VMEbus SBC with 2nd Generation Intel® Core i7™

The CPU-71-16 is a high performance Single Board Computer (SBC) based on
the VMEbus 6U form factor. Offered in both convection cooled and ruggedized
conduction cooled variants, the CPU-71-16 will meet the needs of commercial
and military applications requiring maximum processing power, low power
consumption, and fully integrated single board computing.

At the heart of the CPU-71-16 is an Intel® 2nd Generation Core™ i7 ULV
Sandy Bridge Processor and QM67 Cougar Point Platform Controller Hub
(PCH). These two devices form the central processing backbone of the design.
With a dual-channel memory controller integrated in the processor, the CPU-
71-16 supports up to 8 GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM running at 1333 MHz. The
CPU-71-16 routes x8 gen 2 PCIe to an on-board XMC site.
One of the QM67 PCH’s x1 gen 2 PCIe is routed to a PCIe to PCI bridge. One
(PLX 8112) supports PCI bus for the two on-board PMC site and the Universe
IID VMEbus interface. Another x1 PCIe bus is routed to an Intel 82579
10/100/1000BaseT ethernet with front panel access.
A x4 PCIe interface is routed from the QM67 to an 82571EB dual 10/100/1000
BaseT, routed either to P0 in compliance with VITA 31.1 ethernet backplane
network or to P2.
Supports on board CFast (SATA) card for bootable storage.
Extended temperature and conduction cooled versions are available

VME Compatible – Tundra Universe IID PCI-VMEbus interface
provides VME64 compatibility and backward compatibility with
older VME backplanes.

High Perfomance and Low Power – Dual core processing
at less than 25W typical power consumption enables cool
operation at extended temperature.

Gigabit Ethernet – Three Ethernet ports are provided, one on the front and two on the rear, VITA 31.1 compatible.

MIL-STD Versions – The CPU-71-16 is offered in versions that
support wedge locks for high shock and vibration immunity,
and conduction-cooling. Conformal coating is available for all
