Four cPCI Enclosures From 1U to 4U, From Two Slots to Eight
BOSTON, September 15, 2003 - Kontron, a leading embedded computer technology company, today announced the XL-LP Series -- a new line of low-profile CompactPCI chassis including four different enclosures.
The XL-LP10, XL-LP20, XL-LP30 and XL-LP40 (1U, 2U, 3U and 4U chassis, respectively) all support one or more 250W cPCI 3U power supplies for increased reliability and serviceability. The XL-LP Series offers a lower-price-point alternative to the XL-LP42 platform for customers requiring different performance levels and monitoring features. They also provide a range of flexibility, with two slots in the 1U chassis to eight slots in the 4U.
The XL-LP Series includes:
The XL-LP10 -- a 1U chassis with two slots and a PCI bus reaching speeds up to 64-bit/66MHz. It supports one cPCI 3U power supply.
The XL-LP20 -- a 2U chassis with four slots, a 64-bit/66Mhz PCI bus and a H.110 telephony bus (PICMG 2.5) on the three peripheral slots. It supports up to two cPCI 3U power supplies in redundant load-sharing configuration.
The XL-LP30 -- a 3U chassis with six slots, a 64-bit/33MHz PCI bus and five H.110 slots. It supports up to three cPCI 3U power supplies in redundant load-sharing configuration.
The XL-LP40 -- a 4U with eight slots, a 64-bit/33MHz PCI and seven H.110 slots. A second backplane version is available with 2.16 connectivity on all eight slots and no H.110 bus. It supports up to three cPCI 3U power supplies in redundant load-sharing configuration.
All four chassis feature efficient side-to-side cooling, AC or DC input feeds and optional backplane customization. Due to their high scalability, the XL-LP platforms are well suited for a wide range of applications, from data communications and VoIP applications to medical imaging platforms and military communications systems. Kontron´s excellent system integration capabilities add additional value for OEM customers.
XL-LP Series Alpha units are now available with general availability planned for October 2003. Single quantity list pricing for the XL-LP Series, including one power supply, will range from $1,245 to $2,195 (actual pricing will vary).
