The VG6 is designed to meet the needs of high-performance embedded applications. It addresses such markets as industrial automation, medical, scientific and aerospace where real-time and/or signal processing are needed. This SBC is a very flexible product, with dual or single node configuration of the Freescale 8641D/8641 processor, and this board is Freescale 8640D/8640 ready for those applications requiring less power/heat. The ultra compact 6U single slot, all-in-one design with flexible memory, Flash configurations and on-board peripherals includes up to three Gigabit (VITA 31.1-compliant), up to two 10/100Mbit Ethernet ports, up to four UARTS, up to six USB ports, two serial-ATA compatible ports, two PMC extension slots and timer/counter.Combined with custom assembly for specific applications, the VG6 provides optimum price/performance for all kinds of OEM applications. The VG6 rugged version addresses extreme environment applications with optional conduction cooling, which extends the temperature range to -40C to +85C, increased shock and vibration immunity using stiffener bars and wedge locks, and conformal coating. The conduction-cooled VG6 complies with VITA 30.1-2001 and IEEE Std. 1101.2-1992 specifications.
