Kontron CP3010-SA boosts the performance of the low-power class of CompactPCI® systems without exceeding thermal budgets
Eching/Nuremberg, Germany, November 26, 2013 – At the SPS/IPC/DRIVES trade show Kontron is bringing a new rugged performance-per-watt champion to low-power 3U CompactPCI® systems with the launch of the long-term available CP3010-SA CompactPCI® processor board. The new Kontron CP3010-SA is equipped with latest System-on-Chip (SoC) Intel® Atom™ E3800 processors – formerly codenamed ‘Bay Trail’ – and quadruples the performance in the low-power class of Intel® Atom™ processor based Kontron CompactPCI® systems without increasing the thermal budget. This makes the new board an ideal drop-in replacement even for Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor based CPCI systems. The most impressive feature is the three times higher graphics performance compared to previous Intel® Atom™ processor-based designs coupled with an unbeatable TDP (thermal design power) value. The special heatsink design optimized for convection-cooled environments makes the CP3010-SA a perfect fit for all applications where fans are not desired or not possible. The new EN50155-compliant CompactPCI® processor board features soldered SoC and memory and offers high resistance against shock and vibration, making it a perfect match for harsh environments. Moreover it supports the extended temperature range from -40°C up to +85°C. Typical application areas can be found in industries such as transportation, automation, energy, military or aerospace.
By building applications based on the new Intel® Atom™ E3800 processors-based CompactPCI® board, system engineers and system integrators benefit from a highly flexible, modular system structure based on standard building blocks that can be assembled according to specific performance levels as well as extension requirements. The high standardization level also paves the way for designing systems with a lifecycle beyond that of the components so that ultra long-term availability concepts can easily be achieved with functional and footprint identical components contributing to the high degree of investment security.
The feature set in detail
The EN50155-compliant Kontron CP3010-SA comes with up to quad core 1.9 GHz Intel® Atom™ processor performance and up to 8 GB energy-efficient DDR3L memory. Integrating the new Intel® Gen7 graphics, it delivers excellent 2D, 3D, and video capabilities to up to two independent displays connected via 2x DisplayPort and VGA. Furthermore, Kontron’s latest CompactPCI® processor board boasts a comprehensive set of leading edge interfaces including 3x Gbit Ethernet, 1x USB 3.0, 3x USB 2.0 plus CAN bus and 2x COM ports. For data and software storage it provides 2x SATA interfaces used for an onboard CFAST socket, which can optionally be replaced by up to 64 GB soldered SATA Flash and a HDD/SSD option on the extension. The new 3U CompactPCI® CPU board is now available as single slot (4HP) or dual slot (8HP) version. It comes with comprehensive board support packages for Linux, the complete Microsoft Windows range, VxWorks and QNX.
