Aitech C800 - Intel Core 2 Duo 3U cPCI/CompactPCI SBC

Up to 2 GB (ECC) DDR2 RAM, PMC/XMC Slot, 2 10/100/1000 Ethernet


Aitech’s C800 is a powerful, rugged CompactPCI SBC (Single Board Computer), based on Intel's latest generation highly integrated, low power and high performance Santa Rosa platform.

Powered by Intel's Santa Rosa platform, comprising Intel Core2 Duo (T7500/L7500/U7500), dual-core processor with its large integrated on-chip L1 and L2 cache, the Express Chipset Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GM965) and I/O Controller Hub (ICH8M), the C800 provides high performance in a 3U CompactPCI SBC for embedded and harsh environment applications.

The on-board graphics controller provides video and 2D/3D graphics processing and output support for various displays.

The C800 integrates large on-board memory arrays to support processor and user-application needs. Memory resources include up to 2 GB fast DDR2 (double data rate) SDRAM, and up to 64 GB SATA Flash disk for user/application-specific parameter storage.

In addition to its high performance processor architecture, the C800 provides a wide variety of I/O, including two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two serial communications ports, two USB 2.0, one SATA II interface, up to eight general-purpose discrete I/O channels, and high definition stereo audio output. To further expand its capabilities, the C800 is equipped with one industry standard PMC slot.

The C800 is available with complete Board Support Packages (BSP) for a variety of operating systems.

The highly integrated design of the C800 guarantees unmatched performance and versatility for a rugged conduction or air-cooled 3U CompactPCI SBC. To ensure high reliability under extreme operating conditions the C800 is capable of accurate temperature self-monitoring and power dissipation control through on-board temperature sensors.
