CompactPCI computer board for low-power harsh-environment use offered by Kontron

ECHING, Germany, 20 Dec. 2013. Kontron in Eching, Germany, is introducing the CP3010-SA long-term available CompactPCI single-board computer for low-power embedded computing applications in harsh environments where fans are not desired or not possible.

The rugged Kontron CP3010-SA is equipped with the system-on-chip (SoC) Intel Atom E3800 processors, and quadruples the performance of previous-generation low-power Intel Atom-based Kontron CompactPCI computer boards without increasing the thermal budget.

This makes the board an drop-in replacement even for Intel Core 2 Duo processor based CompactPCI systems. The board has three times higher graphics performance compared to previous Intel Atom processor-based designs.

The special heat sink design is optimized for convection-cooled environments. The board is designed to operate in extended temperatures from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius.

The EN50155-compliant CompactPCI processor board has soldered SoC and memory and offers high resistance against shock and vibration, and comes with to quad core 1.9 GHz Intel Atom processor and as much as 8 gigabytes of DDR3L memory.

Integrating the Intel Gen7 graphics, it delivers 2D, 3D, and video capabilities to two independent displays connected via 2x DisplayPort and VGA. I/O includes 3x Gigabit Ethernet, 1x USB 3.0, 3x USB 2.0 plus CAN bus and 2x COM ports.

The board is available as single slot (4HP) or dual slot (8HP) version. It comes with board support packages for Linux, Microsoft Windows, VxWorks, and QNX.
