Aitech’s C162 is a high-performance 6U VME SBC (Single Board Computer) for embedded and harsh environment applications. The C162 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, and a companion QM57 PCH I/O controller hub.
The processor’s integrated 2D/3D graphics controller supports graphics and video processing and provides CRT and DVI output channels.
The C162 integrates large on-board memory arrays to support processor and user application needs. Memory resources include up to 8 GB fast DDR3 Dual Channel SDRAM with ECC protection and a SATA Flash SSD of up to 128GB for user/application-specific parameter storage.
In addition to its high-performance processor architecture, the C162 provides a wide variety of I/O, including four Gigabit Ethernet ports, seven USB 2.0 ports, two SATA II ports, four UART ports, up to 12 general-purpose discrete I/O channels, two CANbus ports, and high-definition stereo audio I/O. To further expand its capabilities, the C162 is equipped with two industry-standard PMC/XMC slots. The C162 is VME64x compliant, and supports VME advanced protocols such as 2eSST and 2eVME while maintaining full compliance with legacy VME operation.
C162 mechanical and electrical design guarantee operation over the full range of rugged application environments. It is available in industry standard conduction- and air-cooled form factors.
