CompactPCI® PlusIO CPU Card • 5th Generation Intel® Core™ Mobile Processor (Broadwell) Quad-Core • Up to 24GB DDR3L ECC Memory

The PC5-LARGO is a rich featured high performance 4HP/3U CompactPCI® PlusIO CPU board, equipped with a 5th Generation Intel® Core™ mobile processor (Broadwell quad-core). The PC5-LARGO front panel is provided with two Gigabit Ethernet jacks, two USB 3.0 receptacles, and two Mini DisplayPort connectors (DisplayPort 1.2 MST, 4k UHD).
Local expansion mezzanine boards (side cards) are available for additional front panel and/or rear I/O, resulting in an 8HP front panel width assembly unit.
The PC5-LARGO is equipped with up to 24GB DDR3L ECC RAM. 8GB memory-down are provided for rugged applications, and another 16GB are available via the SO-DIMM socket. Low profile SSD mezzanine modules are available as on-board mass storage solution. The PC5-LARGO backplane connectors comply with the PICMG® CompactPCI® PlusIO system slot specification, suitable for a rear I/O module or hybrid CompactPCI® Serial system via J2. Across J1, the PC5-LARGO is backwards compatible to classic CompactPCI® systems. The PC5-LARGO is equipped with a set of local expansion interface connectors, which can be optionally used to attach a mezzanine side board. A variety of expansion cards is available, e.g. providing legacy I/O and additional PCI Express® based I/O controllers such as SATA, USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet, or a third video output. Most mezzanine side cards can accommodate in addition a 2.5-inch drive.
Typically, the PC5-LARGO and the related side card would come as a readily assembled 8HP unit. As an alternate, low profile Flash based mezzanine storage modules are available that fit on the PC5-LARGO while maintaining the 4HP profile. The C48-M2 module e.g. is equipped with two M.2 (up to 2280 size) SATA Solid State Drives (SSD), suitable for installation of any popular operating system.
