Creative Electronic Systems Launches 3U OpenVPX Module with a 24-core Freescale QorIQ T4240 Processor
Creative Electronic Systems today announced the RIOV-2440, the newest CES 3U OpenVPX single board computer in a compact, rugged form factor, ready for the most challenging applications requiring very high performance, both in I/O and calculation. The RIOV-2440 features the Freescale QorIQ T Series T4240 communications processor, with 12 dual-threaded cores supporting 24 virtual cores.
“The RIOV-2440 packs a lot of performance into a very small package, making it ideal for SWaP-sensitive High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) applications”, stated Hervé Garchette, CEO, CES. “We are excited to be able to provide this much performance and functionality to application developers who will be amazed at the processing power and the full complement of I/O of this SBC.”

The RIOV-2440 provides the T4240 processor with up to 12 GB of high-speed DDR3 memory in three separate banks, 2 GB of onboard Flash, and direct I/O connections to the backplane. The overhead of additional switches and bridges is eliminated, while flexibility is provided by the multiple processor I/O configuration options, including the T4240 processor’s PCIe, SRIO, GbE, 10GbE and SATA II ports. It is compatible with most OpenVPX payload slot profiles. The RIOV-2440 provides easy access to the essential I/O on the front panel, as well as complete connectivity on the backplane. Various rear transition modules (RTMs) are available to access the wide range of I/O and debug signals.

“Freescale is pleased that its highly advanced QorIQ T4240 processor has been selected as a key element of this compelling solution from CES,” said Nikolay Guenov, Marketing Director for Freescale’s Digital Networking business. “Featuring a compelling combination of hardware acceleration, fabric-based interconnect technology, high speed I/O, hardware-assisted virtualization and high performance 64-bit Power Architecture cores, the QorIQ T4240 is well suited to meet the demanding requirements of CES’ compelling new offering.”

A standard element of the CES OpenVPX family, the RIOV-2440 is compatible with the other 3U VPX boards from CES, including the ETS-8227 multi-protocol switch, the VCP-2864 video compression board, and the FIOV-2310 FPGA processor board. An Advanced Board Management Controller (aBMC) is implemented for VITA 46.11 support, configuration management, event logging and other supporting tasks. It is fully compatible with the CES Configuration, Load and Monitor (CLM) tool.

The RIOV-2440 is delivered with the classic CES PPCMon bootloader and monitor application, and an extended BSP for Linux, VxWorks or Integrity. In addition, a wide range of enablement tools and software is available from Freescale and third parties.
