Kontron's AM4101 Advanced Mezzanine Card, based on the 1.5-GHz dual-core Freescale PowerPC MPC8641D, delivers up to 2.3 MIPS/MHz computing performance. With the integrated Altivec 128-bit vector processing unit, the device expands system design capability. It supports four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. Processing intense applications, such as encryption, multimedia encoding and decoding, image and video processing, as well as digital subscriber line access multiplexer, speech recognition, and base station, will benefit from the vector processing unit that works to minimize cache pollution while processing massive amounts of data. The unit includes up to 2 GB of soldered DDR2-SDRAM, up to 2 GB of soldered NAND Flash, and EEPROM for user and configuration data.
