CompactPCI CPU board

10 June 2009 Computer/Embedded Technology

New from Kontron is the CP308, a high-performance 3U CompactPCI CPU board equipped with the Intel Core2 Duo processor, Intel GS45 Graphics and Memory Controller Hub and Intel I/O Controller Hub ICH9M. The board offers a 6 MB L2 cache and a 1066 MHz FSB.

The board offers scalable CPU performance to suit the individual requirements of a wide range of applications that demand energy efficient dual-core performance such as image and video processing, as well as robotic and other realtime applications. Performance ranges from the high-end 2,26 GHz version with 1066 MHz FSB for compute intensive solutions and the low-power 1,86 GHz version with 1066 MHz FSB for energy sensitive applications, to the ultra low-power 1,2 GHz version with 800 MHz FSB for applications where power dissipation is critical.

The CP308 features up to 8 GB of DDR3-SODIMM RAM with 800/1066 MHz memory bus and offers a VGA port, up to seven USB 2.0 ports, two COM ports, two Gigabit Ethernet ports and four SATA interfaces, which are available either on onboard connectors, front I/O or rear I/O connectors. Additionally, one USB port is reserved on a dedicated onboard connector for mounting an appropriate USB NAND Flash module.

To guarantee data and system security, the chipset-integrated trusted platform module (TPM) offers the required encryption, verification and storage capabilities for security-sensitive applications. The 8HP version of the Kontron CP308 extends the interfaces on the front panel by 1x DVI, 1x COM port, 1x PS2, 2x USB 2.0 and adds a reset button. For data storage, the Kontron CP308-HDD offers support for a 2,5” SATA hard drive and a USB NAND Flash module and offers an onboard Compact Flash socket. All three can be used simultaneously.

On the system side, the CP308 provides a PCI 32-bit, 33 MHz CompactPCI interface supporting the Drone Mode feature. When installed in a system master slot, the CompactPCI interface works in transparent mode, whereas the interface is isolated when installed in a peripheral slot. The board supports the Wake-on-LAN (WoL) function and has a 32-bit microcontroller onboard to take over system management tasks.
