The CPU-161-17 Development Kit allows a quick development and prototyping of embedded applications on a pre-validated platform which brings out a rich set of the module functionalities. The kit targets all aspects of an embedded application from hardware interfacing to development of on-board software.
Compliant with PICMG COM Express R2.1, Type 6, the CPU-161-17 is a 95x95mm (Compact) form factor module based on the 6th Generation Intel Core processor family (i7, i5, i3 and Celeron), with two cores and up to 16GB SO-DIMM RAM.
Other features include high speed interfaces: one Gbit Ethernet, three SATA 3.0 with RAID support, four USB 3.0 and eight USB 2.0, eight PCIe Gen 3 lanes, and three independent video ports (LVDS, VGA and DDI supporting up to 4096x2304@60Hz).
The CPU-161-17 is a solid building block for projects where reliability in harsh conditions is mandatory, and long term availability is a must, thanks to an operating temperature of - 40 to +85°C, support for RAID 0/1/5, optional conformal coating and long term support/lifecycle programs.
