Aitech C802 - 1st Gen Intel Core i7 3U cPCI/CompactPCI SBC

Up to 4 GB (ECC) DDR3 RAM, PMC/XMC Slot, 2 10/100/1000 Ethernet


Aitech’s C802 is a high-performance 3U CompactPCI SBC (Single Board Computer) for embedded and harsh environment applications. The C802 is based on Intel's Calpella (Arrandale + ECC) platform comprising an i7 dual-core/four thread (Intel Hyper-Threading® Technology) processor with large integrated on-chip L1, L2, and shared L3 caches with a companion QM57 PCH I/O controller hub. 

The processor’s integrated 2D/3D graphics controller supports graphics and video processing and provides RGBHV and DVI output channels.

The C802 integrates large on-board memory arrays to support processor and user application needs. Memory resources include up to 4 GB of fast DDR3 SDRAM with ECC protection and up to 64 GB of SATA SSD (based on NAND Flash media) for user/application-specific parameter storage.

In addition to its high-performance processor architecture, the C802 provides a wide variety of I/O, including two Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, one SATA II port, two UART ports, up to eight general-purpose discrete I/O channels, and high-definition stereo audio I/O. To further expand its capabilities, the C802 is equipped with an industry-standard PMC/XMC slot. 

The C802 is available with complete Board Support Packages (BSP) for a variety of operating systems.

The highly integrated design of the C802 guarantees unmatched performance and versatility for a rugged conduction or air-cooled 3U CompactPCI SBC. To ensure high reliability under extreme operating conditions the C802 is capable of accurate temperature self-monitoring and power dissipation control through on-board temperature sensors.

The C802 is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions.
