QuicKit Telephony - VME Hot Swap
The modular design of our QuicKitTM
architecture makes it possible to rapidly prototype high-performance
multi-channel telephony systems that meet your requirements.
Our small form-factor smPCITM
modules give us maximum flexibility to assemble an end product
customized for your application.
V6M6HS Baseboard with 6 smPCI modules
The hot swap VME bus V6M6HS baseboard consists of a
VME master/slave interface, global DRAM, a local 100 Mbyte/sec PCI
bus and four TDM (Time-Division Multiplexed) serial buses for
inter-module, inter-board communications. The V6M6HS baseboard
provides all of the functionality of the V6M6 and adds the following
- Hot swap capability. This feature allows the V6M6HS to
be inserted into or removed from a live powered backplane without
damage to the V6M6HS or the backplane. Transactions on the VME bus
at the time of insertion or removal are not disturbed.
- H.110 interface. This connection to an industry standard
TDM telephony bus on the VME P2 connector allows up to 512
bi-directional time slots of TDM traffic to flow in and out of the
V6M6HS. Since the H.110 bus (an enhancement of the earlier SCSA
bus) is built into the baseboard, a module site is not required.
- VME64x interface. The V6M6HS implements the enhanced VME64
interface called "VME64x". This involves improved
backplane connectors as well as high performance transfer modes not
implemented in the V6M6's 32-bit VME interface. In addition, the
V6M6HS can act as a "Slot 1" controller, eliminating the
need for a VME host computer in some applications.
- On-board MIPS processor. The
V6M6HS includes a 133MHz MIPS processor on the baseboard.
Although this device, an RC32364 from IDT, is not as fast as the
MIPS processors on PM4700 or PM5000 modules, its presence on the
baseboard may eliminate the need for a PM4700.
- Larger PCI global memory option. The basic memory on a
V6M6HS is 64MB with ordering options of 128MB. This
memory also serves as the local memory of the on-board MIPS
- Flash memory. The on-board MIPS processor subsystem
includes 2MB of normal flash memory. This memory holds the MIPS
boot code and FPGA configuration files. As an ordering option, a
"Nand" flash memory array containing up to 128MB can be
populated on the baseboard. This memory is intended to hold
executables for DSP and/or MIPS processor modules to allow the
V6M6HS assembly to be completely self-initializing.
The V6M6HS offers rapid prototyping and superior
performance. Our smPCITM modules are
small enough to fit six on a 6U VME board delivering the most densely
packed DSP's available in the industry.
