Multicore Performance with Integrated Ethernet Switch
The G40A from MEN is an NXP ARM Cortex A72 LS1046A CPU module in CompactPCI Serial form-factor. Equipped with the quad-core CPU with NXP data processing accelerators, fast PCI Express 3.0, future-ready USB 3.0, SATA Gen. 3 interfaces, Ethernet interfaces on front and an integrated Ethernet switch, the G40A provides unprecedented power, speed, and communication advantages.
The G40A secures your application for the future by being full-virtualization ready – memory and I/O sub-systems can be virtualized – and available for the next 15 years.
The MEN proprietary board management controller (BMC) monitors the G40A optional parameters such as voltages, temperature and provides a user-configurable watchdog, making it ready for applications where functional safety is required.
The memory configuration of the G40A includes a fast DDR4 DRAM with ECC soldered to the board to guarantee optimum shock and vibration resistance. A non-volatile SRAM, an eMMC NAND Flash device and a microSD card can also be assembled offering space for user applications or usable as a local boot medium.
The G40A is prepared for use in harsh environments, making it an ideal solution where small space but high-processing capabilities are needed. It comes with a tailored heat sink, all components are soldered for protection against shock and vibration and it is also coated for use in humid and dusty environments.
