PICMG1.0 systems benefit from multicore performance

11 June 2008 Computer/Embedded Technology

Kontron has introduced its new PCI-759 PICMG 1.0 slot-CPU board with Intel multicore performance.

The board offers outstanding processor performance for industrial grade embedded applications such as process control, test and measurement and vision systems.

The PCI-759 is a suitable choice for PCI and/or ISA based, cost-sensitive embedded applications that rely on multiple application specific I/O cards and require high data processing performance without the need for high-speed PCI Express features. Based on the Intel Core 2 Duo processor up to the E6400 (two x 2,16 GHz) and a TDP of only 65 Watts, applications benefit from double the performance with power consumption similar to a Pentium 4. The board also supports up to 4 GB of DDR2 dual channel RAM.

Application flexibility is provided by a full range of I/O interfaces: four x 3 Gbps SATA II for fast hard drive access, two x GbE (internally connected via PCI Express x1 to the southbridge for optimal data throughput), seven x USB 2.0, one parallel and two serial interfaces. Additional interfaces can be implemented via the mini-PCI Type IIIA connector. Kontron offers additional assemblies for LAN, WLAN and SCSI. The integrated Intel GMA 950 Graphics Media Accelerator supports VGA resolutions up to 2048x1536. There is also 24-bit LCDS via DVO that supports resolutions up to 1600x1200. Furthermore, an integrated onboard socket for a Compact Flash module makes it possible to build maintenance-free systems without rotating non-volatile memory.
