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.

TM870 | CM870

Optional accessories for the C873 include the TM870 Rear Transition Module (RTM) and the CM870 3U VPX PMC/XMC Carrier.
For system integration and other development purposes, the TM870 RTM provides convenient access via standard connectors to the C873 I/O interfaces and all PMC/XMC I/O. The RTM supports both the air-cooled and conduction-cooled versions of the C873 when mounted in a commercial air-cooled chassis.

The CM870 is a 3U VPX PMC/XMC carrier on which any industry standard PMC/XMC can be mounted. Using one or more CM870s, system functionality can be significantly expanded by enabling the C873 to control additional PMCs/XMCs over the VPX backplane.
