AITECH A180
Introduction

Aitech's A180 Multi-Role Computer (MRC) is a full-featured compact computer suitable for many harsh environment applications. The MRC is a modern and flexible product comprising a set of standard off-the-shelf Aitech boards, firmware packages, power supply, and enclosure that have been specially configured and integrated to satisfy a broad range of mission requirements.

The MRC is housed in a two-slot VME enclosure. One slot is populated with a central processing unit (the C106 VME SBC) hosting two PMCs (PCI Mezzanine Card) – an Aitech M590 graphics/video PMC and an Aitech M222 mass storage PMC. An Aitech C437 VME slave digital/analogue I/O board populates the second slot. System hardware also includes a built-in navigation receiver (GPS or GLONASS depending on the system configuration).

The A180 MRC provides extensive processing, control, and I/O functionality to support a wide variety of military and aerospace system applications.
