6U and 3U Single Slot Processors Offer Increased Computing Power
SAN DIEGO, CA - June 20, 2004- Kontron, a market leader in embedded computer technology, today announced that three of its popular cPCI single slot processor boards, the CP6000 and CP6011 (6U) and the CP306 (3U) now are equipped with the Intel® Pentium® M processor 745 running at 1.8GHz, offering higher performance and lower power. In addition to operating at higher clock speed, the newest Intel Pentium M processor is equipped with 2 MB of L2 cache, double that of previous models. The higher clock rate and increased memory cache combine to significantly increase processing performance.
The 6U CP6000, with up to 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, the Intel® 855GME GMCH and Intel® 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub, is tailored to support cost-effective, performance-oriented data and telecommunications applications, airborne and industrial automation systems and more.
The CP6011, featuring Dual PMC sites and the high I/O bandwidth of the Intel® E7501 chipset, is tailored for network infrastructure applications such as VoIP and signaling as well as applications requiring high performance on the PMC, wirespeed Gigabit Ethernet, flexibility and density.
The compact and rugged 3U CP306 is ideal for applications such as robotics and data acquisition systems. Use of the Intel Pentium M processor in all three allows for passive cooling.
"With the Intel® Pentium® M processor 745, the Kontron cPCI boards can offer a higher performance level and optimized power consumption for embedded computing," said Ton Steenman, General Manager, Embedded Intel Architecture Division, Intel Corporation. "Coupled with the I/O bandwidth that the Intel® E7501 chipset provides, this processor is the ideal solution for low power/high performance applications."
"We are excited to announce the support for the newest Intel® Pentium® M processor," said Thomas Sparrvik, President & CEO of Kontron America. "The Intel Pentium M processor brings our cPCI modular communications platform building blocks to new levels of performance that can satisfy the demanding needs of the embedded and communications market segments."
