Kontron brings Intel Atom record breaking performance per watt into CompactPCI systems

EN50155 compliant reliability, soldered components and ultra low TDP for harsh environments

(PresseBox) ( Eching, Germany, )
Kontron is bringing record-breaking performance per watt to 3U CompactPCI systems with the launch of the longtime available processor board Kontron CP305 with Intel Atom processor. The rugged Kontron CP305 features EN50155 compliant reliability and extremely low TDP (Thermal Design Power), soldered processor, chipset and RAM for harsh environments.

Equipped with the 1.6 GHz Intel Atom processor N270, Intel 945GSE plus ICH7M chipset and up to 2 GByte of soldered DDR2 memory the Kontron CP305 has a typical power consumption of only 10 Watt. This is less than half compared to earlier generations with identical performance. Designed for reliable operation in a temperature range from 0 to 60°C for convection cooled environments, the new CompactPCI board powers energy critical and in-vehicle mobile embedded applications in the transportation, automation, energy, military and aerospace markets. A version for the extended temperature range is also planned.

Despite its rugged low-power design, Kontron's latest CompactPCI CPU-board offers a comprehensive set of interfaces: On board the Kontron CP305 are 2 x Gbit Ethernet, up to 6 x USB 2.0, two SATA interfaces, and a CompactFlash socket. The graphics accelerator, integrated into the Mobile Intel 945GSE Express chipset, provides excellent 2D, 3D, and video features for the VGA connector on the front. The 3U CompactPCI CPU board is available as single slot (4HP) or dual slot (8HP). Engineers profit from the 8HP version by additional features including COM, PS/2, DVI on the front for dual monitor operation and a 2.5 SATA hard disk interface to mount a HDD or SSD required for harsher environments.

The Kontron CP305 features integrated board support packages for Linux, Microsoft Windows XP, XP embedded and VxWorks. Samples of the Kontron CP305 3U CompactPCI processor board are available now. Full production is scheduled for end of 2009.
