Aitech’s U-C8770 SBC, offering AiSecure™️ cybersecurity, is now in full production
Aitech Systems, a leading provider of rugged boards and system level solutions for military, aerospace and space applications, announces the immediate availability of its U-C8770 3U VPX SBC, aligned with The Open Group Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) Technical Standard, enabling users to integrate the new SBC into a wide variety of current and future programs.
The U-C8770 is the first SBC that is both fully aligned with the SOSA Technical Standard and offers advanced data breach and threat protection through Aitech’s proprietary AiSecure cybersecurity infrastructure. It’s also the first SBC in its class to offer extremely large RAM and storage capacities combined with a large onboard FPGA, which helps further optimize SWaP-C and design efficiency.
Judy Cerenzia, VP of Forum Operations at The Open Group, noted, “The achievement of this successful milestone helps build momentum for the upcoming release of the SOSA Technical Standard, scheduled for later this year. The continued efforts of SOSA Consortium member companies, like Aitech, to participate in and celebrate these accomplishments strengthens the foundation on which our open standards ecosystem relies.”
The new 3U VPX SBC supports both PCIe 4x and 40GE data plane options for fast transport of large amounts of uncompressed video and sensor data. It is an adaptation of Aitech’s high performance, rugged C877 SBC, and retains the same key technical features and benefits, making it ideal for I/O-intensive data processing applications in the military and aerospace markets, such as RADAR, signal intelligence (SIGINT), electronic warfare (EW) and sensor signal processing.
Pratish M. Shah, General Manager US for Aitech noted, “As a member of the SOSA Consortium, we’re excited to contribute innovations to this open standards community. In addition to this significant milestone, we’re developing additional boards and systems that align to the SOSA Technical Standard so we can continue to bring more powerful processing and AI supercomputing to military and defense applications.”
