CP6002 6U CompactPCI board

From Kontron comes the CP6002 6U CompactPCI processor board based on the latest Intel Corei7 mobile processor technology.

With the 2.53GHz Intel Core i7-610E and the LV 2GHz Intel Core i7-620LE, the long-term available Kontron CP6002 not only speeds up multiprocessing tasks via hyper-threading technology, but also processes single-threaded tasks much faster thanks to the new Intel Turbo Boost technology. This allows for a clock speed of up to 3.33GHz without exceeding the defined thermal design power (TDP) and without the need to oversize the entire system for peak loads. On the memory side, up to 8GB of soldered DDR3 1066MHz ECC memory ensures data accuracy for demanding and safety-critical applications like radar, sonar, or imaging systems. In addition to the CompactFlash socket for rugged, industrial grade flash modules, up to 32GB of NAND flash (64GB upon availability) are possible via SATA interface, which are able to hold complete operating systems or application code, substantially increasing overall system speed and availability.

The CP6002 comes with six serial ATA interfaces with RAID support, one front and two rear high-resolution graphics interfaces (VGA/DP/HDMI) and up to two PMC/XMC slots. In addition, six USB 2.0 ports are available on the board, two on front I/O and four on rear I/O. Further interfaces include two COM ports, one RS-232 port implemented as an RJ-45 connector on the front panel and routed to rear I/O as well as one RS-422 port on the rear I/O.

It runs with VxWorks 6.8, Linux (RedHat), Microsoft Windows 7, Windows XP, XP embedded or Windows Server 2003 or 2008. Highly integrated support packages support all onboard hardware devices, and also specific features like hot swap ability, IPMI, power, and thermal management enabling effortless integration among scalable multiCPU systems. Samples of the Kontron CP6002 are available now. Full production is scheduled for Q3 10.
