PA Semi’s new PWRficient™ family of CPUs delivers ground breaking performance and efficiency: performance per Watt is up to 300% better than existing embedded computing solutions. The first PWRficient™ device – the PA6T-1682M – combines a pair of 2GHz 64-bit Power Architecture™ cores with AltiVec™ compatible VMX instructions, 2MB of on-chip L2 cache, dual DDR2-1067 tm31_block

memory controllers, and 24 high speed SerDes serial I/Os capable of supporting PCI Express, SGMII and XAUI.

The TM31 combines a PA6T-1682M with up to 4GBytes of DDR2 ECC SDRAM and quad Gigabit Ethernet interfaces in a compact PMC/XMC form factor. Carrier connectivity is available through standard PMC and XMC connectors, with support for PCI/PCI-X and up to 16 lane PCI Express. The XMC SerDes lanes can be reconfigured to support XAUI and SGMII if required.

Also available is the TSM1e carrier for XMC modules, supporting bench-top and PC-hosted development in PCI, PCI-X and PCIe x16 slots, and providing access to PMC and XMC user I/O signals.
