AdvancedMC Sports Quad-Core Performance

A double-wide, full-size AMC module features the new Intel Xeon processor LC5518, which is based on the latest Intel microarchitecture and delivers with its 45nm process technology even lower power consumption and higher integration. This makes the AM5030 from Kontron an attractive solution for MicroTCA platforms designed for dense server environments deployed in storage, military/aerospace and communications networks such as IPTV, VoIP, NAS, SAN and wireless radio network controllers.

The 45nm Intel Xeon processor LC5518 with integrated I/O Hub features a 4-to-1 consolidation of workload functions for greater real estate and power savings. This includes, for the first time, the integration of PCIe Gen 2.0 I/O within the processor. In addition, the new processor offers up to 8 Mbytes shared Last Level Cache, Intel Hyper-Threading technology support and Intel Turbo Boost technology. Thanks to the accompanying Intel 3420 platform controller hub (PCH) and Direct Media Interface (DMI), the Kontron AM5030 takes full advantage of reduced component count and streamlined data-paths between CPU, PCH and peripherals for overall greater performance. Furthermore, an integrated Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) acceleration, which is advantageous for storage customers migrating to Intel architecture or transitioning RAID for core optimization, complements the unique technical feature set.

The AM5030 hosts up to 24 Gbyte ECC memory (DDR3) at 1066 MHz implemented as a 3-channel interface for the highest memory access, and is built with two 10GbE (XAUI) interfaces in accordance with AMC.2 for comprehensive networking capabilities. Four GbE interfaces, two available on the front panel, two in accordance with AMC.2, provide additional networking capabilities. 

The AMC.1/.2/.3-compliant Kontron AM5030 module has full hot-swap capabilities for replacing, monitoring and controlling the module without the need to shut down the MicroTCA system. A dedicated Module Management Controller (MMC) is used to manage the board and to support a defined subset of Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) commands. The new Kontron AM5030 supports RedHat Linux, Windows 7, Windows XP and Windows 2008 Server.
