Emerson Network Power Extends Rugged Intel Core i7 Portfolio with Conduction Cooled 3U CompactPCI Single-Board Computer

Emerson Network Power's conduction cooled CPCI7203 3U CompactPCI blade

Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) April 26, 2011

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity™, today extended its portfolio of rugged embedded single-board computers based on Intel® Core™ i7 processors with the launch of a conduction cooled variant of its CPCI7203 3U CompactPCI® blade. Designed for a wide range of high performance tasks in harsh environments, the rugged CPCI7203 provides an excellent size, weight and power ratio for high bandwidth military/aerospace, first responder and rugged industrial applications.

Conduction cooling enables the Emerson Network Power CPCI7203 rugged variant to operate in extended temperatures of -40 to +85 degrees Celsius versus the zero to +55 degrees Celsius capability of the commercial grade board. The storage temperature range is also extended to -50 to +125 degrees Celsius. The CPCI7203 is further ruggedized to withstand higher levels of sine and random vibration, shock and humidity than commercial standards. Conformal coating is available as an option.

Emerson Network Power has also increased the memory capacity supporting the 2.0 GHz Intel Core i7 dual-core processor on the CPCI7203. The board now supports up to 8 GB soldered ECC DDR3 memory, increased from 4 GB. The conduction cooled variant also now features an optional 128 GB solid state hard drive. The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) enhances data security and encryption capabilities.

The Emerson Network Power CPCI7203 supports the CompactPCI PlusIO specification (PICMG® 2.30) J2 pinouts for USB, SATA and PCI Express. Connectivity includes SATA ports, one universal PCI and four PCI Express (2.5 Gbps) interfaces. An optional rear transition module offers even more connectivity options. Hot swap capability complies with the PICMG 2.1 specification. The Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) supports the PICMG 2.9 specification; the Emerson Network Power CPCI7203 can host the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) or act as a Peripheral Management controller (PM) node.

The Emerson Network Power CPCI7203 supports a range of operating system and software options including Wind River VxWorks, Fedora 11 Linux, Microsoft® Windows® and Green Hills INTEGRITY.
