Aitech Ai-VM163S - 4th Generation Intel Core i7 6U VME SBC

Up to 8GB (ECC) DDR3L RAM, 1 XMC, 1 PMC Slots, Gigabit Ethernet


Aitech’s Ai-VM163S is a high-performance 6U VME SBC for embedded commercial and industrial applications. The heart of the Ai-VM163S 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 Ai-VM163S integrates large on-board RAM (DDR3L) and mass storage (SATA Flash disk) resources to support processor and user application needs.

In addition to its high-performance processor architecture, the Ai-VM163S provides a variety of popular I/O interfaces to meet a wide range of system requirements. Expandability and further flexibility are provided by two industry standard mezzanine slots – one PMC and one /XMC.
