the board has been made be synergy microsystem it seems the board+bsp+vxworks has been sold as "EUROCOM 27xxx"


  • CPU: dual 33 MHz 68060 processors
  • ram: 64 Mbytes, DRAM
  • lan: Ethernet
  • interface: Graphics, SCSI-2, VME 32/64?
  • OS: comes with OS-9, LynxOS, pSOS+, PDOS, VxWorks


  • Memory is provided on a piggyback module allowing it to be easily upgraded
  • Up to 4 Mbytes of FLASH
  • Supports ELTEC's LEB mezzanine bus

Working scheme

is this system (hw-2x68060/vxworks)s.m.p. or a.m.p. ?

it seems that the dual-CPU V460 is featuring a symmetrical architecture allowing the two 68060 CPUs to operate as either tightly-coupled coprocessors sharing the same operating system and peripherals or as two independent CPUs running separate operating systems across separate I/O channels.


If this info is right it should be possible to assign different interrupt level schemes to each CPU via a programmable interrupt control register. In all of these possible arrangements, the dual CPU V460 Series can provide full multi-ported memory access by both CPUs, the VMEbus, and both EZ-bus modules with varying levels of memory protection as required.

vme backplane


Pin row B of the P2 backplane is defined 
by VMEbus specifications and is bussed 
across the entire backplane. Pin rows A 
and C are user configured and, if con– 
nected at all, are normally connected to 
adjacent slots via wirewrap or special ca- 
Because the P2 pinout may vary between 
backplanes or even slots in the same 
backplane, DO NOT INSTALL the V460 
Series  into a system  slot whose P2 
backplane is not compatible with the 
V460 Series’ P2 pin-out. Failure to 
observe this warning can cause the 
complete destruction of many on-board 
components and also voids the product 
The V460 Series pin-out meets standard 
VME specifications for row B, but rows A 
and C will vary according to the EZ-bus 
daughter module installed. Daughter 
board pinouts are shown in the 
associated daughter module manual. If 
no daughter module is present, P2 back- 
plane rows A and C are defined as no-
