Mezzanine I/O Expansion Board • Multifunction Side Board

Available as a mezzanine add-on expansion board (aka side board) to the CCM-BOOGIE and successor CompactPCI® CPU cards, the CCO-CONCERT provides a number of frequently required I/O functions. In addition, the user can choose between several SATA and USB based mass storage options. The on-board HD Audio codec is useful e.g. for passenger information systems. Analog inputs and outputs are available from 3.5mm stereo jacks situated in the front panel, each individually configurable by driver software as microphone in, line in, headphones out or line out. As an option, a D-SUB connector provides also S/PDIF digital audio along with additional analog lines.
The CCO-CONCERT can be equipped with up to three RAID0/1 capable PCIe dual channel SATA controllers, useful for attachment of mass-storage devices, either on-board mounted, or externally (by cable or via rear I/O).
For dual screen applications (in addition to the primary DVI connector on the CPU carrier board), the CCO-CONCERT can be equipped with either a SDVO to PanelLink transmitter (for digital video output), or a SDVO to VGA DAC
(for analog video output), with both signal types available on the secondary front panel DVI connector. Furthermore the CCO-CONCERT is equipped with a SIO, which provides legacy I/O ports, such as serial (UART) and PS/2 keyboard/mouse interfaces. Two RS-232E COM port connectors are mounted in the front panel. 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 CCO-CONCERT 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 CCO-CONCERT side board and the CPU carrier card is achieved by up to four expansion connectors, which comprise the PCIe (PCI Express x 4), SDVO (serial digital video), SATA/USB and LPC (Low Pin Count legacy) interfaces. As a popular mass storage solution, the CCO-CONCERT is available with an 2.5-inch on-board SATA SSD (solid state drive) or HDD (hard disk). Another mass storage option is the mezzanine
module C20-SATA, which accommodates one or two 2.5-inch SATA drives (RAID0/1 option). Alternatively, the C42-SATA mezzanine module accommodates a 1.8-inch SSD, as well rugged as affordable. The C40-SCFA mezzanine module provides a CompactFlash socket, which is controlled by a SATA to PATA bridge. Optionally, up to three low profile USB Flash drive modules (2.00mm pitch connector) can be accommodated, 2 x top and 1 x bottom
mount. USB SSD modules are available for the industrial temperature range from several vendors. For even more front panel I/O, the C32-FIO mezzanine board can be mounted on top of the CCO-CONCERT, offering another two
RS-232 COM ports, 2 x USB, and a Mini-DIN connector with KB/MS. This solution would result in a 12HP front panel. The CCO-CONCERT can be optionally provided with J1/J2 rear I/O connectors for custom specific system solutions.
