CompactPCI® Serial CPU Card • 5th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-5xxx Processor

The SC3-LARGO is a rich featured high performance 4HP/3U CompactPCI® Serial CPU board, equipped with a 5th generation Intel® Core™ mobile processor (Broadwell H quad-core). The SC3-LARGO front panel is provided with two Gigabit Ethernet jacks, two USB 3.0 receptacles, and two mDP connectors, compliant with the DisplayPort 1.2 standard for Multi-Stream-Transport (MST). Local expansion mezzanine cards are available for additional I/O.
The SC3-LARGO is equipped with up to 24GB Low Power RAM with ECC support. Up to 8GB memory-down are provided for rugged applications, and another 16GB maximum are available via the DDR3 ECC SO-DIMM socket. The on-board SATA 6G RAID controller allows for powerful mass storage solutions via the CompactPCI® Serial backplane. Low profile SSD mezzanine modules are available as on-board storage solution, in addition.
The SC3-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, and also a third video output.
Most mezzanine side cards can accommodate in addition a 2.5-inch drive. Typically, the SC3-LARGO and the related side card would come as a readily assembled 8HP unit. As an alternate, MicroSATA or mSATA SSD based low profile mezzanine mass-storage modules are available that fit into the SC3-LARGO 4HP envelope.
While mechanically compliant to CompactPCI® Classic, CompactPCI® Serial (PICMG® CPCIS.0) defines a completely new card slot, based on PCI Express®, SATA, Gigabit Ethernet and USB serial data lines. Up to 6 high-speed backplane connectors P1 – P6 are provided on a system slot controller such as the SC3-LARGO, which can be considered as a root hub with respect to most signal lines. A passive backplane is used for distribution of a defined subset of I/O channels from the system slot to each of up to eight peripheral slots in a CompactPCI® Serial system.
Most CompactPCI® Serial peripheral slot cards require only the backplane connector P1, which comprises PCIe, SATA and USB signals, resulting in a concise and inexpensive peripheral board design. More powerful peripheral cards profit from so called Fat Pipe slots (PCIe x 8). The SC3-LARGO is a native CompactPCI® Serial CPU card, suitable for usage in a pure CPCI Serial environment. Due to its generous backplane capabilities (22 x PCI Express® lanes, 6 x USB, 7 x SATA RAID, 2 x GbE), very powerful industrial systems can be built.
