Emerson Network Power introduced their PrAMC-7220 AdvancedMC (AMC) general purpose processor module. The PrAMC-7220 is powered by the latest 45nm Intel Core 2 Duo dual core processor. The PrAMC-7220 module is ideal for wired and wireless networking, security/surveillance, medical imaging, industrial control, and defense/aerospace markets. The PrAMC-7220 supports clock synchronization and is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, MontaVista Carrier Grade Edition Linux, and Wind River Systems Platform for Network Equipment Linux Edition.
The PrAMC-7220 features 4GB of NAND flash memory and a MicroSD expansion slot for additional solid state storage. The PrAMC-7220 also features a front panel 1000BASE-T I/O including dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0, and RJ-45 console serial ports to increase connectivity and network bandwidth. Additional connectivity to the carrier board is also available via dual SATA-150 storage interfaces and x8 PCI Express lanes.
The module is available in full-size (1.8 GHz) and mid-size (1.2 GHz) models equipped with 4GB DDR2-400 SDRAM. The PrAMC-7220 features an IPMI-based management interface, which enables operators to pinpoint and fix problems at the module level with a reduced fault group size. The board is also fully hot-swappable, enabling operators or service personnel to replace or service modules without bringing down an entire blade or system. These features enable scalability, reduce sparing costs and mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) as well as lower both capital and operating expenditure.
