For Industrial Control, Defense, Oil&Gas, Mining, Transportation

CP3005-SA is the perfect choice for high performance applications, with an improved performance-per-watt compared to predecessors. The single-slot master CPU cards are based on 8th Gen. Intel® Core™ i5 and i7, Intel’s newest refresh of the 14 nanometer technology with up to 6 cores. Combined with Intel® UHD Graphics P630, It provides a new level of graphics performance compared to previous platform designs. When assembled with the 8th Gen. Xeon® E processor, CP3005-SA is selected for typical server applications and whenever error-correcting code (ECC) memory is a must.

CP3005-SA is built to be used in demanding and harsh environments. It is designed for VITA47 EAC3 and a temperature range of -40°C up to +70°C.  The processor’s TDP can be adjusted dynamically to a desired performance and power envelope. The maturity and future-openness of the CompactPCI formfactor is proven in all ECT markets. Typical applications can be found in:

  • Defense
  • Industrial Plant Control, Machine Control
  • Energy, Oil&Gas, Mining
  • Transportation  

8th Generation Intel® Core™ and Intel® UHD Graphics P630

CP3005-SA comes with a 2.5 GHz Intel® Core™ i5-8400H quad core vPro, no ECC, with 8 MByte Cache, and with a 2.7 GHz Intel® Xeon® E-2176M six core vPro with ECC and 12 MByte Cache. Other CPU options will follow. The Intel® UHD Graphics P630 provides three independent graphics outputs and supports DirectX® 12 and OpenGL 4.5. High quality video is typically used for digital signage, digital security, and surveillance.

Revolutionary flash capacities and doubled memory

Up to 32 GByte SDRAM of 2666 DDR4 speeds serve applications with high memory demands. Error Checking and Correction (ECC) is supported in conjunction with the Xeon processor. A SATA flash can be used as storage device for onboard data or operating system data. Typically, capacities of 32 GByte are sufficient for this purpose. But thanks to the formfactor M.2, revolutionary flash capacities of up to 512 GByte at 22x42 mm module size are market-available and enable use even for mass storage!

Variety of Interfaces and Options

The CP3005-SA supports up to three graphic ports VGA and 2x DVI, several USB 2.0 and 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet with Wake-over-LAN (WOL) option and three ports, as well as serial ports, GPIO, and SATA 6Gb/s. Backwards compatibiliy is also granted - Kontron’s available Rear Transition Modules can be re-used. Expansion options are provided to carry a XMC module, or a 2.5” HDD or SSD, and additional M.2 modules of 22x80 mm size. PCI passive mode to run in peripheral slots, opens the door for Multi-CPU systems.

Ready for Kontron APPROTECT/WIBU Security and TPM

CP3005-SA is ready to be used with Kontron APPROTECT, based on Wibu-Systems technology (to be purchased separately as an option). It provides copy protection, IP protection, license model enforcement, license handling, implementation of license models, assignment of privileges or access levels. In addition, CP3005-SA is equipped with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) for enhanced hardware and software based data and system security, such as secure boot and trusted boot.

10 years lifetime of CP3005-SA or even more, and Kontron’s commitment to a rich CompactPCI portfolio, make CP3005-SA a safe investment with low total-cost-of-ownership.
