3U  General Purpose CompactPCI ® CPU Board


Scalable from the ULV Celeron® M processor up to the 2.0GHz Pentium® M, and provided with 2GB dual channel capable DDR2 RAM, the CCD-CALYPSO is a versatile 4HP/3U (single size Eurocard) CompactPCI® CPU board, designed especially for systems which require reasonable performance at low power consumption. The chipset is based on PCI Express technology and has a powerful dual-screen integrated graphics accelerator. The DVI-I video interface allows for simultaneous attachment of both, advanced (digital) and legacy (analog) flat panel displays and CRT monitors (D-SUB connector optionally). The CCD-CALYPSO is equipped with two independent PCIe Gigabit Ethernet controllers for high speed communication. Seven USB 2.0 ports are provided for attachment of peripheral devices. In addition, a CompactFlash mezzanine module (C10-CFA) can accommodate an industrial grade CF card. As an alternate, the 1.8-inch HDD/SSD carrier module C30-PATA is available as on-board mass-storage device (option). A set of local expansion interface connectors may be used to directly attach a mezzanine companion card (aka side board) for I/O, audio- and legacy support, which can carry in addition a 2.5-inch IDE hard disk drive.

As an option, a rear I/O transition module is available to the CCD-CALYPSO, which e.g. provides the Serial ATA connectors (2 x SATA, 1 x eSATA)
