AITECH’S NEW 3U COMPACTPCI SBC PROVIDES EXCEPTIONAL
FUNCTIONALITY IN A LOW POWER, COMPACT DESIGN
Chatsworth, CA, September 2005 -- Aitech Defense Systems, Inc., a world
the development and manufacture of board and subsystem level products
environment defense, aerospace and space applications, now offers a rugged,
3U CompactPCI (cPCI) single board computer (SBC) that provides powerful
processing and exceptional functionality in a low power, compact design.
The new C900, which accurately self-monitors temperature and controls
dissipation, is ideal for harsh environment applications that require
high reliability under
extreme operating conditions.
Incorporating the low power version of the advanced G4+ MPC7447A/7448
microprocessor with a large integrated on-chip L1 and L2 cache, the C900
1.167 GHz at the industry’s widest temperature range. In addition,
the new board provides
AltiVec support allowing the user to take advantage of the processor’s
The board’s robust memory capacity includes
up to 1 GB fast DDR (Double Data Rate)
SDRAM with ECC protection, 64 MB of user Flash, 32 MB Boot Flash, up
to 1 GB Flash
File (NAND Flash), and 128 kB NVRAM for user/application specific parameter
The NVRAM features a hardware ‘autostore’ technology that stores
upon power fail detection.
Designed around the advanced Marvell’s MV64460 Discovery™ III
that integrates both a memory controller and dual PCI/PCI-X Bridge operating
at up to
133 MHz, the may perform as either the cPCI system controller or as a
board. One of the PCI/PCI-X buses is used internally on the C900 for
with the PMC slot and USB host controller, while the other PCI bus utilizes
backplane interconnection. When configured as system controller, the
C900 is capable
of supporting up to six additional cards on the cPCI backplane, providing
arbitration and interrupt capabilities.
The C900 integrates several on-board I/O capabilities, including two
ports, two high-speed serial communications ports, two USB 2.0 ports
and up to eight
general purpose discrete I/O channels (eight single-ended or four RS-422
channels). The C900 is also equipped with a PMC slot for additional modules
functionality, further increasing the board’s capabilities.
The rugged new SBC is available in both air- and conduction-cooled versions.
Pricing and delivery available upon request.
