Dynatem (Mission Viejo, CA) offers the Intel® Core-Duo (Yonah) processor-based DPD VMEbus Single Board Computer (SBC). The DPD is a single-slot VMEbus (and VME64) compatible platform and requires only 5V from the backplane, enabling full functionality in legacy VMEbus backplane systems. All major components including processor, chipset, and memory are BGA based. The DPD is an IEEE 1101.2-compliant, conduction-cooled VMEbus module with wedge locks and full-board heat sink for high shock/vibration environments and temperature extremes.

Four onboard Gb Ethernet ports are controlled by two PCIexpress based 82571EB dual 10/100/1000 BaseTX controllers. Front panel I/O interfaces include two Gb Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and front panel I/O for both PMC sites. Two SATA ports, VGA video, two Gb Ethernet ports, four RS- 232 ports, one RS-422 port, an IDE interface, PS/2 mouse and keyboard, and two more USB 2.0 ports are routed to the backplane. An on-board CompactFlash site supports up to 32 GB non-volatile memory that permits single-slot booting. The SBC supports two PMC sites, one of which optionally supports XMC modules.
