Chatsworth, CA, September 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 added two new boards to
its rugged, VME64x-compliant C10x single board computer (SBC) family. The new
1.0 GHz, high performance C101L employs the low power version of the MPC 7457
PowerPC processor, and the 1.0 GHz C106L, which use less than 22W, features a
7447A PowerPC processor.

The new SBCs are 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 4 GB of on-board NAND Flash memory is independent of user
application program Flash and functions similarly to a USB memory stick without the
need for a PMC site or USB interface. The optional Flash Memory Manager (FMM)
software automatically reads and writes the C101L and C106L’s Flash memory. To
prevent any one block from wearing out, the FMM software also incorporates automatic
wear leveling to ensure that write-erase cycles are uniformly balanced across the entire

Storing large local maps and databases as well as capturing Sigint waveforms, radar or
sonar images, mission data profiles, and health data is easy with the boards’ unique,
on-board Flash File System (FFS).

The C101L and C106L feature an unprecedented array of versatile on-board I/O
interfaces, including three fast Ethernet ports, two dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553B
interfaces, two USB 2.0 ports, ten standard UART serial ports, and several types of
single-ended and differential discrete I/O channels. The new boards are equipped for
expansion with two on-board PMC sites and 64-bit, 66 MHz PCI bus on P0, and offer up
to 1 GB of on-board SDRAM operating at 133 MHz.

The C106 SBC product family 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 (BSPs) are available
upon request. An extensive firmware package is supplied with each board that includes
BIT (built-in test), startup software, diagnostic tools, and monitoring/debugging tools.
Users can specify the new low power 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.
