ADLINK Technology introduced the NuPRO-E320 PICMG 1.3 full-sized System Host Board (SHB). The NuPRO-E320 supports the next generation Intel Core 2 Quad/Duo processors on 45 nm process at up to 3.00 GHz. The board also supports dual-channel DDR3 800/1066 MHz memory up to a maximum of 8 GB in two DIMM slots. The module features the Intel Q45 Express Chipset with 800/1066/1333 MHz front side bus. The NuPRO-E320 is the ideal for applications requiring high-performance computing and high data transfer speeds — such as industrial control, automation, machine vision, intelligent transportation systems, and telecommunications. The NuPRO-E320 is currently available at a list price starting at $365.
ADLINK NuPRO-E320 System Host Board Features
- PICMG 1.3 Full-Size SBC
- Intel Q45 + ICH10 chipset supports up to 1333 MHz FSB LGA775 Intel Core 2 Quad/Duo processor
- Dual-Channel DDR3 800/1066 MHz, up to 8 GB
- One PCI Express x16 and four PCI Express x1 (or one x4) link to backplane
- Dual Gigabit Ethernet via PCI Express x1 Bus
The NuPRO-E320 SHB offers an array of I/O, storage, and expansion options. It supports one PCI Express x16 and four PCI Express x1 (or one x4) links to the backplane. The system host board also supports dual 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet for networking, 9x USB 2.0 ports, and 4x SATA 3 Gb/s ports for other expansions. For data-protection, the NuPRO-E320 optionally supports Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 for secure storage of keys, passwords and digital certificates.
The ADLINK NuPRO-E320 supports DDR3 memory, which provides an increase in data access bandwidth over DDR2 at lower power consumption. DDR3 allows continued performance scaling (1600+ Mb/s) with less power. The increased memory transfer rates combined with quad-core computing performance lets the NuPRO-E320 provide engineers with the latest performance for PICMG 1.3 systems.
The PICMG 1.3 specification enables designers to take maximum advantage of the latest chipset functionalities, provides increased bandwidth capability, and allows flexible and simplified system design. The ADLINK NuPRO-E320′s integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 provides built-in high performance graphics and also supports PCI Express add-on graphics cards and video capture cards for today’s industrial vision applications such as automated optical inspection (AOI) and other digital imaging tasks. The NuPRO-E320 PICMG 1.3 SHB is fully compatible with ADLINK’s frame grabber cards such as the PCIe-RTV24 and PCIe-CPL64.
