The BVME3000 is a cost effective CPU module providing a good level of CPU performance with a wealth of I/O capability. The heart of the module is the MC68EN360 Quad Integrated Communications Controller (QUICC).
The QUICC offers a range of serial and ethernet communications options built around a 68020 processor core. As a very popular processor the 68360 has extensive third party software available in addition to the OS-9 port from BVM. Also the Background Debug Mode (BDM) enables standalone code to be developed on various host machines and downloaded into the BVME3000 DRAM or Flash for development purposes or field upgrades.
A wide range of I/O requirements can be catered for by the addition of up to four standard plug-on IndustryPack modules.
