Kontron PCI-759 brings Intel Core 2 Duo processor  to PICMG 1.0 systems

Price-optimized multi-core performance

Eching/Nuremberg, Germany, February 26, 2008 ¡V Today, at Embedded Word (Hall 12 / Booth 404), Kontron introduced the new Kontron PCI-759 PICMG 1.0 slot-CPU board with Intel multi-core performance. The long time available Kontron PCI-759 offers outstanding processor performance at an excellent price/performance ratio for industrial grade embedded applications such as process control, test & measurement and vision systems.

The new Kontron PCI-759 is the ideal choice for PCI and/or ISA based, cost-sensitive embedded applications that rely on multiple application specific I/O cards and require high data processing performance without the need for high-speed PCI Express features. Based on the Intel Core 2 Duo processor up to the E6400 (2 x 2.16 GHz) and a TDP of only 65Watts, applications benefit from double the performance with power consumption similar to a Pentium-4. Since the Kontron PCI-759 conforms fully to the PICMG 1.0 specification, upgrading existing systems is quick and easy. The excellent price/performance ratio also makes the Kontron PCI-759 the perfect fit for cost-sensitive applications.

Designed around the Intel 945G chipset with 1066 MHz front side bus and Intel ICH7 I/O controller hub, the Kontron PCI-759 slot-CPU board offers scalable processor performance based on the Intel LGA7555 socket up to the E6400 (2 x 2.16 GHz) Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Support for up to 4 GB of DDR2 dual channel RAM boosts performance even further. Application flexibility is provided by a full range of I/O interfaces: 4 x 3Gb/s SATA II for fast hard drive access, 2 x GbE (internally connected via PCI Express x1 to the southbridge for optimal data throughput), 7 x USB 2.0, one parallel and two serial interfaces. Additional interfaces can be implemented via the mini-PCI Type IIIA connector. Kontron offers additional assemblies for LAN, WLAN and SCSI. The integrated Intel GMA 950 Graphics Media Accelerator supports VGA resolutions up to 2048x1536. There is also 24-bit LCDS via DVO that supports resolutions up to 1600x1200. Furthermore, an integrated onboard socket for a Compact Flash module makes it possible to build maintenance-free systems without rotating non-volatile memory.

The Kontron PCI-759 PICMG 1.0 board is available now with Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Linux software packages. Additional operating systems are possible on a project basis.

For fastest time-to-prototype multiple bundles with validated passive backplanes, pre-validated IO-boards and proven housings including RAID storage systems and cooling concept are available upon request.
