cPCI-3610 CompactPCI

Adlink Technology Inc. has introduced the cPCI-3610 series of ultralow-power 3U CompactPCI processor blade based on the latest Intel Atom processor family on 45nm process technology.

Utilizing Intel Embedded Flexible Design, the cPCI-3610 can be populated with any of these three processorsthe Intel Atom processor N450, D410 or D510. By utilizing these processors, which integrate the graphics and memory controllers in the CPU, the cPCI-3610 series has a power consumption of only 15W with single-core CPU (N450 or D410) and 19W with the dual-core CPU (D510) at 100 percent loading. This allows the cPCI-3610 to support fanless operation and provide excellent computing and graphics performance.

The cPCI-3610 series is equipped with up to 2Gbyte of soldered onboard DDR2-667 SDRAM and an Intel 82810HM I/O controller. Intel Hyper-Threading Technology is supported to deliver thread-level parallelism with two threads per core. The integrated graphics on the Intel Atom processors provide outstanding 3D graphics performance at resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 @ 75Hz, 32bit. Other graphics features such as Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology (Intel DVMT 4.0), DirectX9, and Intel Clear Video Technology are also supported.

"Adlink's cPCI-3610 series CompactPCI processor blade with the Intel Atom processor D510 provides an optimal combination of dual-core performance, 3D-rich graphics features, extremely low overall power consumption and cost effectiveness. Adlink has also created extended operating temperature range and rugged conduction cooled versions. This 3U CompactPCI blade is well suited for mission critical markets such as military, transportation and automation," says Eric Kao, senior Manager of Adlink's modular computing product center.

"The latest Intel Atom processors N450, D410 and D510 and the Intel 82801HM I/O controller provide an integrated ultralow-power two-chip solution that provides scalable computing power and enhanced graphics performance in a small footprint with reduced cooling requirements," says Jonathan Luse, marketing director, Intel low power embedded products division.

The cPCI-3610 is available in 4HP/8HP/12HP versions with Gigabit Ethernet, USB, COM, PS/2 KB/MS, serial ATA, audio and QXGA analog video support. Optional 32bit, 33/66MHz PMC or PCIe x1 XMC site and Rear Transition Module are available for additional expansion.

The cPCI-3610 series supports Microsoft Windows XP Professional, RedHat Enterprise Linux, and Wind River VxWorks.
