Kontron Modular Computers presents three high-performance CompactPCI CPU boards: one 3U and two 6U boards, each with a 2GHz Intel Pentium M processor 755 or 760 (CP6011) with passive cooling.

The 3U board CP306, with directly soldered processor and memory, is designed to withstand the harshest conditions. The 6U boards combine maximum computing power with low dissipation.

The CP6011 is optimized for bandwidth-intensive applications, whereas the CP6000, at about 300 Euro less, balances price and performance.

All three CPU boards feature rear I/O support, and software support is provided for Windows XP, XP Embedded and 2000, Linux, and VxWorks amongst others. In addition, the 6U boards offer Windows 2003 Server support.

The CP306 features a 2GHz processor with a 400MHz front-side bus, up to 1GB of DDR-SDRAM with a clock speed of 333MHz, ECC (Error Correction Code), and numerous communications interfaces: on-board Gigabit Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, four USB 2.0 ports, up to four COM interfaces, a CompactFlash socket, and Dual ATA/100 interface.

The 855GME chipset's integrated graphics controller supports 2D, 3D and video capabilities. The CPU is available as a single (4HP) slot or, alternatively, as a dual (8HP) slot with legacy support and a 2.5-inch HDD. Designed for harsh environments, the CP306 is for use in industrial robots, portable data recorders, or train or airplane cockpits.

The CP6000, with an optimized price-to-performance ratio, is equipped with an 855GME chipset, up to 2GB of SDRAM and up to four Gigabit Ethernet interfaces "two in the front and two PICMG 2.16-compliant interfaces via the rear J3 connector" for media gateways, networks and switching applications.
