WARMINSTER, Pa., 27 May 2007. MEN Micro Inc. in Warminster, Pa., is expanding its line of 3U CompactPCI (CPCI) single-board computers (SBCs) to include the Intel 2.16 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, which provides a 30-percent increase in performance with the same heat dissipation as compared to the Core Duo.

The boards are for applications such as computer monitoring, visualization and control, test and measurement, traffic and transportation, and medical engineering and shipbuilding.

The single-slot F17 can function as a 32-bit, 33-MHz system board for CPCI and CPCI Express systems or as a stand-alone board. The SBC is equipped with Intel's Mobile 945GM Express chipset that offers six PCI Express lines and two SATA lines, making the F17 ideal for applications with high communication requirements.

Standard I/O on the front panel includes a VGA connector, two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces connected via PCI Express and two USB 2.0 ports. Additional I/O functions, which include two DVI connections, a variety of UARTs and other USB 2.0 ports, can be added via side cards.

The F17 features 4 megabytes of L2 cache integrated into the Core 2 Duo and as much as 4 gigabytes of fast DDR2 DRAM. In addition, a CompactFlash slot can be equipped with a 1.8-inch hard disk offering unlimited memory space.

The board comes with various monitors for processor operation, board temperature and rear I/O and with board support packages for Windows, Linux, VxWorks and QNX. For more information contact MEN Micro online at www.menmicro.com.
