Kontron VX3240

VX3240 is a low-power 3U VPX SBC featuring a quad-core Freescale P2041  QorIQ™ device with quad PowerPC e500mc cores at 1.2 GHz. VX3240  supports up to 8 GB DDR-3 SDRAM and provides a wide range of I/Os  including Gigabit Ethernet, GPIOs, PMC/XMC I/Os, USB, SATA and serial  ports. With such a feature set, VX3240 is the ideal general purpose  solution for SWaP-C constrained embedded applications. Coupled with Kontron Long Term Supply policy, VX3240 is the perfect migration path to a new 10+ year period of deployments for PowerPC-based applications in the Military, Aerospace and Transportation markets.
