C873 | 3U VPX SBC

4th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor

Aitech’s C873 is a high-performance 3U VPX SBC for embedded and harsh environment applications. The heart of the C873 is Intel’s Haswell platform, featuring a 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core processor with integrated HD Graphics 4600, coupled with a companion Lynx Point QM87 I/O Platform Controller Hub (PCH).

The single-slot SBC operates at 2.4 GHz. The Core i7 processor includes Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 that enables temporary operation at higher frequencies for enhanced performance.  It also features an integrated HD Graphics 4600 core for 2D/3D graphics and video processing and provides RGBHV and HDMI/DVI outputs.
