CompactPCI® Serial CPU Card • Intel® XEON® W 11xxx (Tiger Lake)

The SC9-TOCCATA is a rich featured high performance 4HP/3U CompactPCI® Serial CPU board, equipped with an Intel® 11th Generation XEON® Processor (Tiger Lake H45 platform) for demanding industrial applications.

The SC9-TOCCATA front panel is provided with three 2.5Gbps Ethernet jacks for networking (2 x TCC/TSN capable) and three 10Gbps USB Type-C receptacles (DisplayPort Alternate Mode enabled) for versatile device and display attachment.

On-board mass-storage solutions are based on low profile mezzanine expansion cards, which accommodate up to two M.2 style SSD modules. One of the M.2 sockets is suitable for a fast NVMe (PCI Express® Gen4 x 4) module.

The SC9-TOCCATA is equipped with up to 64GB DDR4 ECC RAM. Up to 32GB memory-down are provided for rugged applications, and another 32GB are available via the DDR4 ECC SODIMM socket.

The 11th Generation XEON® and Core™ processors are accompanied by the RM590E mobile PCH, for a maximum of high speed I/O resources (e.g. PCI Express®, SATA, USB). Altogether with the processor, 25 PCIe® lanes in total are provided for backplane use, and another 8 lanes for local mezzanine expansion up to PCIe® Gen4 speed.

As an option, up to eight additional Gigabit Ethernet ports (either switch or NICs) are available via the backplane connector P6 by means of a mezzanine module.

    2024-04-25: BIOS release, Build #072 production

    – Fixed a bug when BIOS detects a P2P bridge with HotPlug capability
    EKF boards SCX-PCIE (Secondary backplane controller) and SE4-TEMPO (Quad M.2 PCIe/NVMe)
    are equipped with such PCI bridges, i.e. these boards are supported now.

    – Added support to enable UEFI Network Stack
    Setup (F2): Advanced -> Network Configuration -> UEFI Network Stack
    Available options: Disabled (Default), Enabled
    If set to Enabled, UEFI PXE boot over IPv4 or over IPv6 network is supported.

    – Added support for PXE boot (booting an OS from network)
    Setup [F2]: Advanced -> Network Configuration -> EFI Network Boot
    Available options: Intel Ethernet, Disabled (Default)
    Supported Ethernet controllers are of type Intel i225 and i226.

    – Extended LED GP flashes for debug purposes


    2023-10-30: First BIOS production release, Build #070
