Adlink Technology Inc. has introduced the AMC-1000, the company's latest single-width, mid-size AdvancedMC Processor Module. Combining a dual-core 64bit low-power processor and server-class integrated 3100 chipset to optimize power consumption, computing power and I/O bandwidth.

With dual GbE links, flexible PCIe x8 bandwidth and a UXGA high-color analog display, the AMC-1000 provides AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA adopters with flexible, high-speed data transport configurations that are suited for the communications, military, medical and industrial automation markets.

The AMC-1000 features a 64bit Intel Core2 Duo 1.5GHz processor with 4Mbyte L2 cache and 667MHz front side bus. Its dual-core architecture offers advanced processing speed while addressing the power and heat constraints of the mid-size AMC form factor. The Intel 3100 chipset combines server-class memory and I/O controller functions into a single component, providing low-latency, high-throughput data transfer capability without CPU intervention.

Specifically optimized for embedded communication applications requiring high bandwidth, the AMC-1000 is built with an industry standard DDR2-400 SO-RDIMM socket that supports up to 4Gbyte system memory with ECC protection. Features such as a soldered down 4Gbyte USB interface NAND flash, an onboard PLX PEX8508 PCIe Switch and an ATI ES1000 graphics controller, make theAMC-1000 an optimum choice for various applications on AdvancedTCA or MicroTCA platforms.

The AMC-1000 supports eight AMC.1 PCIe lanes, which can be configured as two x4 or eight x1 PCIe ports. It also supports two GbE Serdes ports compliant to AMC.2 E2. In addition, two Serial ATA v1.0 ports compliant to AMC.3 S2 Serial ATA support off-board storage. Supported OS include Windows XP Professional, XP Embedded, Server 2003, feature Pack 2007 and RedHat Enterprise Linux.

Jeff Munch, CTO of Adlink explained, "We choose the Intel Core 2 Duo processor with the 3100 chipset for this product because it provides a highly scalable x86 architecture that delivers next generation performance and a flexible upgrade path from 32bit to 64bit computing. Moreover, this product is unusual in today's marketplace because of its relative small size and server class performance."

The AMC-1000 is now available. An extended temperature version will be available in Q3 08, to support operating temperatures from -20C to 70C.
