Aitech C112 - 12 Core QorIQ VPX SBC

Up to 4 GB (ECC) DDR3 RAM, 2 XMC/PMC Slots, up to 6Gigabit Ethernet


The C112 is the new generation Aitech PowerPC based product targeting the new VPX (VITA 46.0) and OpenVPX (VITA 65) platforms.

At the heart of the C112 is a Freescale T4 Series QorIQ System-on-Chip (SoC) multi-core, multi-thread processor, with on-chip high speed L1 and L2 caches, and numerous integrated bus, memory, and I/O controllers.

C112 memory resources include large and fast DDR3 SDRAM, NOR Flash for firmware, user application, and data storage, MRAM for user/application specific parameter storage, and a high-density NAND Flash array for mass storage.

Integrated on-board I/O resources include Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 ports, MIL-STD-1553, SATA II, serial ports, and general-purpose discrete I/O channels.

To complement its extensive capabilities and provide extended resources and flexibility, the C112 is equipped with two industry standard PMC/XMC slots.

The C112 mechanical and electrical design guarantees its operation over the full range of rugged application environments. It is available in industry standard 0.85" pitch conduction-cooled or 1" pitch aircooled orm factors. The conduction-cooled version is also available in a VITA 48 (VPX REDI) compliant version with 1" pitch, supporting two level maintenance requirements.

ExpansionVPX Core Fabric – 10GbE(XAUI)/PCIe Gen2/SRIO
OpenVPX Compliant
Two PMC/XMC Slots:
• PMC Slots supporting 64-bit PCI/PCI-X buses @ up to 133 MHz
• XMC Slots supporting PCIe x8 Gen 2.0
ElectricalThe C112 is designed to take its main power from 5V (VS3) or 12 V (VS1 + VS2). When working from 12V, the C112 still draws 2 A from the 5 V supply. When the C112 takes its main power from 5 V, no 12 V supply is required.
