The C2KA is a rugged PICMG 2.16 compliant 6U compactPCI single board computer featuring increased processor speeds, bus speeds and memory capacities making it an excellent choice for advanced defense, aerospace,
and homeland security applications.
The C2KA hosts the MPC7448 or the MPC7447A PowerPC G4 processor from Freescale Semiconductor with core processor speeds up to 1.4 GHz and 1 MB of on-board L2 cache. The processor is supported with a 167 MHz MPX System Bus.
The C2KA integrates the Marvell® MV64460 System Controller (Discovery III) bridge chip, which includes a high speed DDR333 SDRAM controller with 167 MHz interface that service memory densities of up to 1 GB. It also provides two PCI interfaces: one 64-bit 33/66 MHz PCI bus interface shared with on-board devices and PMC1, and one 64-bit 33/66 MHz PCI/33/66/133 MHz PCI-X Bus interface dedicated to PMC0.
The C2KA features multiple I/O, including three Gigabit Ethernet ports, four RS-232/RS-422 ports, four RS-422/485 ports, two 1.5 Gbps SATA ports, and three high-speed USB 2.0 ports. The convection model also provides one
high-speed USB 2.0 port at the front panel.
The C2KA includes 16 programmable GPIO ports with independent interrupts. Each port can be programmed for direction, input polarity, output type, interrupt type (level or edge) and interrupt mask.
The C2KA hosts two 64-bit IEEE1386.1 PMC sites for expanding I/O capability.
For increased flexibility, the PLX PCI 6254 cPCI backplane bridge allows the C2KA to operate as a system controller or peripheral processor card.
The C2K is available in five ruggedization levels.
