SC6-TANGO

CompactPCI® Serial CPU Card

Low Power Intel® Atom™ SoC (Apollo Lake APL-I E39xx)


The SC6-TANGO is a low power CompactPCI® Serial CPU board, based on an Intel® Atom® 39xx-series System-on-Chip processor (Apollo Lake APL-I). The SC6-TANGO front panel is provided with two Gigabit Ethernet jacks (option M12-X), two USB 3.0 receptacles, and two DisplayPort connectors. The board is equipped with 8GB directly soldered DDR3L ECC RAM, and a CFast™ card socket as on-board SATA SSD mass storage solution.

Optionally available is an on-board 64GByte e•MMC flash memory chip. Further more, low profile SATA SSD mezzanine modules are available as additional on-board mass storage solution (4HP assembly), and also a multi-function side card (8HP). The SC6-TANGO backplane connectors comply with the CompactPCI® Serial system board specification, suitable for small system expansion via 4 x PCIe® and optionally 2 x GbE.
