Press Release Summary:
CompactPCI Pentium M 3U processor board, Model cPCI-3840, provides up to 2 GB of DDR 333 memory with optional ECC. It is constructed by assembling 2 PCBs, CPU board core module, and carrier board through board-to-board connection. Mechanical design accommodates 2.5 in. drive with ICE or Serial ATA interface and on-board socket for CompactFlash type II storage media. PCI-X bus is used to communicate between on-board dual Gigabit Ethernet controller and I/O controller.
Original Press Release:
ADLINK Announces a 3U CompactPCI Pentium M Processor Board
ADLINK Technology Inc., a leading embedded computing company, introduces the cPCI-3840, its first 3U CompactPCI Pentium® M processor board. The processor board utilizes the latest embedded chipset, the Intel® 855GME and 6300ESB, and up to 2GB of DDR 333 memory with optional ECC.
The cPCI-3840 delivers excellent processing performance with higher communication bandwidth than previously offered while consuming less power. These features make the product ideal for industrial automation and control systems markets. The cPCI-3840's design complies with Intel's EID roadmap which ensures a long product life.
The cPCI-3840's unique architecture allows for maximum flexibility and fast time-to-market for OEM applications. The product is constructed by assembling two PCBs, a CPU board core module, and a carrier board through a proprietary board-to-board connection. The CPU board consists of the CPU, the 855GME, and the two DDR SODIMM sockets. The carrier board provides the remaining I/O features. This architecture allows for the CPU module to be re-used with unique carriers providing different I/O features for OEM applications.
The cPCI-3840 offers maximum versatility by supporting a wide range of CPUs, including a low voltage Pentium M 1.1G/1.6G/1,7G with 1MB L2 cache and a Pentium M 755 (2.0G), 745 (1.8G) with 2MB L2 cache. The cPCI-3840 is also available with a BGA packaged ultra low voltage Celeron M 600MHz CPU for OEM.
By implementing the Intel 855GME, the cPCI-3840 allows for multiple memory options with support for both ECC and non-ECC memory. Multiple storage device options are provided for the 2-slot wide chassis. The cPCI-3840's mechanical design accommodates a 2.5" drive with either IDE or Serial ATA interface and an on-board CF socket for CompactFlash type II storage media.
The high-performance PCI-X bus is used to communicate between the on-board Intel 82546EB dual Gigabit Ethernet controller and the 6300ESB I/O controller, allowing for true GbE bandwidth performance. The 6300ESB also integrates a 32-bit/33MHz CompactPCI bus, four USB 2.0 ports, two COM ports, IDE interface, and a two-stage watchdog timer. A second GbE port, second COM port, and two additional USB 2.0 ports and DVI for high quality digital display are accessible from the rear transition module (RTM).
The cPCI-3840 is available from stock. All ADLINK Technology computer boards come with a two-year warranty and 30-day money back guarantee.
