Kontron Modular Computers Rolls Out CP306 Board with Pentium M 745 CPU

7/30/2004 - In addition to the existing 1.1 and 1.6 GHz Pentium M with passive cooling methods, Kontron offers also the 1.8 GHz version (Intel Pentium M Processor 745). Compared to the 1.6 GHz version, the L2-cache are identical. At the same time the power dissipation was significantly reduced as a result of the new 90 nm production process.

The 1.8 GHz of the Intel Pentium M Processor 745 on the CompactPCI 3HE CPU CP306 are as high-power as the 2.8 GHz Office Intel Pentium Processor. Nevertheless, the board needs only passive cooling methods as the power dissipation has been reduced by approximately 50 percent. As processor and memory are both soldered directly to the board, the CP306 is suitable for use in harsh environments. Typical applications include robots, mobile data acquisition systems, aircraft cockpits and train driver cabins.

The CP306 CPU board includes extensive communication interfaces as well as a high performance processor with up to 1.6 GHz clock rate, 1MB L2 on the cache, 333 MHz memory clock rate and 400 MHz processor side bus. The on-board communications interfaces include 1 x Gigabit Ethernet, 1 x Fast Ethernet, 4 x USB 2.0 and up to 4 COM channels. Kontron also can enhance the peripheral interface upon request using Kontron rear I/O modules. A dual ATA100 interface is provided as well as a CompactFlash socket. Memory options include a maximum of 1 GByte DDR-SDRAM/PC333 (with ECC). The board is available with a single slot (4HP) or a dual slot (8HP). The 8HP CP306 variant provides legacy support and a 2.5" HDD carrier. If less performance is needed, systems can be scaled with the 1.1 GHz version according to the requirements. The CP306 is also designed for the extended temperature range.

The operating systems supported include Windows XP, XP Embedded and 2000, Linux and VxWorks.

The CP306 are available for purchase in production quantities from now on.
