TQ presents the smallest PowerQUICC II Pro module of the world

Latest version of the Pecore® family of modules based on the PowerQUICC II Pro processors from Freescale

(PresseBox) (Weßling, ) Occupying an area of only 70 mm x 50 mm and smaller than a credit card, the PQII-Pro module offered by TQ is the world's smallest.

Yet this minimodule has all the performance needed inside - integrated with Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, SATA and PCI-Express which provide more than sufficient performance reserves for the next generation of em-bedded applications. Fast I/O connection can be implemented just as easily as linking to large mass-storage devices, as can fast and efficient networking is as well. All of this provides the optimum capabilities required for use in industrial controls demanding high-end performance.

The familiar robust connector system that has proven successful for years now in applications used in railways, track systems, and aircraft utilizes 320 pins to ensure reliable operation even under the most severe condi-tions of shock and vibration. The entire module consumes a theoretical maximum of only 5 watts, while ratings measured for typical applications are 2-3 watts at a core frequency of 400 MHz. This simplifies both the power supply and as well as the cooling design.

A model is also available featuring allowable temperature limits of -40°C to +85°C for use in especially hot or cold environments.

The ability to boot directly from the NAND flash can eliminate the need for NOR flash and offers an eff ctive means of cost reduction. Of course the NAND flash can be used to provide mass-storage combined with the reli-ability of NOR flash for the purpose of acquiring critical data and programs. The small installation size together with the low power loss provides the ideal specifications for use in low-cost, small, and fanless systems.

TQ-Components offers the plug-and-play starter kit STK85xxNG to facilitate fast and simple implementation, and also as an evaluation board.

The TQ Group - The entire world of electronics

The TQ Group is composed of TQ Systems, TQ Mechanics and TQ Components. Founded in 1994, the system supplier TQ Systems develops and produces elec-tronic modules and systems according to customer specifications. In the corporate family, TQ Mechanics is responsible for mechanical production. TQ Components markets embedded systems and industrial PCs developed and produced by TQ systems. The TQ Group has over 720 employees. Overall sales attained € 115 million in business year 2007/2008.

Range of performance of TQ-Components

One of the strengths of the company are the own embedded TQ modules. TQ offers the entire line of controllers: In addition to 16-bit and 32-bit Infineon modules, the line includes a wide selection of Freescale, VIA, AMD and Intel-based processor boards and Xilinx FPGAs. The modules score a hit due to their minimal dimensions and long-term availability and meet high quality demands. Industrial compatibility and a longevity are a top priority at TQ.

Another important pillar of the company is industrial PCs. They set themselves apart through their sturdiness and long-term availability. The space-saving mini-industrial PCs stand out due to their high level of modularity. The customer can achieve his own individual solution without the need to acquire unnecessary product components.
