Adlink Technology Inc. has released the NuPRO-E320, its latest PICMG 1.3 full-sized system host board (SHB) supporting next-generation Intel Core2 Quad/Duo processors on 45nm process at up to 3GHz.

Dual-channel DDR3 800/1066MHz memory is supported up to a maximum of 8Gbyte in two DIMM slots. Accompanied by the Intel Q45 Express Chipset with 800/1066/1333MHz front side bus, the NuPRO-E320 is intended for applications requiring high-performance computing and high data transfer speeds such as industrial control, automation, machine vision, intelligent transportation systems and telecommunications.

The NuPRO-E320 features DDR3 memory support, which provides an increase in data access bandwidth over DDR2 at lower power consumption. With DDR2 already at its performance limit, DDR3 allows continued performance scaling (1600Mbit/s+) with less power. The increased memory transfer rates combined with quad-core computing performance lets the NuPRO-E320 provide customers with the latest performance for their PICMG 1.3 systems.

The PICMG 1.3 specification allows users to take maximum advantage of the latest chipset functionalities, provides increased bandwidth capability, and allows flexible and simplified system design. The Adlink NuPRO-E320's integrated Intel' graphics media accelerator 4500 provides built-in high performance graphics and also supports PCIe's add-on graphics cards and video capture cards for today's industrial vision applications such as automated optical inspection and other digital imaging tasks.

The NuPRO-E320 PICMG 1.3 SHB is fully compatible with ADLINK's frame grabber cards such as the PCIe-RTV24 and PCIe-CPL64.

Adlink's NuPRO-E320 provides an array of I/O, storage and expansion options. It supports one PCI Express x16 and four PCI Express x1 (or one x4) links to the backplane. The NuPRO-E320 also supports dual 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet for networking, 9x USB 2.0 ports and 4x serial ATA 3Gbit/s ports for other expansions. For data-protection, the NuPRO-E320 optionally supports Trusted Platform Module 1.2 for secure storage of keys, passwords and digital certificates.

The NuPRO-E320 is fully compatible with Adlink's PICMG 1.3 full-size passive backplanes such as the EBP-5E1 and EBP-7E2.

Adlink's NuPRO-E320 is available now. Pricing starts at $365.
