F18 - 3U CompactPCI®/Express Core 2 Duo SBC
The F18 offers a 32-bit/33-MHz CompactPCI® bus interface and can also be used without a bus system. In combination with a specific side card it can also perform system-slot functionality in a CompactPCI® Express system.
A total of six PCI Express® lanes for high-speed communication (such as Gigabit Ethernet, graphics) are supported on the F18. 2 x1 PCIe® links are used for the two on-board Ethernet interfaces. 4 x1 or 1 x4 PCIe® links are available on a specific side card.
The DDR2 DRAM is soldered to F18 to guarantee optimum shock and vibration resistance. A robust IDE CompactFlash® device offers nearly unlimited space for user applications. In addition to parallel ATA, three serial ATA lines are available.
The standard I/O available at the front panel of F18 includes graphics on a VGA connector, two PCIe®-driven Gigabit Ethernet interfaces as well as two USB 2.0 ports.
