CM60 Computer Module

The CM60 is a core module in "C" stations. The powerful processor, along with the highly integrated communication busses, makes this processor module a key building block in a kk-electronic "C" station. CM60 can either be top level processor module, controlling and servicing the communication and instrumentation network, or it can be set as slave in an existing network, where local processor power or higher local sub-network update frequencies are needed. Working memory is, for stability and safety purposes, subject to continuous ECC control. ECC enables automatic correction of any single bit error and detection of multiple bit errors.
