At the heart of the 3DR family architecture is the 3DR-S5-T4240 Processor Module. This module consists of a Power PC (Freescale T4240) general purpose and communications processor, an Intel® Stratix® V FPGA, on board DDR3 memory modules and a combination of PCIe Gen 3, LVDS, and SERDES commercially available I/O modules. The processing modules also provide quad 10G Ethernet ports, JTAG, and UART-over-USB. The variety of available standard interfaces promotes network connectivity with a wide range of 3rd party systems and subsystems. This includes commercially available switches and routers and promotes the integration of a system-of-systems in a net-centric environment. The 3DR standard micro-controller architecture is interfaced through the I2C bus to provide FPGA and PPC temperature, voltage, current, and clock monitoring for automatic shut-down during critical over heat and/or voltage conditions. As with all 3DR modules, the 3DR-S5-T4240 board supports 3D connectivity, allowing the user to stack and/or tile modules to address a wide variety of processing, I/O, size, weight and power requirements.
