Contec's SPI-C2160-LLVA series, is a PICMG 1.3 SHB (Single Host Board) supporting the Intel® Core i3/i5/i7 and Xeon E3-1200v2 series processors.
SPI-C2160-LLVA series built with dual Intel® Gigabit Ethernet. Two DDR3 long DIMM sockets support system memory up to 16GB. Two SATA 600 ports and Four SATA 300 ports (dual ports via backplane) support RAID 0, 1, 5, 10. Support multiple display by DVI-I (DVI-D + VGA) on bracket and HDMI ports. The SBC also equipped with four USB 3.0 ports (dual ports on bracket). It can offer 5Gbps data transfer rate which is higher than the current USB 2.0.
To meet bandwidth of storage and expansion cards requirement, the SPI-C2160-LLVA series were designed flexible with four PCI Express lanes via backplane. Those four PCI Express lanes could be four PCI Express x1 links or one PCI Express x4 link by different bios support. Four PCI Express x1 links configuration can support more PCI Express x1 devices via backplane and one PCI Express x4 link configuration can support RAID card or special add-on cards such as image processing board. In addition, the flexible configuration can be leveraged with bridge on backplane to support more PCI or PCI-X slots that benefits industries with legacy support. PCI Express x16 from processors can be one PCI Express x16 or two PCI Express x8 or One PCI Express x8 + Two PCI Express x4 by jumper setting with C216 chipset. It only supports one PCI Express x16 with Q77 chipset. Intel C216 chipset be very flexible for customer to adopt with server or non-server BP.
Advanced Management Technology (AMT) 8.0 is feature that SPI-C2160-LLVA series equipped with Xeon E3-1200v2 family and Core i5/i7 processors provides (Core i3 doesn’t support AMT). This technology provides remote access capability via Intel® Gigabit Ethernet controller. The new technology is a hardware-based solution that uses out-of-band communication for system management access to client systems.
