Kontron releases CompactPCI Serial components for embedded systems
Kontron's 3U CompactPCI Serial (CPCI-S.0) compliant chassis platform and peripheral boards are designed for 10 Gigabit (10GigE) and Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), XMC-based I/O and SATA hard disks used in embedded systems.
A 3U CompactPCI Serial (CPCI-S.0) compliant chassis platform and peripheral boards are designed for 10 Gigabit (10GigE) and Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), XMC-based I/O and SATA hard disks used in embedded systems. These system components are aligned to the Kontron CPS3003-SA processor board featuring the Intel Core i7 processor, so that pre-integrated modular CompactPCI Serial system configurations with PCI Express (PCIe), GigE, USB, and SATA over backplane are also available to OEMs. The CPS3003-SA board supports Linux, Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows XP and VxWorks. The CP6004X-SA, a 6U serial mesh 10GigE board, is based on the latest-generation quad-core Intel Core processor and can be installed in the CP-RAPID3 chassis with full-mesh fabric configuration.

NEW PRODUCT PRESS RELEASE
Kontron's systems expertise expanded with the launch of a family of pre-integrated CompactPCI Serial building blocks
With high-speed to hybrid CompactPCI Serial applications
Eching/Nuremberg, Germany -- As part of its 'High-Speed CompactPCI Initiative', at the Embedded World 2013 trade show in Nuremberg, Kontron is presenting a 3U CompactPCI Serial (CPCI-S.0) compliant chassis platform as well as peripheral boards for 10 Gigabit and Gigabit Ethernet, XMC-based I/O and SATA hard disks. These building blocks are already aligned to the new Kontron CPS3003-SA processor board featuring the Intel Core i7 processor, so that pre-integrated modular CompactPCI Serial system configurations with PCIe, GbE, USB and SATA over backplane are also available to OEMs. Customers will also benefit from a rapid time-to-market and minimal integration efforts, which Kontron can also provide as part of its accompanying service program.
Kontron 6U CompactPCI processor board and chassis innovation provide an industry first with 10 GbE system throughput
CompactPCI Serial Mesh (based on PICMG 2.20) performance increases for data-intensive, high-performance applications
Eching/Nuremberg, Germany -- As part of its 'High-Speed CompactPCI Initiative', Kontron is launching the world’s first 6U CompactPCI Serial Mesh 10 Gigabit Ethernet
processor board together with a compliant chassis at the Embedded World 2013 trade show. For the first time, a CompactPCI system supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet and PCIe over backplane in addition to the common interfaces such as PICMG 2.16, SATA and HDMI. The Kontron CompactPCI processor board CP6004X-SA is based on the latest generation Quad-Core Intel Core processor and offers high computing power and performance-per-watt, which really comes into its own in the CP-RAPID3
chassis with full-mesh fabric configuration.
Kontron introduces first 3U CompactPCI Serial processor board for modular, high-speed applications
First processor board in Kontron's 3U PICMG CPCI-S.0 product family comes with the latest Intel Core i7 processor and boasts an extensive feature set
Eching/Nuremberg, Germany -- As part of its 'High-Speed CompactPCI Initiative', Kontron is showcasing its first 3U CompactPCI Serial (CPCI-S.0) processor board at the Embedded World 2013 trade show in Nuremberg. The Kontron CPS3003-SA comes equipped with latest 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processors and, for the first time, offers PCI Express Gen 3.0, USB 3.0, SATA 6G and Gigabit Ethernet over backplane. This paves the way for completely new application scenarios and can greatly boost performance in comparison to classic CompactPCI installations. Significant interest in CompactPCI Serial has been identified in numerous market segments including industrial automation,
test and measurement equipment as well as transport and traffic systems and also include medical and defense technology.
At the same time, the new Kontron CompactPCI Serial class processor board is very flexible. For OEMs, who still rely on classic CompactPCI boards, Kontron offers the CPS3003-SA as an option in combination with a CPCI extension module. This means that both CompactPCI Serial boards as well as classic CompactPCI boards can operate together in a hybrid system. This enables OEMs to easily continue using existing boards without any re-design or requirement to replace their existing CompactPCI boards. Not only are OEMs provided with a clear migration path to a high speed point-to-point connection of CompactPCI Serial, but they can also optimize their applications' time-to-market and product lifecycle to minimize their total cost of ownership.
Kontron's CompactPCI Serial processor board CPS3003-SA in detail
Kontron's new CompactPCI Serial processor board is available in multiple versions and scalable from the 1.7 GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor 3517UE to the quad-core Intel Core i7 processor 3612QE. For memory-hungry applications, it offers up to 16 gigabytes of ECC DDR3 SDRAM. The Mobile Intel QM77 Express chipset already provides numerous interfaces by default, so that the processor board delivers a high performance density in the smallest of spaces. The whole spectrum of serial point-to-point interfaces is accommodated in just 3 units of height: peripheral boards which are especially data-intensive can be connected via two PCI Express Gen 3.0 fat pipes with x8 or x4 lanes. Additionally, five PCIe x1 lanes are available. Hard disk carriers, such as the Kontron CPS3101, can be connected via four SATA ports, two of them via SATA 6Gb/s ports. Plus, there are two USB 3.0 as well as six USB 2.0 ports routed to the backplane. For networking purposes, there are two Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be routed to
the front panel or to the backplane. Additionally, OEMs are presented with two additional USB 2.0 ports and two DisplayPort connections on the front. Furthermore, the CPS3003-SA provides the option to offer rear I/O via the P6 connector, which adds two USB ports (1x USB 3.0 and USB 2.0), a third independent DisplayPort and two serial ports.
The Kontron CPS3003-SA supports Linux, Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows XP and VxWorks. Highly integrated Board Support Packages cover all the hardware components integrated on the board.
The Kontron CompactPCI Serial processor board is now available as a COTS component or as an application-ready platform pre-integrated in Kontron's CompactPCI Serial systems.
