A new 3U CompactPCI PlusIO compatible processor blade supports high-speed serial point-to-point connections. The cPCI-3970 Series from Adlink is equipped with the latest quad and dual core 2nd Generation Intel Core i7/i5 processor, also known as Sandy Bridge, with ECC memory support, and the Intel QM67 Platform Controller Hub (PCH). It is a high-performance solution for applications in industrial control and automation, transportation and medical segments that require enhanced graphics capabilities, ECC memory and high-speed I/O interconnects.

The cPCI-3970 Series includes two blade types based on the same electrical and mechanical design: the cPCI-3970, which is equipped with HM connectors, and the fully PICMG 2.30-compliant cPCI-3971, which features an Ultra Hard Metric (UHM) J2 connector with a data transfer speed of 5 Gbit/s. Both products are compatible with the CompacPCI PlusIO pin assignment and support PCI Express Gen2 x4, three SATA ports, three USB 2.0 ports and two Gigabit Ethernet ports at the J2 connector.

The cPCI-3970 Series is a 3U CompactPCI blade with rich features for different applications. For high density computing applications, it can operate in a system slot as a master or in a peripheral slot as a standalone blade. In addition, the cPCI-3970 Series is compliant with the PICMG 2.9 specification and supports system management functions based on the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) as well as hardware monitoring of physical characteristics such as CPU and system temperature, DC voltages and power status. With different riser cards installed and the addition of a Rear Transition Module (RTM), the cPCI-3970 Series provides versatile I/O interfaces up to two DisplayPort/DVI/HDMI, four serial ports, four SATA ports, five USB 2.0 ports, four GbE ports, PS/2 KB/MS, audio ports, and one PMC/XMC site for expansion flexibility. Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2) is also supported to provide efficient hardware-based data protection.

The DisplayPort supports single link DVI or HDMI by passive adapter cable and analog VGA interface by active adapter cable. With the Adlink XMC-G460 graphics module installed in the XMC site, the cPCI-3970 Series supports up to four independent displays. Storage interfaces supported by the cPCI-3970 Series include one SATA 6 Gbit/s direct connector for a 2.5” HDD/SSD, CompactFlash socket, CFast socket and three SATA ports on RTM with RAID 0/1/5/10 support. The Adlink cPCI-3970 Series supports the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 7, RedHat Enterprise Linux 6 and VxWorks.
