SBS Technologies, represented by Metromatics , has introduced the C5C 6U CompactPCI Single Board Computer with dual Intel Pentium III processors capable of meeting processing demands for conduction cooled boards deployed in harsh environments.
The dual low voltage Intel Pentium III 512K 800 MHz or 933 MHz processors enhance application performance plus reduce power consumption to enable on board fanless cooling.
Two independent PCI buses decouple slow and fast on-board peripheral functions; a high speed 64-bit/66 MHz bus facilitates high bandwidth data intensive transactions, while the 32-bit/33 MHz bus can be used for slower peripherals. The C5C can function as a system or non-system slot controller.
Other C5C features include a SoundBlaster compatible audio interface, an Ultra 160 SCSI interface, primary and secondary IDE on the CompactPCI backplane, full hot swap support, 69030 Dual HiQ Video Accelerator supporting 1200 x 1600 maximum screen resolution compatible with SVGA and VGA Video Modes and up to 3 GB SDRAM. Dual Gigabit Ethernet interfaces supporting PICMG 2.16 are optional.
Conduction Cooled C5Cs support operating temperatures from -40° to +85°C. A standard convection-cooled version is available with an operating temperature range of 0° to +55°C. The C5C is compatible with PC99 Design Guide Compliant Software. SBS offers driver-level support for a number of common operating systems.
