e20xx / e21xx computer modules

Computer modules for iX5100 series.

Computer moduler for iX5100 series

e20xx / e21xx computer modules are based on the industrial standard Qseven (R) but have been adapted for Unibap’s space computer solutions. The products use AMD 1st and 2nd generation G-series SOC processors with up to 4 CPU cores and 128 GPU cores. The modules contain 2.5 GB of DDR3 RAM with error correction (ECC / EDAC), of which 2 GB is connected to the AMD processor and 0.5 GB is connected to the FPGA which is from the Microsemi SmartFusion2 family.

The unit is monitored by a FreeRTOS software running in ARM Cortex-M3 in FPGA while AMD runs on 64 bit Linux operating system.

Unibap e20xx/e21xx computer module.

The computer modules have multiple clocks for monitoring the correct functionality in the radiation environment. Furthermore, the modules support Unibap’s hardware functions for execution control, SafetyChip and SafetyBoot, which enable external operation monitoring of the x86 processor. In addition, voltages, currents and temperatures are monitored in the module.

The computer modules have 330 I/O which include:

  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • PCIexpress generation 2
  •  LVDS
  • SerDes
  • USB 2.0
  • USB 3.0
  • SATA v3
  • CAN v2.0b
  • SPI
  • I2C
  • UART
  • GPIO
  • LPC
