The SC1-ALLEGRO is a rich featured high performance 4HP/3U system controller, equipped with a 3rd generation Intel® Core™mobile processor (i7 Ivy Bridge + ECC).
The SC1-ALLEGRO front panel is provided with two Gigabit Ethernet jacks, two USB 3.0 receptacles, and two Mini-DisplayPort connectors for attachment of high resolution digital displays.
The SC1- ALLEGRO is equipped with up to 16GB RAM with ECC support. 8GB memory-down are provided for rugged applications, and another 8GB are available via the DDR3 ECC SO-DIMM socket.
As an option, a low profile mezzanine module with dual mSATA SSDs may serve as a high-speed RAID mass storage solution.
The SC1-ALLEGRO backplane connectors comply with the PICMG® CompactPCI® Serial system slot specification.
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 highspeed backplane connectors P1 - P6 are provided on a system slot controller such as the SC1-ALLEGRO, 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 SC1-ALLEGRO is a native CompactPCI® Serial CPU card, suitable for usage in a pure CPCI Serial environment.
Due to its generous backplane capabilities (20 x PCI Express® lanes, 6 x USB, 6 x SATA RAID, 2 x GbE), very powerful industrial systems can be built.
