RadiSys Rolls Out Five New High Performance Intel-based Motherboards

5/15/2003 - RadiSys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS) announced four new dual Intel® XeonTM Processor-based motherboards and a Pentium® 4 Processor-based motherboard. These boards expand the popular RadiSys Endura family of long life motherboards, giving customers a broader range of embedded motherboards to choose from, including solutions for use in enterprise, networking, medical imaging, data storage, test & measurement, industrial control and gaming applications.

The dual Xeon motherboards (VB7505, BR7501, CW7501 and WV7501) and Pentium 4 board (SV845PE) were designed to support applications at higher performance levels, while keeping the total cost of ownership down. Addition of the five boards means OEMs can choose the exact Endura motherboard to fit their solution need, from entry-level platforms to very high performance compute and I/O intensive applications. RadiSys helps OEMs minimize their total cost of ownership by offering extended life, engineering support and change management services to meet customers' solution requirements.

"Expanding the Endura line means we can provide OEMs with an entire spectrum of products from low-end platforms to high performance solutions that are required for developing complex applications," said Fred Yentz, vice president for RadiSys. "Broadening our product line with the new dual Xeon and Pentium 4 boards means customers developing complex applications now have an ideal platform that will allow them to develop better products, faster."

About the Endura WV7501
The WV7501 is a rack-optimized motherboard designed for use in 1U and 2U chassis. It supports two Intel Xeon processors with 512KB cache and 533MHz system bus. It is based on the Intel E7501 chipset and supports up to 12GB ECC DDR200/266 memory. Key features include dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, dual Ultra320 SCSI ports, an integrated Rage XL video controller with 8MB video memory, three independent PCI buses (six 64bit/66MHz slots) and IPMI 1.5 server management. The WV7501 is targeted at high-end Enterprise and telecom applications.

About the Endura SV845PE
The SV845PE is an ATX motherboard based on the Intel 845PE chipset, which supports a 533MHz system bus for greater bandwidth with high performance Pentium 4 processors. The SV845PE has six PCI slots making it ideal for complex embedded Enterprise or industrial control applications, which typically require a high PCI slot count. The 4X AGP slot is also necessary for medical imaging, gaming and test & measurement applications, which incorporate the latest high-end graphics technology. The board supports up to 2GB DDR333 SDRAM memory enabling use of the latest double data rate memory technology. Precision Cooling Technology allows fan speeds to adjust real time according to system temperatures. This reduces unnecessary noise and conserves energy. The SV845PE features Hi-Speed USB 2.0 technology offering 40 times the performance of USB 1.1. Other features include Rapid BIOS Boot, which accelerates the Power on Self Test for fast system access and Instantly Available PC (suspend-to-RAM), which enables advanced power saving features.
