I-Bus Rolls Out IBC2804 Pentium-M CompactPCI Server Blade

6/1/2004 - I-Bus announces the launch of their new IBC 2804, 6U Single Slot CompactPCI Server Blade featuring Intel Centrino mobile technology with low voltage Intel Pentium-M processors. The IBC 2804 is designed to deliver the high performance and bandwidth demanded by the emerging switch-fabric applications blade server, mission critical and computing intensive applications such as third-generation (3G) wireless, voice over internet protocol (VoIP), networking image processing, and other demanding telecom/data communication applications.

The CPU delivers Pentium-M processor at up to 1.6 Ghz and supports future Intel speed upgrades enabling scalability and flexibility of the solution.

Program and data storage needs are met with support for up to 2 Gbytes of DDR and 1 Gbytes of CompactFlash. Additional features include dual Gigabit Ethernet, PMC expansion and Video interface including 8MB VRAM. Also supported is the full set of standard PC peripherals including Dual Ultra DMA IDE, two USB ports, RS-232 serial ports, bi-directional parallel port, mouse and keyboard. Optional features include Ultra320 SCSI support at rear side and rear I/O transition board.

As the mission-critical demand increases in the next generation networking and telecommunication equipments, the IBC 2804 has been optimized to play as a master card in a cPCI system. It could also plug into a peripheral slot as a standalone server blade, isolated from the cPCI bus, commuting with other blades in the system through Gigabit Ethernet switching fabric on the back plane. IBC-2804 is designed in compliance with PICMG 2.9 specification supporting remote system and platform management.
