The Penguin Edge MVME250x single-board computer (SBC) features the NXP® QorIQ® P2010 or dual-core P2020. The e500 v2 core QorIQ processor uses 45-nanometer technology, which delivers an industry-leading performance-to-power ratio with single-core or dual-core frequencies up to 1.2 GHz at less than 8W. This is a perfect migration path for our PowerQUICC processor boards (MVME3100 and MVME4100), as well as our G4 processor boards (MVME5100 and MVME5110).
On-board memory includes up to 2GB DDR3 memory and 512KB non-volatile magnetoresistive random access memory. MRAM is high-speed non-volatile RAM with unlimited read/write access that protects data in the event of a power loss and does not require periodic refresh. MRAM is ideal for critical non-volatile data storage, data logs, dynamic program updates, and dynamic security. In addition the MVME2502 variant has 8GB soldered eMMC solid-state memory for additional rugged, non-volatile storage. Connectivity includes Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, serial ports, SATA port, and either one or two PMC/XMC site with the MVME2500 and MVME2502 respectively. A hard drive mounting kit is available for Serial ATA or solid-state hard drives.
The extended temperature models feature an operating temperature range of -40°C to +71°C - a significant increase over the standard models' 0°C to +55°C range. Acceptable storage temperatures have also been increased, safely accommodating environments from -50°C to +100°C. The rugged variants are capable of operating under up to 5G of vibration (15 to 2000 Hz) and can withstand an 11 millisecond shock of up to 30G. Conformal coating is also available. The MVME250x series is ideal for automation, medical, and military applications such as railway control, semiconductor processing, test and measurement, image processing, and radar/sonar.
