CompactPCI processor board

18 August 2010 Computer/Embedded Technology

New from Kontron is the 6U CompactPCI processor board CP6002 based on the latest Intel Core i7 mobile processor technology.

It is designed to bring leading-edge performance with low power consumption and low heat dissipation to a broad range of applications in the communications, military, aerospace, medical, industrial and monitoring systems markets.

With the 2,53 GHz Core i7-610E and the LV 2,0 GHz Core i7-620LE, the CP6002 not only speeds up multiprocessing tasks via hyper-threading technology (HTT), but also processes single-threaded tasks quickly thanks to Intel Turbo Boost technology. This allows for a clock speed of up to 3,33 GHz without exceeding the defined thermal design power (TDP) and without the need to oversize the entire system for peak loads. On the memory side, up to 8 GB of soldered DDR3 1066 MHz ECC memory ensures data accuracy for safety-critical applications like radar, sonar or imaging systems. In addition to the CompactFlash socket for rugged, industrial grade Flash modules, up to 32 GB of NAND Flash (64 GB upon availability) is possible via SATA interface, which is able to hold complete operating systems or application code, increasing overall system speed and availability.

For application flexibility, the processor board comes with six Serial ATA interfaces with RAID support, one front and two rear high-resolution graphics interfaces (VGA/DP/HDMI) and up to two PMC/XMC slots, enabling compact and cost-efficient system designs by omitting previously required add-ons such as PMC carriers, graphics and/or RAID CPCI-boards. In addition, six USB 2.0 ports are available on the board, two on front I/O and four on rear I/O. Further interfaces include two COM ports, one RS232 port implemented as an RJ45 connector on the front panel and routed to rear I/O, as well as one RS422 port on the rear I/O.

The CP6002 is offered in three versions, with either one (CP6002-R1) or two XMCs/PMCs slots (CP6002-R1-MC and CP6002-R2-MC). The CP6002-R1 can further accommodate an onboard 2,5” SATA HDD/SSD and provides two Gigabit Ethernet ports, one VGA (CRT) port, one COM port and two USB ports on the front panel. The CP6002-R1-MC and CP6002-R2-MC provide one Gigabit Ethernet port, one DisplayPort (alternatively RS232) and two USB ports on the front panel.

The CP6002-R1 and CP6002-R1-MC are designed for standard application environments in air-cooled environments, whereas the ruggedised CP6002-R2-MC is designed for high shock and vibration environments (as defined in VITA 47 EAC3/EAC6), an extended operating temperature range (-40°C to +70°C), and provides support for two conduction-cooled XMCs/PMCs. The R3 version (available on project request) is fully conduction cooled and meets VITA 47’s ECC4 requirements.

The board supports a configurable 64-bit/66 MHz PCI or PCI-X, hot swap CompactPCI interface. When installed in the system slot, the interface is enabled, and when installed in a peripheral slot, the board is isolated from the CompactPCI bus. Safety and security features via an optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2, two redundant firmware hubs (failover) and Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) are supported as well.

The CP6002 runs with VxWorks 6.8, Linux (RedHat), Microsoft Windows 7, Windows XP, XP embedded or Windows Server 2003 or 2008. Support packages support all onboard hardware devices, and also specific features like hot swap ability, IPMI, power and thermal management, enabling integration among scalable multiCPU systems.
