Aitech’s rugged 6U VME single board computer (SBC) brings the powerful QorIQ T1042, or higher performance T2081, multi-core processor to embedded systems, significantly increasing previous generation computing capabilities. The C114 is backward compatible with Aitech’s popular earlier generation PPC-based C106 and C108 boards, while incorporating the NXP Secure Boot and Trust 2.0 Architecture for improved data security.
Out-of-the-box functionality enables the C114 to be easily integrated into a wide number of applications, including advanced fire control, SatComms processing and multi-gimbal platform stabilization as well as avionics mission management and flight control, servo, process and machine control, and more.
Supporting either the T1042 and T2081 QorIQ PowerPC processors, the new C114 allows users to balance power, functionality and performance with the cost targets needed to satisfy their program requirements. The T1042 QorIQ PowerPC provides four e5500 cores, while the T2081 provides four e6500 cores, each with a dedicated AltiVec vector co-processor for heavy computational performance.
The C114 meets the commercial, rugged and military environmental requirements per ANSI/VITA 47 in both air- and conduction-cooled versions, and offers a standard operating temperature from -40°C to +85°C, with -55°C also available. Typical power consumption with the T2081 CPU is 22 W, and less than 14 W with the T1042.
