Single Board Computer


The TRC2005 is a 2U rackmount computer system with a depth dimension of 18.0″ (45.7cm).  This lightweight aluminum chassis weighs 23.8 lbs. (10.81 Kg.) and features a 2U butterfly backplane and a choice of PICMG 1.3 system host board.

This rackmount computer supports long-life embedded SHB options such as the Trenton’s BXT7059, TSB7053 and JXT6966 system host boards.  The TSB7053 is a single processor SHB featuring the Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v2 series processors or the Intel® Core™ i7-3770.  The BXT7059 option is a dual-processor SHB featuring the multi-core Intel® Xeon® E5-2400 v2 Series processors.  Both SHB options offer long-life embedded components; including processors, to provide a 7+ year product availability timeline.

Standard 2U PICMG 1.3 butterfly backplane options; such as our latest BPC8219 PCI Express Backplane, enable support for up to three x16 PCIe video cards used to drive compact and mid-size video display wall applications.  A fourth PCIe option card may also be supported in some applications.  Other backplane options are available in the TRC2005 to provide support for other combinations of PCI Express, PCI-X and PCI option cards.

The TRC2005 provides multiple front access storage drives and a slim-line optical media bay.  The system also features a front panel USB port, various rear panel I/O ports including Ethernet, additional USB ports, RS-232 serial ports, PS/2 ports and PCIe, PCI-X and PCI option card slots.

Option Card Slot Details

Support for PCI Express 2.0 or 1.1 cards is available with the TRC2005 system.  The number and PCIe interface link type supported is a function of the specific SHB and backplane combination specified.

Likewise, there are SHB and backplane combinations available with the TRC2005 to meet a variety of PCI-X and PCI option card support requirements. For example, the BPC8219 PCI Express Backplane is a butterfly backplane ideal for 2U rackmount computer system configurations and supports the following option card slots:

PCI Express Slots – Side A
One, x4 PCIe slot (x16 mechanical) driven directly from SBC

PCI Express Slots – Side B
