RadiSys Rolls Out Endura EPC-2327 Half Size PCI Card

7/8/2004 - RadiSys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS) announced the EPC-2327, a half size PCI card based on the Intel® 815E embedded chipset. The EPC-2327 is the latest in RadiSys’ Endura product line and is engineered for use in compact systems like those found in medical imaging, gaming, industrial automation and control applications.

The EPC-2327 can be used in small backplane-based systems or as a standalone controller card without a backplane. In either case the half size PCI card offers OEMs a choice of entry-level or mid-range performance, since it can be configured with Intel® Pentium® III and Intel® CeleronTM processors. Additionally, the EPC-2327 provides a long life solution, which benefits OEMs with a lower overall cost of ownership.

“We continue to strengthen our Endura product line with innovative products that help OEMs develop better products faster and more economically,” said Richard Smith, vice president, commercial segment and quality, at RadiSys. “For OEMs who are developing smaller, smarter products like medical imaging, industrial automation and control systems, the EPC-2327 offers a proven, flexible, long life solution in a small form factor.”

The EPC-2327 features an integrated video solution, which offers a choice of interfaces for driving either a standard analog VGA display or a digital LVDS panel. RadiSys has also equipped the EPC-2327 with temperature monitoring which enables the processor fan speed to be managed automatically under software control. This can extend the operational life of the fansink and minimizes dust build-up by adjusting the fan speed according to system load and environmental conditions. Full revision control and change management ensures that customers are provided with excellent sustaining support over the life of the product.
