Low Power, High Performance, and Impressive I/O Flexibility
BOSTON, September 15, 2003 - Kontron, a leading embedded computer technology company, today unveiled the CP6011 -- an Intel Pentium M processor-based cPCI 6U board.
Combining the low power/performance features of the Pentium M processor with the high I/O bandwidth of the Intel E7501 chipset, the CP6011 is tailored for applications requiring high performance, flexibility and density such as VoIP and signaling as well as medical, military and avionics applications.
The CP6011 supports the Pentium M processor at 1.6GHz (and future speeds) and the low-voltage Pentium M at 1.1GHz. The low power consumption of the Pentium M processor allows for a single-slot (4HP) board, which also is enabled by the use of two SODIMM sockets that can reach 2GB with ECC support.
The CP6011 has two PMC slots, allowing flexibility in the choice of I/Os. The first PMC slot has a PIM interface and a PCI-X interface with speeds up to 64-bit/133MHz and the second PMC slot has a speed of 64-bit/66MHz. The CP6011 also features dual Gigabit Ethernet with PICMG 2.16 support and one Fast Ethernet interface for management purposes or others. Ultra160 SCSI (with PIM support) or additional Gigabit Ethernet ports can be added with Kontron¿s PMC cards.
The CP6011 also provides tremendous bandwidth on the cPCI bus for I/O cards with a PCI-X interface at 64-bit/133MHz. Interface to system management software and management middleware is guaranteed by Kontron¿s proven IPMI firmware solution (PICMG 2.9). The board also features programmable user LEDs on the front panel. VGA performance is provided by ATI Mobility-M graphics chips with 4MB of memory and resolution of up to 1900 x 1200.
The CP6011 will be available through Kontron¿s First On The Street (FOTS) program for early access to Alpha products at the end of Q4 2003. General availability is expected to begin in Q1 2004. Contact your Kontron Sales Engineer at 1-800-523-2320 for OEM pricing.
