Teknor targets High End Server Market with Extreme Density CompactPCI SBC

Teknor´s cPCI-DMXP64GX double density design offers a hot-swappable 4HP form factor for unsurpassed scalable multi-processing

Networld+Interop, Las Vegas, NV, May 8, 2001 - Teknor Applicom Inc., a Kontron company, today launched the cPCI-DMXP64GX, its next generation CompactPCI peripheral processor that rounds out Teknor´s communications class of extreme density board level solutions. Targeted at high end server applications within Internet and telecommunications server networks, the cPCI-DMXP64GX is the first in the SBC market to integrate an advanced feature-set with 1.5 GB of memory and dual Pentium III - Low Power processors in a single slot 4HP form factor.

Hot swappable and exceptionally reliable, the cPCI-DMXP64GX is ideal for application developers who require open systems solutions for mission-critical applications. Featuring two high performance Intel Pentium III processors - Low Power at 700 MHz, customers may deploy a Teknor 8U, 16-slot CompactPCI system loaded with a total of 28 peripheral CPUs plus another two CPUs from a Teknor cPCI-DMXS64GX system processor which also features a dual Pentium III processor - Low Power, 700 MHz in a SMP configuration.

"Internet traffic grows more than 100% every six months and servers are increasingly becoming overloaded," explained Jan-Philippe De Broeck, Teknor´s board level product manager. "What Teknor can do is provide OEMs and Application Developers with an open multiserver solution that consists of building a scalable CompactPCI server on a cluster of servers using Teknor´s CompactPCI board-level solutions. The result is the highest density and the most performance with exceptional uptime."

Other performance enhancements include the integration of 1.5 GB of SDRAM, support for dual Ethernet, a 64-bit CPCI bus, one multiple mode parallel port (SPP, EPP, ECP), two serial ports, and support for a standard 2.5" IDE drive mezzanine in a single (4HP) slot, ideal for additional storage applications. It also features a unique standalone circuitry which enables it to function as an independent node.

This makes for a compelling, high end systems solution for unsurpassed clustered multi-processing using Teknor´s IPTalky technology (IP on CompactPCI bus) for Windows NT, VxWorks, and Linux-based applications. One of many examples of this could be a clustered internet server that reproduces telecom-grade characteristics using Linux and open-source software as the base technology.
