CP307-RS CPU board

Kontron has developed the CP307-RS CompactPCI processor board that features enhanced serial ATA capabilities on the rear I/O for enhanced storage capacity, faster transmission rates and high data safety. Featuring four serial ATA 3.0Gbit/s ports and high performance RAID functions (0, 1, 5, 10), the board performs as a RAID controller for rugged environments.

The CP307-RS doubles the serial ATA ports to the backplane. In combination with the Kontron CP-RIO3-RS Rear Transition Module, the new CPU board enables high-performance RAID 5 and 10 solutions without additional RAID controller boards. By this, the Kontron CP307-RS feeds the growing demand for excessive disk space, storage bandwidth and data integrity based on the robust and reliable CompactPCI technology.

Its enhanced storage capabilities make it useful in applications such as video surveillance, image processing and media servers in the transportation, aerospace, governmental and industrial automation markets. The board helps to overcome the storage space limitations for extremely rugged Solid State Drive based designs.

The Kontron CP307-RS is available with Intel Core Duo or Intel Core 2 Duo processors. Integrated with the Intel Mobile 945GM Express chipset and Intel ICH7-R Southbridge, the Kontron CP307-RS achieves performance-per-watt values in a 3U form factor. The high performance version of the CP307-RS features the Intel Core 2 Duo 1.5GHz low-voltage (L7400) processor; 667MHz front side bus, up to 4Gbyte of DDR2-SDRAM with 10.6Gbit/s memory bandwidth. All Kontron CP307 CPU boards provide extensive communications interfaces including 2x Gbit Ethernet.

The graphics accelerator integrated into the Mobile Intel 945GM Express ensures excellent 2D, 3D and video features for the VGA output. The robust CompactPCI board design allows the Kontron CP307-RS to be used even under the harshest environmental conditions.

The Kontron CP307-RS CompactPCI 3U processor board runs with Windows XP, XP Embedded, Linux and VxWorks software packages.

The Kontron CP-RIO3-RS RTM is also being launched to coincide with the release of the Kontron CP307-RS. The Kontron CP307-RS and the RTM CP-RIO3-RS are available now.
