RadiSys EPC-6 / EPC-6A VMEbus Controller

  • 1-Slot, VMEbus Controller
  • Intel 80386SX Processor (EPC-6) or Intel 486DX2 CPU (EPC-6A)
  • (1) EXM Expansion Slot
  • IBM PC Architecture Compatible
  • (2) RS-232 Serial Ports


RadiSys EPC-6

The RadiSys EPC-6 is a high-speed VMEbus module based on the Intel 80386SX processor. The 386SX has a 32-bit programming architecture but a 16-bit external data bus archi-tecture, combining the power of the 386 software environment with a compact and low-power hardware product. The EPC-6 can perform VMEbus master accesses, can be a VMEbus slave (by having its dual-port DRAM mapped onto the VMEbus), can be configured as the VMEbus slot-1 system controller, and can be an interrupter and interrupt handler. The EPC-6 is also a computer compatible with the IBM PC hardware architecture. The standard version of the EPC-6 contains, in ROM, a PC compatible BIOS and a ROM-based version of Microsoft MS-DOS. The EPC-6 also includes on-board nonvolatile flash memory supported as a DOS-compatible solid-state disk and file system. The user can store one or more embedded applications on the processor board and have them automatically invoked at system start-up. Another feature of the EPC-6 is a slot for an EXM expansion module. This allows some of the I/O of the EPC-6 to be customized for a particular application. The EPC-6 also has a slot for a coprocessor. You can add a 20MHz 80387SX floating-point coprocessor.

RadiSys EPC-6A

The RadiSys EPC-6A, a high-speed VMEbus module based on the Intel 80486DX2 processor, is a redesign of the EPC6 VMEbus module which is based on Intel 80386SX processor.
The EPC-6A computer is also compatible with the IBM PC hardware architecture. You can use the EPC-6A to perform VMEbus master accesses, act as a VMEbus slave, configure as the VMEbus SLOT-1 system controller, or act as an interrupter and interrupt handler.

The standard version of the EPC-6A contains, in ROM, a PC-compatible BIOS and a ROM-based version of Datalight ROM-DOS. The EPC-6A also includes on-board nonvolatile flash memory supported as a DOS-compatible solid-state disk and file system.

Product Family: EPC-6A, EPC6A, EPC 6A, EPC-6, EPC6, EPC 6

InstraView™ Equipment Inspection

Buying used equipment doesn't always have to be a shot in the dark. We know there are plenty of differences when it comes to used equipment and quite often, choosing between different pieces is difficult, especially when the equipment is not sitting right in front of you.
