Aitech C5110 - High Performance Ruggedized PowerPC® VME SBC

Up to 2 GB (ECC) DDR SDRAM, 2 PMC Slots, 2x 10/100 LAN


The Aitech C5110 is a ruggedized, single-slot PowerPC? processor module based on the new Motorola® MVME5110 family of VME processor modules. Available in two models, the C5110 features Motorola’s 400 or 500MHz MPC7410 PowerPC? microprocessor with the highly anticipated AltiVec technology for algorithmic-intensive computations.

This implementation of the Motorola PowerPlusII VME Architecture® provides the highest performance and I/O versatility available on a rugged VME board.

The C5110 utilizes leading edge technologies such as Motorola's low power, high-performance PowerPC processors, the 33 MHz PCIbus for high throughput on-board peripherals, a new integrated PCI bridge and memory controller designed by MCG, and a sophisticated VME interface to achieve levels of performance and functionality not possible on any other rugged VME board.

Ideal for a variety of military, aerospace, and industrial applications that require supercomputing levels of performance, the C5110 offers support for dual PMCs, providing an open standard for convenient and flexible I/O expansion, and up to 1GB of ECC protected SDRAM.

With its standard mechanical format, this module can be installed into any IEEE 1101.2 conduction cooled VME chassis or ANSI/VITA 1-1994 standard air-cooled, providing a truly COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) solution suitable for embedded systems applications in any kind of harsh operating environment.
