The AT-VME-SBC-Corei7 board has a Computer On Module COMExpress plugged in to it. COMExpress is based on one of the ultra high performance, high-integration Intel Corei7 processor, and gives designers the choice of a complete, ruggedized systems requiring high bandwidth processing, based on the COMExpress form factor. Core i7 offers integrated graphics and memory controller and dual core processing up to 2 GHz. The module plugs into the card, which has connectors and additional circuitry to meet your application requirements.

The Computer On Module incorporates a 4 GB of SDRAM with ECC Protection, 32 MB NOR Flash memory, 16 GB of NAND Flash, Two Gigabit Ethernet ports, four USB ports, four SATA ports and One High Definition Audio port.

The AT-VME-SBC-Corei7 is equipped with On-board mezzanine expansion sites-one optional PCI 32-bit/66MHz PMC site or PCIe x4 XMC site, Three digital display interfaces, a number of user defined GPIO�s, two dual redundant 1553B channels and eight transmit and eight receive ARINC429 Channels. The AT-VME-SBC-Corei7 has implemented all its Discrete IO logic in the FPGA. All discrete inputs and outputs are accessed through registers implemented inside FPGA.

The card is particularly well suited to embedded applications and meets all the requirements such as power consumption, temperature range, quality, and reliability demands of embedded system applications. The card uses +5V, +3.3V and +12V from the Back Plane as primary supply voltages. All the internal Voltages required by FPGAs and various other peripherals are derived using on board regulators and DC-DC Converters.

The board is available in either Air-cooled or Conduction-cooled versions. Operating system support for VxWorks, Linux are available.


The board comes with up to 4 GB of DDR3 SDRAM. It is equipped with an Error Checking and Correction (ECC) mechanism providing a high degree of protection against errors. It is capable of detecting and correcting single errors while alerting when multiple errors arise. The ECC mechanism enhances the system reliability to a great extent.

PCI Local Bus

The SBC comes with separate PCI bus and is fully compliant to PCI Specs-Rev 2.2. PCI bus operates at 32-bit/33MHz bus providing a high-speed backbone for the local interconnects of on-board devices. PCI bus operates at 64-bit/66 MHz and is routed to one IEEE standard PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) site.

VME Interface

The SBC includes the Tundra chip (Tsi148) PCI-VME bridge controller allowing the interface between the local PCI bus and the VME backplane. It provides a high performance VME64x bus interface. The VME interface provides full master and slave capabilities.

PMC Interface

Mounting a PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) further enhances the capabilities of the SBC. The PMC expansion slot is compliant to IEEE 1386/1386.1-2001. The PCI bus running at 64-bit/66 MHz is connected to the PMC slot.

XMC Interface

X4 lane PCI express interface at 2.5 Gbps data rate. Single XMC site.

I/O Interfaces
Ethernet Interface

The AT-VME-SBC provides two 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet ports.


The SBC includes four USB Rev 2.0 ports providing high-speed, full-speed and low-speed signaling.
