SC1-ALLEGRO

CompactPCI® Serial CPU Card
Powerful Intel® Core™ i7 (Ivy Bridge) Mobile Processor
Quad-Core and Dual-Core Versions • Up to 16GB DDR3 ECC Memory


The SC1-ALLEGRO is a rich featured high performance 4HP/3U CompactPCI® Serial CPU board, equipped with an Intel® Core™ i7 Ivy Bridge + ECC (dual- or quad-core) mobile processor based on 22nm technology. 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, configured e.g. as extended desktop.


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.

The SC1-ALLEGRO is equipped with a set of local expansion interface connectors, which can be optionally used to attach a mezzanine side board. A variety of expansion cards is available, e.g. providing legacy I/O and additional PCI Express® based I/O controllers such as SATA, USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet, or a third video output. Most mezzanine side cards can accommodate in addition a 2.5-inch drive.


Typically, the SC1-ALLEGRO and the related side card would come as a readily assembled 8HP unit. As an alternate, low profile Flash based mezzanine storage modules are available that fit on the SC1-ALLEGRO while maintaining the 4HP profile. The C42-SATA module e.g. is equipped with a very fast 1.8-inch SATA Solid State Drive (SSD), which is suitable for installation of any popular operating system.

SC1-ALLEGRO • CompactPCI® Serial System Slot Controller

SC1-ALLEGRO • CompactPCI® Serial System Slot Controller


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 high-speed 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, 7 x SATA, 2 x GbE), very powerful industrial systems can be built.
