CompactPCI  Celeron/Pentium-III CPU
Compact Flash, USB, Ethernet and DVI-I Graphics On-Board

Alternatively equipped with an Intel Celeron®, Pentium-III® or VIA Cyrix® III processor, the CC5-RAVE is a powerful 3U (single size Eurocard) CPU board, well suited for any CompactPCI® system.

The board is provided with the chip set 810(E) which contains an embedded graphics controller. The DVI-I interface allows for attachment of both advanced and legacy flat panel displays and CRT monitors. The on-board USB-port is a universal interface to a variety of peripheral devices such as keyboard, mouse, printer, modem or video camera. For high speed networking, the CC5-RAVE is provided with a 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet twisted pair jack. All connectors mentioned above are easily accessible from the cards front panel.

As a mass storage interface the CC5-RAVE provides for an Ultra ATA/66 connector, suitable for any IDE hard disk and CD-ROM. A receptacle for CompactFlash cards enables the use of silicon disks. The main memory is a SO-DIMM 144 form factor module. The jumperless board can be used with a front-side bus clock speed of up to 100(133)MHz.

Equipped with a PCI-bridge chip, the CC5-RAVE offers a full CPCI interface for reliable system expansion. Especially designed for embedded systems applications, the General Software BIOS is maintained by EKF. This ensures custom specific enhancements are possible at any time.

CC5-RAVE - 3U Pentium III CPU

Available as a companion board to the CC5-RAVE, the CC6-ACID is provided with all PC legacy I/O ports. This module fits on either side of the CC5, top (CC6-1 and CC6-3) or bottom (CC6-3 only), utilizing the LPC Low Pin Count interface. The card will be required only if the classical interfaces, e.g. serial and parallel port remain in use in a given environment.

The CC6-ACID can be delivered with an on-board 2.5" hard disk, resulting in a very compact system. The connectors LPT (CC6-1 only), COM1/2, mouse and keyboard are situated at the front panel, while a floppy disk drive can be attached via the on-board pin header. While the CC6-1 requires 8HP, the CC6- 3 is equipped with a 4HP front panel.
