Mezzanine I/O Expansion Board •Dual PCI Express Mini Card Sockets & SATA Controller

Available as a mezzanine add-on companion board to the CCG-RUMBA and successor CPU cards, the CCI-RAP is provided with additional PCI Express driven I/O resources, such as PCIe Mini Card sockets, SATA and
FireWire controllers. Mass storage options include SATA, PATA and USB SSD devices. Optionally, a DVI connector allows for dual screen video operating mode. Furthermore the CCI-RAP is equipped with
common legacy I/O ports, e.g. RS-232. A secondary Firmware Hub can be configured as alternate- or backup-BIOS. Another option available is the Trusted Platform Module according to TPM 1.2 for safety critical applications.
The PCI Express Mini Card sockets are especially useful for wireless applications such as WLAN, GSM (HSDPA), WiMAX, and even GPS. Up to three front panel SMA style connectors are available for direct attachment of swivel antennas. Each Mini Card slot is provided with a SIM card holder, as required for GSM based services. The CCI-RAP will be attached on top of the CPU carrier board, and typically shares its front panel with the host carrier (usually 8HP front panel width in total). Interconnection between the CCI-RAP I/O module and the CPU carrier board is achieved by several expansion connectors, which comprise the PCIe (PCI Express x 4), LPC (Low Pin Count) and SDVO interfaces. As an option, the CCI-RAP is available with a mezzanine module (C20-SATA), which accommodates one or two 2.5-inch SATA hard disk drives (RAID option). Alternatively,
either a CompactFlash card adapter, or a 1.8-inch Flash drive (or hard disk) can be attached to the CCI-RAP, as optional mezzanine module. In addition, a USB SSD (Solid State Drive) module can be stuffed. Vision systems and other real time applications can profit from the dual port IEEE 1394a (FireWire) controller.
