Aitech Defense Systems Inc. in Chatsworth, Calif., is releasing the high-performance C108 rugged 6U single-slot VME single-board computer (SBC) for use in new and legacy military embedded applications. For new applications, the board offers as much as 1.4 GHz of processing power via the G4+ PowerPC (PPC) MPC7448 microprocessor. For legacy applications, the board features pin-to-pin backplane and I/O compatibility with previous Aitech processor boards employing the PPC MPC74xx processor family. The C108 provides numerous I/O capabilities for military embedded applications such as mission management computers, heads-up display controllers, radar and sonar processors, and advanced IED (Improvised Explosive Device) autonomous vehicle protection subsystems, Aitech officials say. The C108 offers I/O interfaces such as a Gigabit Ethernet port, two Fast Ethernet ports, two dual-redundant MIL-STD-1533B interfaces, two USB ports, eight serial ports, and 16 discrete I/O channels. For new programs, Aitech has added an onboard, optically-isolated CAN Bus 2.0B to interface with modern vehicle electronics and major functional subsystems without sacrificing one of the on-board PMC sites as well as to reduce modern subsystems costs.
