CompactPCI: Kontron unveils new range of rugged 6U boards
Kontron AG unveiled the CP6001– a new 6U cPCI (CompactPCI) board based on Intel’s Core Duo / Core 2 Duo processor and mobile chipset – during the
Embedded Systems Conference (ESC)
in Boston, MA. The new line provides OEMs and other machine builders with a solid combination of low power consumption and robust processing speeds for demanding embedded applications.
Most notable about the CP6001 is the various “ruggedized” configurations available: R1 for standard air-cooled environments, R2 for high-shock and high-vibration environments and the conduction cooled R3, the most durable in the range which is fully compliant with
47 ECC4 requirements. For applications requiring non-rotating and non-volatile memory, up to 8GB of USB memory or up to 2GB of soldered flash is available.
Support for multiple operating systems is also available, including for the
VxWorks Real-Time Operating System (RTOS).
