Aitech’s C163 is a high-performance 6U VME SBC (Single Board Computer) for embedded and harsh environment applications. The heart of the C163 is Intel's newest platform (Haswell), featuring a 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core processor with integrated HD Graphics 4600, coupled with a companion Lynx Point QM87 I/O Platform Controller Hub (PCH).The processor’s integrated 2D/3D graphics controller supports graphics and video processing and provides RGBHV (via PCH) and two HDMI/DVI outputs.
The C163 integrates large on-board memory arrays to support processor and user application needs. Memory resources include up to 16 GB of dual-channel DDR3L SDRAM with ECC protection and up to 128GB of SATA flash disk storage for user/application-specific mass storage. In addition to its high-performance processor architecture, the C163 provides a wide variety of I/O, including four Gigabit Ethernet ports, seven USB 2.0 ports, two SATA II ports, four UART ports, 12 general-purpose discrete I/O channels, two CANbus ports, and high-definition stereo audio I/O. To further expand its capabilities, the C163 is equipped with two industry-standard PMC/XMC slots.
The C163 is VME64x compliant, and supports VME advanced protocols such as 2eSST and 2eVME while maintaining full compliance with legacy VME operation.
C163 mechanical and electrical designs guarantee operation over the full range of rugged application environments. It is available in industry standard conduction- and air-cooled form factors.
