Radisys Ships COM Express Compliant Products, Offers COM Express Webinars

7/22/2005 - Celebrating final committee approval of the COM Express* standard, RadiSys Corp. (Nasdaq: RSYS) is offering a series of webinars aimed and explaining the benefits of COM Express and is shipping its ProcelerantTM CE product, one of the industry’s first to comply with the standard. COM Express, the new PICMG® (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group) standard for PCI ExpressTM in Computer-on-Modules (COMs) was officially adopted by committee on July 10, 2005.

“RadiSys has been a PICMG member for many years and played a key role in development of the COM Express standard,” said Joe Pavlat, PICMG president and chairman. “Their work with key industry players in the development of COM Express is proof of their commitment to the industry and to open standards.”

“Committee approval is the result of hard work by many participants and will facilitate the industry shift to a computer-on-module standard for a wide range of form factors,” said Bob Pebly, principal systems engineer with RadiSys and secretary for the PICMG COM Express Subcommittee. “OEMs can protect their R&D investment and lower their total cost of ownership by adopting a multi-platform architecture based on COM Express.”

The RadiSys Procelerant CE is shipping today and is one of the industry’s first off-the-shelf, COM Express-compliant, ultra small form factor computing systems. The Procelerant CE consists of a carrier board and four COM modules and is ideal for use in medical, test and measurement and industrial control applications.

In June RadiSys kicked off its COM Express webinars in the US and Europe. This three-part series was designed to give attendees a better understanding of the standard, tools to successfully design card carries for COM Express and tips on dealing with Moore’s Law and thermal management.

Product Availability
The Procelerant CE is available today and pricing starts at $489 for small quantities. For more information, please contact RadiSys at 800-950-0044.
