CC2-TANGO

CompactPCI  Low-Power CPU
ULV Celeron or LV Pentium III


Alternatively equipped with the Intel® series of ULV Celeron® or LV Pentium® III processors, the CC2-TANGO is a versatile 4HP/3U (single size Eurocard) CompactPCI® CPU board, designed especially for systems which require very low power consumption.

Available either with the 800/933MHz Low Voltage Pentium III or the 400/650MHz Ultra Low Voltage Celeron processor and up to 512MB RAM, the CC2-TANGO covers a wide range of applications, including PXI systems.



The DVI-I video interface allows for attachment of both, advanced (digital) and legacy (analog) flat panel displays and CRT monitors (D-SUB connector optionally). The CC2-TANGO is provided with a 100Mbps Ethernet controller. The on-board CompactFlash socket allows for utilization of an ATA Flash card or IBM Microdrive®.

A local expansion interface connector may be used to directly attach a companion I/O board, which can carry also a hard disk drive. As an option, rear I/O across the J2/P2 connector is available.

Available as a companion board to the CC2-TANGO, the CC6-ACID is provided with several legacy I/O ports. This module can be mounted either to the bottom side or on top of the CC2-TANGO and communicates across the LPC (Low Pin Count) interface.

The CC6-ACID will be required only if the classical interfaces, e.g. serial and parallel port, remain in use in a given application.



As an option, the CC6-ACID can be delivered with an on-board 2.5-" hard disk drive, resulting in a very compact system. The connectors COM1/2, LPT, mouse and keyboard are situated at the front panel (4HP and 8HP versions available), while an external floppy disk drive can be attached via the on-board pin header.

The CC0-CHILLOUT is similar to the CC6-ACID, but destined for use together with a rear I/O transition module (CCZ-RIO).

Available as an option, the CC2-TANGO can be delivered for rear I/O utilization. Several I/O ports can be routed across the J2 connector. Rear I/O requires that a suitable J2 backplane is present in your CompactPCI system. By default, the CC2-TANGO is equipped with line terminating resistors for a common 64-bit CPCI J2 backplane.


The CCY-RIO transition module provides a 4HP back panel with connectors for PS/2 style keyboard and mouse, a serial RS-232E COM port, and an USB receptacle. In addition, optional on-board headers are stuffed on the CCY-RIO for attachment of IDE/ATA devices (hard disks, DVD ROM drives).
