CP306: Low Power Compact PCI CPU Board with Intel® Pentium® M Processor

Increased Power Efficiency, Performance and Durability

The new CP306 Compact PCI 3U CPU board from Kontron Modular Computers (formerly PEP Modular Computers) is based on the Intel® Pentium® M Processor. Although the processor is clocked at only 1.6 GHz, its performance is similar to that of a 2.4 GHz desktop-class Intel® Pentium® 4 processor. The board´s power dissipation has been reduced by approximately 50 percent, requiring the use of passive cooling methods only. The CP306 1.1 GHz variant can be operated in the extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. Since the processor and memory are both soldered directly to the board, the CP306 is suitable for use in harsh environments. Typical applications include robots, mobile data acquisition systems, aircraft cockpits and train driver cabins. If an application does not explicitly require the high performance of the CP306, scaled down versions also are available, such as the CP303 (Mobile Pentium III M processor at up to 1.2 GHz) or the CP302 (Mobile Pentium III processor up to 700 MHz).

Kaufbeuren, July 10, 2003 - The CP306 CPU board includes extensive communication interfaces as well as a high performance processor with up to 1.6 GHz clock rate, 1MB L2 on the cache, 333 MHz memory clock rate and 400 MHz processor side bus. The on-board communications interfaces include 1 x Gigabit Ethernet, 1 x Fast Ethernet, 4 x USB 2.0 and up to 4 COM channels. Kontron also can enhance the peripheral interface upon request using Kontron rear I/O modules. A dual ATA100 interface is provided as well as a CompactFlash socket. Memory options include a maximum of 512MB DDR-SDRAM/PC333. The board is available with a single slot (4HP) or a dual slot (8HP). The 8HP CP306 variant provides legacy support and a 2.5" HDD carrier.

The operating systems supported include Windows XP, XP Embedded and 2000, Linux and VxWorks.

The CP306 will be available for purchase in production quantities beginning end of July 2003.
