CHATSWORTH, Calif., 29 May 2007. Aitech Defense Systems in Chatsworth, Calif., is offering a 6U VME 64x single-board computer with a large quantity of semiconductor Flash-based mass memory coupled with a dual PowerPC with low power consumption, memory and I/O density for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) applications.

The combined C102 SBC processor and M222 Flash memory PMC help solve raw processing power and data throughput problems as well as provide lower power dissipation and large mission data mass storage.

Based on Freescale's 7448 RISC microprocessors, the boards are for processing sensor and video feeds, as well as to control engines and maneuvering actuators. The embedded computers have enough memory to locally and reliably store mission-critical variables, processed and compressed mission sensor data, tactical area moving maps and mission histories.

The subsystem also incorporates internal PCI bus isolation as well as independent and innovative bus distribution techniques.

The C102 use an asymmetrical distributed processing memory architecture; each of the processing nodes functions as a self-contained subsystem complete with local memory resources and basic I/O interfaces, eliminating instruction and data memory bottlenecks.

The C102/M222 combination is available in commercial temp range air- and rugged or military conduction-cooled models, with operation from -55 to 85 degrees Celsius per IEEE 1101.2 and ANSI/VITA 1-1994 specifications.
