Rugged 6U VPX SBC from Aitech delivers integrated on-board I/O resources

Aitech Defense Systems Inc., the world's first and largest independent manufacturer of open architecture electronic boards and subsystem level products for harsh, environmentally-demanding defense and aerospace applications, has introduced a unique, rugged 6U VPX SBC (single board computer) that offers the selection between PCI Express or Serial Rapid IO (SRIO) and a host of on-board I/O ports. Using an integrated dual core PowerPC processor, the new single-slot C110 combines low power performance with increased memory capabilities, making the board ideal for Radar system boot computers, Sonar processors, Video and Graphics engines and single board process and machine control applications.

Because it is built to OpenVPX (VITA 65) and VPX (VITA 46.0) specifications, the C110 is fully compliant with legacy VME operations, such as VME64 per VITA 46.1, while supporting advanced VME protocols including 2eSST and 2eVME. Four x4 ports, are configurable to either Serial RapidIO (SRIO) or PCI Express (PCIe), make up the VPX core backplane fabric. Via the I2C bus, the VPX connectors also provide system level management monitoring of the board's status, including monitoring key, rail voltages and temperatures.

The C110's extensive on-board I/O resources include four Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, two SATA 2.0 ports, six asynchronous serial ports and eight GPIO (general purpose discrete I/O) channels. Additionally, the board comes with two PMC/XMC slots and an optional Aitech I/O module (AIOM) slot for the installation of user-customized I/O interfaces.

The MPC 8640D processor features dual e600 cores operating at 1.25 GHz, each with 64 kB of L1 and 1 MB of L2 on-chip, high speed cache. Additional memory includes a large, fast 2 GB bank of dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM with ECC, 128 MB of user Flash for firmware, user application and data storage functions as well as 8 GB of high density NAND Flash memory for mass storage.

Withstanding extreme military shock and vibration over an extended temperature range of -55�C to +85�C (Mil-Spec), the new C110 remains reliable in extreme environmental conditions. A sophisticated thermal management design enables optimal heat dissipation across the board and heat rejection from the card edges, regardless of whether the board is conduction- or convection-cooled.

Real time operating systems (RTOS) available for the C110 include Wind River VxWorks, Green Hills INTEGRITY and Linux.
