Kontron announced the OM6040D MicroTCA integrated platforms. The Kontron OM6040D features a 10 Gbit/s Ethernet switched backplane, supports up to four high-end AdvancedMCs, hosts up to 16 Intel Xeon processor cores and 96 GB of RAM, two pluggable AC/DC power supply units, and a compact chassis (266 x 428 x 365 mm). The OM6040D is ideal for embedded systems like communications (data conversion and encryption), energy (smart grid infrastructure), industrial automation (high-speed video processing for quality control), medical (diagnostic applications with sophisticated image-enhancement techniques), and military and aerospace (radar towers). The Kontron MicroTCA platform OM6040D is available now.
The Kontron OM6090D and OM7090D MicroTCA platforms are designed for high-end AdvancedMCs and are compliant with the MTCA.1 specification. The OM6090D and OM7090D feature a 10 Gbit/s Ethernet switched backplane. In their maximum configuration, the systems can be fitted with up to 36 Intel XEON processor cores and a full 216 GB of RAM. The Kontron OM6090D and OM7090D MicroTCA platforms are available now.
The Kontron OM6060 MicroTCA platform is a compact and modular development platform. It is ideal for prototypes in test equipment, packet processing and industrial applications. The OM6060 supports multiple CPUs with I/O-boards over PCIExpress (PCIe) without need of an extra PCIe fabric switch. PCIe fabric clocks are generated on the OM6060 backplane. The Kontron OM6060 is configured for the design, evaluation, and test of small, compact, and highly integrated multiprocessor systems.
Kontron announced the AM4020 single-width AdvancedMC processor module. The AM4020 features the new Intel Mobile Core i7 processor, Intel QM 57 Platform Controller Hub, and up to 2 x 2.53 GHz. The highly-integrated Kontron AM4020 AdvancedMC processor board is available now in both mid- and full-size formats. It supports Windows XP, Windows 7,VxWorks 6.8, RedHat 5.3, SUSE 11.2, and Wind River Linux PNE 3.X.
The Kontron OM6061 is a carrier grade 1U MicroTCA platform. The Kontron OM6061 features an 8-fan front-to-back cooling set-up, an integrated 360W -48V or -60V power supply, and a cost optimized MCH module within in a 1U, 12.5 deep rack-mountable platform. The Kontron OM6061 MicroTCA platform offers six mid-size AdvancedMC slots for multiple system configurations. It is ideal for a wide assortment of central office and service aggregation point applications, ranging from SIP Servers, SSL Offload, and content-aware processing and QoS over Ethernet. The Kontron OM6061 is in full production with samples available immediately.
