Aitech C6100 - High Performance Ruggedized PowerPC® SBC

Up to 2 GB (ECC) DDR SDRAM, 2 PMC Slots, 2x 10/100/1000 LAN

Introduction

The Aitech C6100 is a ruggedized, single-slot PowerPC® SBC based on the Emerson's new MVME6100® family of VME processor modules. The C6100 features the MPC7457 G4 PowerPC processor at speed of up to 1.267 GHz for the air-cooled version, and 1.0 GHz for the conduction-cooled configuration, ideal for computation-intensive applications.

The C6100 is the first VMEbus single-board computer (SBC) designed with the Tundra Tsi148 VMEbus interface chip offering 2eSST VMEbus performance. The 2eSST protocol allows the VMEbus to run at up to a practical bandwidth of 320 MB/s. To ensure that the C6100 can handle the 320MB/s data rates of 2eSST, the Tsi148 VMEbus interface chip is connected to one of the 133 MHz PCI-X buses on the host bridge.

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

The C6100 utilizes leading edge technologies such as Emerson's low power, high-performance PowerPC processors, a 100 MHz PCIbus for high throughput on-board peripherals, a new integrated Ethernet bridge and memory controller designed by Marvell, and a sophisticated VMEbus interface, to achieve levels of performance and functionality not previously possible.

The DSP-like AltiVec technology incorporated into the PowerPC processor, allows the C6100 to be used for an assortment of vector processing applications.
