VME-186 VME SBC with NXP Power Architecture P4040/4080 Processor

The VME-186 VME Single Board Computer is based on NXP's high-performance Power Architecture QorIQ P4080 SOC multi-core processor. With four or eight Power Architecture cores running up to 1.5 GHz, and up to 8 GB of high bandwidth DDR3 SDRAM, the VME-186 SBC provides high-performance processing and a variety I/O interfaces to satisfy the most demanding requirements of embedded computing. The VME-186 SBC's I/O interfaces include EIA-232, EIA-422/485 serial, USB, Gigabit Ethernet, MIL-STD-1553, SATA, TTL and differential and discrete I/O. The VME-186 includes two mezzanine sites capable of supporting an IEEE 1386 PMC or VITA 42.3 XMC module with 64-bits of Pn4 I/O backplane connectors, as per VITA 35.

Available in a full range of environmental build grades, the VME-186 is designed to meet the challenging data processing and control requirements for embedded systems in tactical aircraft, armored vehicles and harsh environment naval systems. To cost-effectively address a diverse range of military and aerospace applications, the VME-186 is available in a range of air- and conduction-cooled ruggedization levels. All versions are functionally identical, with air-cooled versions (SVME) available in Curtiss-Wright ruggedization Levels 0 and 100, and conduction-cooled versions (DMV) in Levels 100 and 200.

With pinout compatibility with previous generations of Curtiss-Wright SBCs, the VME-186 makes it easy to upgrade to the next generation of processors. For retrofit and technology insertion applications and as a member of our continuously evolving lineup of Power Architecture VME SBCs,  the SVME/ DMV-186 offers a superset of the I/O features of earlier generations of Curtiss-Wright VME including the SVME/DMV-179, 181, 182, 183, 184 and 194 (pinout compatibility) supporting the life-cycle model of successive technology insertions throughout a platform's lifetime.

The VME-186 is supported by a wealth of software including Curtiss-Wright's standard U-Boot, Wind River VxWorks and Wind River Linux Board Support Package (BSP) and Driver Suites supporting both AMP and SMP operating modes. An INTEGRITY BSP is available from Green Hills Software.
