Powerful cPCI Serial SBC with ARM Cortex A72 and Virtualization Functions

The G40A is a high-performance and low-power multicore CPU platform based on an ARM Cortex A72 processor. Being full-virtualization ready, it was designed for communication-intensive applications in harsh environments, which need high data bandwidth and computing performance, e.g. in data collection applications onboard trains, in industrial or heavy-vehicle applications.

  • Quad-core ARM Cortex A72
  • Virtualization-ready
  • Up to 8 GB DDR4 (ECC), non-volatile SRAM
  • Front I/O: 3 Gb Ethernet, 1 USB 3.0 host, 1 USB configuration port (RS232)
  • Rear I/O: 2 PCIe lanes, 4 USB 2.0, 1 SATA, 8 Gb Ethernet
  • -40°C to +85°C, version with fanless operation possible

 

 

Multicore Performance with Integrated Ethernet Switch

The G40A from MEN is an NXP ARM Cortex A72 LS1046A CPU module in CompactPCI Serial form-factor. Equipped with the quad-core CPU with NXP data processing accelerators, fast PCI Express 3.0, future-ready USB 3.0, SATA Gen. 3 interfaces, Ethernet interfaces on front and an integrated Ethernet switch, the G40A provides unprecedented power, speed, and communication advantages.

The G40A secures your application for the future by being full-virtualization ready – memory and I/O sub-systems can be virtualized – and available for the next 15 years.

The MEN proprietary board management controller (BMC) monitors the G40A optional parameters such as voltages, temperature and provides a user-configurable watchdog, making it ready for applications where functional safety is required.

The memory configuration of the G40A includes a fast DDR4 DRAM with ECC soldered to the board to guarantee optimum shock and vibration resistance. A non-volatile SRAM, an eMMC NAND Flash device and a microSD card can also be assembled offering space for user applications or usable as a local boot medium.

The G40A is prepared for use in harsh environments, making it an ideal solution where small space but high-processing capabilities are needed. It comes with a tailored heat sink, all components are soldered for protection against shock and vibration and it is also coated for use in humid and dusty environments.
