Aitech C874 - 5th Generation Intel Core i7 Haswell 3U VPX SBC

Up to 16 GB (ECC) DDR3L RAM, XMC/PMC Slot, up to 4 Gigabit Ethernet


Aitech’s C874 is a high-performance 3U VPX SBC for embedded and harsh environment applications. The heart of the C874 is Intel's Broadwell platform, featuring a 5th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core processor with integrated HD Graphics 5600, 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 and HDMI/DVI outputs.

The C874 integrates large on-board RAM (DDR3L) and mass storage (SATA Flash disk) resources, and provides a variety of popular I/O interfaces to meet a wide range of system requirements. Expandability and further flexibility are provided by an industry standard PMC/XMC slot.

The C874 is also pinout compatible with Aitech's C873 4th Gen. Core i7 (Haswell platform) SBC.

C874 mechanical and electrical designs guarantee operation over the full range of rugged application environments. It is available in industry standard conduction-cooled and air-cooled form factors.
