The PP1 is controlled by an MPC5200/B PowerPC® that operates at 384 MHz. The complete PCI-104 module is exclusively available for -40 to +85°C operating temperature, as is the MPC5200 itself. The CPU consumes less than 1 W at 384 MHz.
The PP1 provides up to 128 MB SDRAM for data and 16 MB Flash memory for program storage as well as 64 KB FRAM. The bus interface is a 32-bit 33-MHz PCI bus. The PP1 provides two optically isolated RS232 and one Fast Ethernet interface at its front panel. Two CAN controllers are included in the MPC5200. The physical CAN interface can be located on SA-Adapters™ or on the carrier board. The board also features a real-time clock and watchdog.
The PP1 comes with MENMON™ support. This firmware/BIOS can be used for bootstrapping operating systems (from disk, Flash or network), for hardware testing, or for debugging applications without running any operating system.
The PP1 is an industrial computer which is designed to operate under harsh environmental conditions. It complies with the PCI-104 specification and can be stacked with other PCI-104 boards or mounted on different types of carrier boards.
