(Serial) Boards - 3U Processors

The SC2-PRESTO is a rich featured high performance 4HP/3U CompactPCI® Serial CPU board, equipped with a 4th generation Intel® Core mobile processor (Haswell dual- or quad-core). The SC2-PRESTO 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 SC2-PRESTO is equipped with up to 16GB Low Power RAM with ECC support. 8GB memory-down are provided for rugged applications, and another 8GB 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 SC2-PRESTO 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 SC2-PRESTO 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 SC2-PRESTO 4HP envelope.
