Manufacturer: Aitech

Aitech’s C870 is a high-performance 3U VPX SBC (Single Board Computer) for embedded and harsh environment applications. The C870 is based on Intel's Calpella (Arrandale + ECC) platform, dual-core processor and four threads (Intel Hyper-Threading Technology) with large integrated on-chip L1, L2 caches and shared L3 Cache with a companion QM57 PCH I/O controller hub.

The processor’s integrated 2D/3D graphics controller supports graphics and video processing and provides RGBHV and DVI output channels. 

The C870 integrates large onboard memory arrays to support processor and user application needs. Memory resources include up to 4 GB fast DDR3 SDRAM with ECC protection and up to 64GB SATA Flash disk for user/application-specific parameter storage. 

In addition to its high-performance processor architecture, the C870 provides a wide variety of I/O, including four Gigabit Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, two SATA II ports, two UART ports, up to eight general-purpose discrete I/O channels, and high-definition stereo audio I/O. To further expand its capabilities, the C870 is equipped with an industry-standard PMC/XMC slot. 

The C870 form factor is 3U OpenVPX. It is capable of communicating with two other PCIe/Ethernet OpenVPX modules in full mesh topology with no need for a switch module. Of course, it can communicate with multiple modules through an OpenVPX switch module.

The C870 is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions.
