A 6U CompactPCI SBC is based on the latest Intel Core i7 mobile processor technology. The CO6002 from Kontron is designed to bring high performance with low power consumption and low heat dissipation to a broad range of applications. With the 2.53 GHz Intel Core i7-610E or the LV 2.0 GHz Intel Core i7-620LE, the long-term available CP6002 speeds up multiprocessing tasks via hyper-threading technology (HTT) and also processes single-threaded tasks much faster thanks to the new Intel Turbo Boost technology. This allows for a clock speed of up to 3.33 GHz 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 8 Gbyte of soldered DDR3 1066 MHz 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 32 Gbyte of NAND flash (64 Gbyte 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 Kontron CP6002 is offered in three versions, with either one (CP6002-R1) or two XMCs/PMCs slots (CP6002-R1-MC and CP6002-R2-MC). The Kontron CP6002-R1 can further accommodate an onboard 2.5” SATA HDD/SSD and provides two Gigabit Ethernet ports, one VGA (CRT) port, one COM port and two USB ports on the front panel. The Kontron CP6002-R1-MC and CP6002-R2-MC provide one Gigabit Ethernet port, one DisplayPort (alternatively RS232) and two USB ports on the front panel. Kontron CP6002 supports a configurable 64-bit/66 MHz PCI or PCI-X, hot swap CompactPCI interface. When installed in the system slot, the interface is enabled, and when installed in a peripheral slot, the board is isolated from the CompactPCI bus. Safety and security features via an optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2, two redundant firmware hubs (failover) and Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) are supported as well.

The CP6002 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 multi-CPU systems.
