Aitech’s C900 is one of the first 3U CompactPCI SBC to provide a powerful processing engine encapsulated in a small form factor designed for harsh environment applications. Powered by Freescale’s advanced G4+ MPC7447A/7448 PowerPC® microprocessor with its large integrated on-chip L1 and L2 cache, the C900 provides extremely high computing power. To ensure high reliability under extreme operating conditions the C900 is capable of accurate temperature self-monitoring and power dissipation control through on-board temperature sensors.
The C900 implements large on-board memory arrays to support the processor and user application needs. Memory resources include up to 1 GB fast DDR (Double Data Rate) SDRAM with ECC protection, 128 MB
User Flash, 64 MB Boot Flash, up to 2 GB Flash File (NAND Flash) and 128 kB NVRAM for user/application specific parameter storage.
In addition to its high performance processor architecture, the C900 provides a variety of I/O capabilities integrated on board. I/O interfaces include two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two high-speed serial communications ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and up to eight general-purpose discrete I/O channels. To further expand its capabilities, the C900 is equipped with an industry standard PMC slot allowing for installation of additional modules and functionality.
The C900 may perform as either the CompactPCI system controller or as a peripheral board. When configured as system controller, the C900 can of support up to six additional cards on the CompactPCI backplane, providing clock, arbitration and interrupt capabilities.
The highly integrated design of the C900 guarantees unmatched performance and versatility for a rugged conduction or air-cooled PowerPC 3U CompactPCI SBC.
