NVTP1001

NVTP1001

Intelligent carrier for PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMC)

The NVTP1001 is an intelligent carrier for PCI Mezzanine Cards (PMC) in 6U cPCI (compact PCI) form-factor based on the Motorola MPC8280“PowerQuicc II” Power PC CPU. It is targeted at all kinds of telecommunications or networking applications with a need for a powerful and versatile interconnection platform such as SS7, ISDN, ATM, VoP or any combination of protocols. The NVTP1001 enables full use of any functionality provided by internal interfaces and the microcode of the Motorola MPC8280“PowerQuicc II” ( i.e. IMA, ATM etc.) by utilizing an onboard central switching resource. This unique and open design enables the customer to flexibly interconnect between any type of network physics on a one slot single board computer in a generic and easy way.


Hardware

The NVTP1001 is a 64bit/66MHz PCI rev. 2.2 compatible hot swap (PICMG2.12) cPCI carrier board for any kind of PMC module. It also provides the functions required for operation in cPCI system slot position 1 and complies to PICMG2.5 (H.110) and PICMG2.16 (IP-Backplane). It offers two PCI Rev. 2.2, P1386.1 / Draft 2.4a compatible 32bit/33MHz PMC extension slots for use with any standard PMC module. The I/O connector (P14) of each of the PMC sites is individually connected to the onboard Routing Pool. This Routing Pool implements the central switching capability of the NVTP1001 in a large onboard programmable FPGA performing any signal routing between CPU I/O, H.110, PMC I/O and cPCI I/O. By using the FPGA the type of I/O interface to the PMC slots can easily be customized to be SPIbus, UTOPIA2, SCBus, TDM or any other. As well as the possibility of using any PMC module on any of the two onboard PMC sites, the NVTP1001 offers a 1000 Megabit/sec (Gigabit) Ethernet interface. The Gigabit Ethernet is available at the front panel, either via an RJ45 1000BaseT connector or by an optical fibre connector. For general purpose use, the NVTP1001 offers two RS232 serial interfaces on the front panel as well as a real time clock. Equipped with up to 256MB SDRAM, 512kB separate onboard programmable boot Flash-Memory and either 16 or 32MB onboard programmable Flash-Memory the NVTP1001 is optimized to meet the performance and memory requirements of state-of-the art communication protocols and 3G wireless and broadband applications as well as the requirements of next generation networks. Software development and debugging is supported by the onboard BDM/JTAG interface.


Firmware

As well as a large variety of FPGA codes for the Routing Pool, communication protocols like TCP/IP, SS7, ISDN, etc., are available as binary firmware images. By default these firmware protocols run on the well proven N.A.T. real-time kernel OK-1, which is optionally available in source code. Also available for the NVTP1001 are BSPs for other operating systems such as VxWorks. N.A.T. offers standard protocol adaptions for the NVTP1001 as well as customized firmware development.
