Low-power CompactPCI system

14 October 2009 Computer/Embedded Technology

Kontron has launched a 3U CompactPCI processor board with Intel Atom processor. The rugged CP305 features EN50155 compliant reliability and extremely low TDP (thermal design power), soldered processor, chipset and RAM for harsh environments.

Equipped with the 1,6 GHz Atom N270 processor, Intel 945GSE plus ICH7M chipset and up to 2 GB of soldered DDR2 memory, the board has a typical power consumption of only 10 Watts. Designed for reliable operation in a temperature range from 0°C to 60°C for convection cooled environments, the new CompactPCI board powers energy-critical and in-vehicle mobile embedded applications in the transportation, automation, energy, military and aerospace markets.

Despite its rugged low-power design, the CP305 offers a comprehensive set of interfaces, including two x Gigabit Ethernet, up to six x USB 2.0, two x SATA interfaces and a CompactFlash socket. The graphics accelerator, integrated into the Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset, provides excellent 2D, 3D and video features for the VGA connector on the front. The 3U CompactPCI CPU board is available as a single slot (4HP) or dual slot (8HP). The 8HP version features additional COM, PS/2, DVI on the front for dual-monitor operation and a 2,5” SATA hard disk interface to mount an HDD or SSD required for harsher environments.

The CP305 features integrated board support packages for Linux, Microsoft Windows XP, XP embedded and VxWorks.
