Original Press Release:

A Full Family of High-Speed Low-Power Universal Pentium® M CompactPCI Computer Boards

~ Faster Time-to-Market, Compliant to PICMG standards ~

Irvine, CA (July 13, 2005) - ADLINK Technology Inc., a leading manufacturer of PC-based industrial computers for measurement, automation, and communication, announces the newest additions to its 6U CompactPCI board family, the cPCI-6841 and cPCI-6842. The cPCI-6840 family combines Intel's latest high performance low power processor the Pentium® M with the 855GME MCH and two different I/O controller hubs. The Pentium® M has a highly efficient instruction execution unit and coupled with a large L2 cache; it can outperform other processors at the same clock speed. The 855GME has an integrated 250MHz 32-bit 3D/2D graphics engine capable of supporting simulations CRT and flat panel displays. The ICH packs a plethora of peripherals include Serial ATA 150, PATA, USB 2.0, watchdog timer, and serial port.

"The CompactPCI form factor continues to find applications outside of the telecommunications industry. By creating a family of cPCI- 6840 products, ADLINK offers more choices in price and performance. This allows for better acceptance in applications requiring the board space of a 6U product but without extra functions such as the IPMI (PICMG 2.9). By creating families of products, a broader market acceptance can be achieved," said Bruce P. McGrath, ADLINK Vice President Sales and Marketing.
