Kontron MicroTCA Integrated Platform Awarded "Editors Choice" from eg3.com

Kontron's innovative platform is recognized for leading-edge MicroTCA technology

Eching, Germany/Poway, USA, August 14, 2008 - Kontron's latest MicroTCA integrated platform, the Kontron OM6062, has been given the "Editors Choice" award by the staff at eg3.com - a leading technology website. eg3's Tech Choice awards honor innovative new products in key technology areas such as MicroTCA and Advanced Mezzanine Cards (AdvancedMC).

"eg3 gave Kontron an 'editor's choice' award for their OM6062 MicroTCA product because by reducing costs with its simplified design it holds the promise of extending MicroTCA into new areas such as military, medical, and industrial," explains Jason McDonald, Senior Editor, eg3.com. "It's an exciting example of taking MicroTCA to the next level."

"The Kontron OM6062 represents another example of Kontron's commitment to the rapidly growing MicroTCA and AdvancedMC market where meeting the demands for faster time-to-market and leading-edge technology have become a necessity," said David Pursley, Applications Engineer, at Kontron. "The Kontron OM6062 delivers high processing power in a small, compact unit and Kontron is pleased it has been singled out by eg3.com for an Editor's Choice Award."

While originally developed for the industrial market, the Kontron OM6062 MicroTCA integrated platform is also an ideal fit for any market that has the need for up to six AdvancedMC processing blades in a small footprint. Another key engineering advancement in the Kontron OM6062 is the double-width AdvancedMC module - the Kontron AM5010. Along with integrated graphics and hard drive, the Kontron AM5010 reaches unparalleled levels of performance thanks to either an Intel® Core(TM) Duo or Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo processor on board.
