Aitech U-C8770

SOSA™ aligned, up to 32 GB (ECC) DDR3L RAM, XMC Slot

Manufacturer: Aitech
Aitech U-C8770

Aligned with The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA™), the U-C8770 3U VPX SBC is an adaptation of Aitech’s high performance, rugged C877 SBC, and retains the same key technical features and benefits, including proprietary, hardware-based cybersecurity features.  It is ideal for I/O-intensive data processing applications in the military and aerospace markets, such as RADAR, signal intelligence (SIGINT), electronic warfare (EW) and sensor signal processing.

ExpansionThe following SOSATM slot profiles are supported by standard configurations of the U-C8770:
• SLT3-PAY-1F1F2U1TU1T1U1T-14.2.16 3U I/O Intensive SBC PICP
Supports all 4 associated module profiles (Dash Num options) of MOD3-PAY-1F1F2U1TU1T1U1T-16.2.15-n
• PCIe data/expansion plane supports up to Gen2 or Gen3, depending on the CPU option selected
• Ethernet data plane support uses the optional Xilinx UltraScale+ FPGA (it must be installed). An FPGA IP core for 10GE/40GE Ethernet support can be provided upon customer request
• Support for DisplayPort interface requires a compatible add-on graphics XMC
