TAIPEI, Taiwan, 9 Sept. 2011. ADLINK Technology Inc. in Taipei, Taiwan, is introducing the CompactPCI 3970 family of 3U CompactPCI PlusIO compatible embedded computing processor blades for industrial control and automation, transportation, and medical applications that require enhanced graphics capabilities, ECC memory, and high speed I/O interconnects.

The 3970 embedded computers support high-speed serial point-to-point connections, and has quad- and dual-core 2nd Generation Intel Core i7/i5 processor with ECC memory support, and the Intel QM67 Platform Controller Hub (PCH).

The 3970 has HM connectors, and the PICMG 2.30-compliant 3971 has an Ultra Hard Metric (UHM) J2 connector with a data transfer speed of 5 gigabits per second. Both products are compatible with the CompactPCI PlusIO pin assignment and support PCI Express Gen2 x4, three SATA ports, three USB 2.0 ports, and two Gigabit Ethernet ports at the J2 connector.

The 3970 series is for high density computing applications, and can operate in a system slot as a master or in a peripheral slot as a stand-alone blade. The 3970 series provides as many as two DisplayPort/DVI/HDMI, four serial ports, four SATA ports, five USB 2.0 ports, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, PS/2 KB/MS, audio ports, and one PMC/XMC site.
