MEN Micro D602 Triple Redundant 6U cPCI PowerPC Single Board Computer

MEN Micro announced the 6U FPGA-based, triple-redundant D602 CompactPCI (cPCI) single board computer (SBC). The D602 board uses a lock-step architecture which provides a redundant computing system that runs the same set of operations in parallel, so the programming only views hardware components once. The MEN Micro module is ideal for highly mission-critical applications as found in the avionics and railway markets. Pricing for the D602 starts at $14,193. Delivery is six weeks ARO.

Critical functions, such as voters, implemented as IP cores in the FPGA ensure that at least two of the three redundant components provide the same result to guarantee safety. The system remains completely operational even if one of the three redundant components fails, providing the required availability for highly critical systems.
