Aitech Defense Systems has introduced a 6U VPX SBC suitable for radar system boot computers, sonar processors, video and graphics engines and single-board process and machine control applications.

The SBC offers the selection between PCI Express or Serial Rapid IO (SRIO) and a host of on-board I/O ports.

Using an integrated dual-core PowerPC processor, the single-slot C110 combines low power performance with increased memory capabilities.

It is built to OpenVPX (VITA 65) and VPX (VITA 46.0) specifications and is fully compliant with legacy VME operations, such as VME64 per VITA 46.1, while supporting advanced VME protocols including 2eSST and 2eVME.

Four ports, configurable to either Serial RapidIO (SRIO) or PCI Express (PCIe), make up the VPX core backplane fabric.

Via the I2C bus, the VPX connectors also provide system level management monitoring of the board's status, including monitoring key rail voltages and temperatures.

The C110's on-board I/O resources include four Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, two SATA 2.0 ports, six asynchronous serial ports and eight GPIO (general-purpose discrete I/O) channels.

The board comes with two PMC/XMC slots and an optional Aitech I/O module (AIOM) slot for the installation of user-customised I/O interfaces.

The MPC 8640D processor features dual e600 cores operating at 1.25GHz, each with 64kB of L1 and 1MB of L2 on-chip, high-speed cache.

Additional memory includes a large, fast 2GB bank of dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM with ECC, 128MB of user Flash for firmware, user application and data storage functions as well as 8GB of high-density NAND Flash memory for mass storage.

Withstanding extreme military shock and vibration over an extended temperature range of -55C to +85C (Mil-Spec), the C110 remains reliable in extreme environmental conditions.

The board's thermal management design enables optimal heat dissipation across the board and heat rejection from the card edges, regardless of whether the board is conduction or convection cooled.

Real-time operating systems (RTOS) are available for the C110 include Wind River VXWorks, Green Hills Integrity and Linux.
