Aitech C912

4 GB (ECC) DDR3 RAM, 1 XMC Slot, UP TO 4 Gigabit Ethernet

Manufacturer: Aitech
Aitech C912

The C912 is a VPX PowerPC SBC based on NXP’s T4 Series QorIQ System-on-Chip (SoC) multi-thread processors, with on-chip high-speed L1 and L2 caches, and numerous integrated bus, memory, and I/O controllers. C912 memory resources include large and fast DDR3 SDRAM, User and Boot NOR Flash for firmware, user application, and data storage, MRAM for user/application-specific parameter storage, and a high-density NAND Flash disk for mass storage.

Enhanced processing capabilities and low power consumption make the new board ideal for data-intensive applications in tough military and defence environments.  Uses include HPEC systems, manned and unmanned mission and flight computers, robotics, vision video and imaging processing. 


CPU SpecFreescale T4 Series QorIQ SoC: 8 (T4160) or 4 (T4080) dual-threaded e6500 cores with integrated memory, bus, and I/O controllers. Includes on-chip 32k/32k L1 per core, and 2 MB shared L2 caches per cluster (cluster = 4 cores).

ExpansionOpenVPX (VITA 65) Slot Profiles:
• SLT3-PAY-2F2U (supported by standard configurations of the C912). Payload board, Two Fat Pipes (Factory Configured as PCIe or 10G XAUI), Two Ultra-Thin Pipes (1000Base-BX/KX)
• SLT3-PAY-2F2T (available as a special order option, contact your Aitech representative for more information). Payload board, Two Fat Pipes (Factory Configured as PCIe or 10G XAUI), Two Thin Pipes (1000Base-T)

Backplane PCIe interfaces are configured as two x4 ports by default. Additional port configurations (up to 8 ports) are
available by factory configuration of the PCIe switch firmware, contact your Aitech representative for more information.

XMC slot: PCIe x4 interface supporting Gen2 and Gen1 speeds and port widths of x4/x2/x1, 5 V VPWR supply
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.
