The CES RIOV-2440 is a 3U OpenVPX™ SBC featuring the QorIQ® T4240 processor from Freescale® in a compact, rugged form factor

The RIOV-2440 features the QorIQ® T4240, the first Advanced Multiprocessing SoC from Freescale®, with 12 dual-threaded cores. The 24 virtual cores of the T4240, along with the associated AltiVec® technology SIMD engines and hardware accelerators, provide excellent performance for calculation-intensive applications. The integrated I/O peripherals and the data-path acceleration architecture (DPAA) guarantee the highest performance for I/O-intensive applications. The CoreNet™ fabric provides very efficient point-to-point interconnection between the multiple cores and peripherals, making the T4240 the ideal choice for applications requiring very high performance, both in I/O and calculation. The hardware-assisted virtualization support enables the safe and flexible partitioning of applications on the multiple cores.

The RIOV-2440 supports the T4240 processor with up to 12 GB of high-speed DDR3 memory in three separate banks, 2 GB of onboard Flash, and direct I/O connections to the backplane. The overhead of additional switches and bridges is eliminated, while flexibility is provided by the multiple processor I/O configuration options, including PCIe, SRIO, GbE, 10GbE and SATA II. It is compatible with most OpenVPX™ payload slot profiles.

As the first SBC with the T4240 processor, the RIOV-2440 is intended for air-cooled applications and laboratory models. It provides easy access to the essential I/Os on the front panel, as well as complete connectivity on the backplane. Various RTM modules are available to access the wide range of I/O and debug signals.
