FREMONT, Calif., 4 April 2009. Themis Computer has released its new XV1 high-performance, VMEbus single board computer (SBC), designed to bring quad-core performance to demanding applications. The Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor using Intel's new 45nm process brings workstation and server performance to the VME market.
These new Xeon processors offer performance, energy efficiency, and extended lifecycle support. Themis' new Intel Quad Core processor-based boards are ideal for compute-intensive embedded, storage, and communications applications, as well as a wide range of commercial and military applications.
Themis' XV1 is based on the low-power, Quad-Core Xeon L5408 processor clocked at 2.13GHz, and Intel's 5100 chipset used in high-performance Xeon servers. The 5100 chipset memory controller supports ECC to maintain the highest system integrity, and provides the bandwidth necessary to support high-performance I/O. XV1 memory is expandable to 8 GBytes of DDRII memory.
The XV1 base configuration includes: two gigabytes of DDR II memory, three Gigabit Ethernet ports, two SATA II ports, four USB 2.0 ports, and two XMC/PMC slots.
An onboard ATI ES1000 video controller is provided with either front- or rear-panel VGA access. Storage can be provided through the use of an onboard CompactFlash or with an optional on-board 2.5 inch SATA drive. The board includes VITA 41 dual-Gigabit Ethernet to support modern networked environments.
