Extreme Engineering Solutions, Inc. (X-ES) Announces XCalibur1501: A 6U CompactPCI SBC Featuring NXP MPC8572E Processor

Extreme Engineering Solutions is shipping XCalibur1501, the first MPC8572E based 6U CompactPCI board that scales from commercial to full-blown military (conduction-cooled) applications. Targeting NXP’s (formerly Freescale) dual-core PowerQUICC™ III MPC8572E processor, XCalibur1501 is being adopted by commercial, industrial and military system architects demanding high processing performance with low power consumption.

XCalibur1501 is a powerful solution for the next generation of computationally intensive embedded applications and features:

  • NXP (formerly Freescale) PowerQUICC™ III MPC8572E processor with dual e500 Power Architecture® cores at up to 1.5 GHz
  • Two channels of up to 4 GB of DDR2-800 SDRAM with ECC
  • Up to 4 GB of NAND flash and 256 MB of NOR flash
  • PICMG 2.16 backplane Gigabit interface
  • Two SATA 3 Gb/s ports
  • Three USB 2.0 ports
  • Two PrXMC/PMC interfaces
  • In-house X-ES operating system support includes:
    • Green Hills INTEGRITY& Board Support Package (BSP)
    • Wind River VxWorks BSP
    • QNX Neutrino BSP
    • Linux LSP
  • Guaranteed 4-hour technical response to all hardware and software questions

“Early adopters of XCalibur1501 are enjoying high performance, low power and I/O flexibility courtesy of the dual XMC/PMC sites available on XCalibur1501,” states Bret Farnum, Vice President of Sales. “We are seeing Solid-State Memory, Ethernet, serial, and 1553 modules being added to replace EOL or other antiquated CPU solutions,” adds Farnum.

“Extreme Engineering’s continuing MPC8572E product development underscores the company’s expertise in deploying NXP (formerly Freescale) silicon into compelling designs,” said Stephen Turnbull high performance portfolio manager for NXP’s Networking Systems Division. “Offering customers multiple hardware configurations based on world class NXP processors helps our joint customers get to market fast.”

Pricing and Availability: XCalibur1501 is available now from stock; pricing starts at $4,495 and may vary based on processor speed, memory configuration and ruggedization level. Volume discounts are available.
