale for lower-power versions of the company's MPC 8641/8641D PowerPCs. The result was the 27 percent lower-power MPC 8640/8640D. Mounted on GE Fanuc's 6U VME VG6, users can configure the SBC with one or two 8640s, as well as 8641s or 8641Ds (for legacy compatibility or configuration-managed programs). Each CPU node can be equipped with 2 GB of DDR2 ECC memory, with an x8 PCI Express adapter between nodes. There's a total of five Ethernet ports (three Gbps; two 10/100 Mbps), two SATA ports, four serial ports, and six USB 2.0. extension slots provide for PMC/XMC. As well, GE Fanuc's DSP220 VXS and DS230 VPX boards can be equipped with MPC 8640/8640D processors.
