Features Cost and Performance Optimization, Low Power, PICMG 2.16
SAN DIEGO -- January 19, 2004 -- Kontron, a leading embedded computer technology company, today unveiled the CP6000 -- Kontron´s second Intel Pentium M processor-based cPCI 6U board.
Combining the low power/performance features of the Pentium M processor with Intel®´s 855GME and 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub chipset, the CP6000 incorporates components commonly used in mobile applications. This results in lower levels of heat dissipation, which in turn leads to lower system requirements and lower integration costs.
The CP6000 supports the Pentium M processor at 1.1GHz LV, 1.6GHz (performance equal to a 2.4 GHz P4 at about half the power), and higher speeds as they become available. With up to 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports (2x ports at the front and 2x for full PICMG 2.16 support), the CP6000 is tailored to support cost-effective, performance-oriented data and telecommunications applications, media gateways, networking and switching applications, airborne and industrial automation systems and more.
Highly integrated and compact, the CP6000 features a single PCI-X PMC site, onboard 2.5-inch hard disk (optional) and compact flash - all usable at the same time in a single slot. The 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub provides advanced I/O technology including USB 2.0 (40X faster than USB 1.1), Serial ATA150 and onboard 64/66 PCI-X bus. ECC memory is fast and reliable with up to 2GB of PC333 DDR SDRAM via two 200-pin SODIMM sockets. Extended temperature range is an available option.
Intel´s Extreme Graphics 2 technology provides high-resolution graphics and multimedia-quality video, with high performance 2D/3D graphic acceleration and resolution up to 2048 x 1536 x 8bit/60Hz pixel. Additionally the board features Kontron´s proven IPMI firmware solution (PICMG2.9) and various user programmable LEDs on the front panel.
Recently, Kontron announced the CP6011 -- another cPCI 6U CPU with the Intel Pentium M processor, tailored for applications requiring highest performance, flexibility and density.
The CP6000 is available via an early access program with full production starting in Q2 of 2004. Contact your Kontron Sales Engineer at 1-800-523-2320 for OEM pricing.
