6U CompactPCI Board with Third Generation Core Processor
Page 1 of 1
A new 6U CompactPCI processor board sets new performance-per-watt marks for high-end applications. Based on the Intel QM77 Express Chipset and scalable up to the quad-core third generation Intel Core i7-3615QE processor with 4 x 2.3 GHz (3.3 GHz in Turbo mode), the CP6004-SA from Kontron provides up to 20 percent enhanced computing power and increased performance per watt compared to designs based on the second generation Core processors. Further advantages include the integrated HD 4000 graphics. OEMs and designers benefit from twice the HD media and 3D graphics performance by an improved user experience and stunning visuals. With support for DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1, AVX and OpenCL 1.1, developers can now use the latest APIs to accelerate the development of their applications.
The power-optimized Kontron 6U CompactPCI processor board CP6004-SA is designed for high density, thermally constrained CompactPCI systems that require high performance in a typical 60 watt or less power envelope. It is scalable with four processors from low-power dual-core variants up to extremely powerful quad-core technology to meet all individual mission profiles, and delivers outstanding data throughput and enables out-of-band communication through IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface). Data protection is secured by the optional onboard Trusted Platform Module (TPM 1.2). In addition, there is a 6 Mbyte cache and up to 16 Gbyte of 1600 MHz DDR3 ECC SO-DIMM memory. The CP6004-SA supports a configurable 64-bit/66 MHz PCI or PCI-X, hot swap CompactPCI interface.
The Kontron 6U CP6004-SA offers a range of interfaces: 6x SATA ports with RAID 0/1/5 functionality for enhanced data security, 6 x USB 2.0 ports, 2 x RS-232 ports, three independent graphics interfaces (1x VGA, 2x DVI/HDMI) and High Definition Audio (HDA) interfaces as well as 5 x Gigabit Ethernet connected via PCI Express to meet the high performance requirements of communications applications. One SATA 6 Gbit/s port can be used for an onboard 2.5-inch SSD, HDD or an up to 32 Gbyte large Flash-SATA module that can be integrated to hold complete operating systems and application code, which substantially increases overall system speed and availability, supported by the optional write protection feature. An XMC socket (via PCI Express x8) or PMC socket for mezzanine cards ensure plenty of room for custom expansions, like the dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet network interface cards from Kontron. The CP6004-SA runs with Linux (Fedora, RedHat, Windriver), VxWorks (6.9 and later), Microsoft Windows 7, Windows XP, XP embedded or Windows Server 2008-R2.
