NEW AITECH VME SBC COMBINES POWERFUL PROCESSING WITH
Chatsworth, CA, March 2005 – Aitech Defense Systems, Inc., a world leader in the development and manufacture of board and subsystem level products for harsh environment defense, aerospace and space applications, has announced its rugged new C106 Single Board Computer (SBC), a VME64x-compliant solution featuring up to 1.5 GHz of processing power and 4 GB of on-board NAND Flash memory. The new SBC is designed to satisfy the demands for expanded I/O capabilities and powerful processing in harsh-environment applications, such as mission computers, remotely piloted vehicles, fire control processing, platform stabilization and mission control subsystems.
The integrated on-board NAND Flash memory, which functions similarly to a USB memory stick without the need for a PMC site or USB interface, is independent of user application program Flash. In addition, the newly upgraded C106 features Flash Memory Manager (FMM) software that automatically treats the Flash memory as the system’s disk drive, with automatic wear leveling to ensure that write-erase cycles are uniformly balanced across the entire device, preventing any one block from wearing out. The board’s unique, on-board Flash File System (FFS) is perfect for storing large local maps and databases as well as capturing Sigint waveforms, radar or sonar images, mission data profiles, and health data.
Built around a high-performance Motorola PowerPC G4+ MPC7447A microprocessor
with integrated on-chip L1 and L2 caches, the unit provides an unprecedented
The C106 supports several real-time operating systems (RTOS) including WindRiver VxWorks, Green Hills INTEGRITY and INTEGRITY-178, and TimeSys Embedded Linux. Other RTOS Board Support Packages are available upon request. An extensive firmware package is supplied with each board – including startup software, diagnostic tools, and monitoring/debugging tools.
Users can specify C106 SBCs to meet one of three levels of ruggedization – commercial, rugged, or military. The boards are also available in both air-cooled and conduction-cooled formats, each as a single-slot 6U module.
