Reliable form factor

Continuing the long and reliable service expected from the CompactPCI form factor, Abaco Systems’ CM4R rugged 3U Power Architecture-based single board computer is ideal for military and aerospace applications where size and power consumption are key requirements. The CM4R is capable of operating as either a CompactPCI system controller or peripheral card.

Flexible configuration

The ultra-compact single-slot, all-in-one design offers increased flexibility with multiple processor and RAM configuration options, and an array of on-board peripherals including Fast Ethernet and digital I/O.

Abaco Systems Rugged

Abaco Systems’ CM4R addresses rugged and military applications with conduction cooling that extends the operating temperature range to -40 to +85C. With increased shock and vibration immunity, using stiffener bars, wedge locks, and conformal coating for high humidity environments, the CM4R can be configured to handle the most demanding environments.

Last-Time-Buy Announced July 15, 2015 for the CM4RTM-000 - Transition Module (TM) is a companion board to the CM4R SBC that functions as a distribution point for PMC I/O, serial, Ethernet, and digital I/O signals from the CM4R SBC. The module is available in two configurations: one with a rear panel installed and one without a rear panel. The CM4RTM rear panel contains a RJ-45 Ethernet connector, a DB9 COM1 serial connector and a manual reset switch. The CM4RTM does not include any active components. All signals are routed through the cPCI connector (J2).

Replacement transition module: CPCI3UX606-11 - Module is a customized interface adapter, compatible with 3U CompactPCI backplanes. It fits directly onto the rear P2 position of the backplane and is suitable for interconnection with the PowerPact IMP3A host card.
