Germany : Kontron introduces first 3U CompactPCI® Serial processor board for modular, high-speed applications [TendersInfo (India)]

(TendersInfo (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) As part of its 'High-Speed CompactPCI® Initiative', Kontron is showcasing its first 3U CompactPCI® Serial (CPCI-S.0) processor board at the Embedded World 2013 trade show in Nuremberg. The Kontron CPS3003-SA comes equipped with latest 3rd generation Intel® Core i7 processors and, for the first time, offers PCI Express Gen 3.0, USB 3.0, SATA 6G and Gigabit Ethernet over backplane. This paves the way for completely new application scenarios and can greatly boost performance in comparison to classic CompactPCI® installations. Significant interest in CompactPCI® Serial has been identified in numerous market segments including industrial automation, test and measurement equipment as well as transport and traffic systems and also include medical and defense technology.


At the same time, the new Kontron CompactPCI® Serial class processor board is very flexible. For OEMs, who still rely on classic CompactPCI® boards, Kontron offers the CPS3003-SA as an option in combination with a CPCI extension module. This means that both CompactPCI® Serial boards as well as classic CompactPCI® boards can operate together in a hybrid system. This enables OEMs to easily continue using existing boards without any re-design or requirement to replace their existing CompactPCI® boards. Not only are OEMs provided with a clear migration path to a high speed point-to-point connection of CompactPCI® Serial, but they can also optimize their applications' time-to-market and product lifecycle to minimize their total cost of ownership.

Kontron's CompactPCI® Serial processor board CPS3003-SA in detail Kontron's new CompactPCI® Serial processor board is available in multiple versions and scalable from the 1.7 GHz dual-core Intel® Core i7 processor 3517UE to the quad-core Intel® Core i7 processor 3612QE. For memory-hungry applications, it offers up to 16 gigabytes of ECC DDR3 SDRAM. The Mobile Intel® QM77 Express chipset already provides numerous interfaces by default, so that the processor board delivers a high performance density in the smallest of spaces. The whole spectrum of serial point-to-point interfaces is accommodated in just 3 units of height: peripheral boards which are especially data-intensive can be connected via two PCI Express Gen 3.0 fat pipes with x8 or x4 lanes. Additionally, five PCIe x1 lanes are available. Hard disk carriers, such as the Kontron CPS3101, can be connected via four SATA ports, two of them via SATA 6Gb/s ports. Plus, there are two USB 3.0 as well as six USB 2.0 ports routed to the backplane. For networking purposes, there are two Gigabit Ethernet ports, which can be routed to the front panel or to the backplane. Additionally, OEMs are presented with two additional USB 2.0 ports and two DisplayPort connections on the front.

The History of Fiber in Data Centers, Part II

As I stated at the close of "The History of Data Centers, Part I," Fiber Mountain™ believes data centers must evolve from hub and spoke architecture—in which traffic is aggregated and delivered to a central hub—to a design that includes many direct connections.

Three Things Your Boss Wants—No, Needs—To Know About Glass Core

Fiber Mountain™ CEO and Founder— plus my longtime friend—M.H. Raza does a terrific job on this blog of explaining how our Glass Core™ architecture transforms the way data centers build their network infrastructure.

The History of Fiber in Data Centers, Part I: Past and Present

Fiber Mountain, as our company name suggests, believes fiber cabling must play a central role in helping data centers scale affordably as bandwidth needs continue to grow. Before I go further down the path to the future, however, I want to back up and provide a high-level history of fiber in the data center.

Four Reasons to Make the Leap to SDN in Your Data Center

I'm always fascinated by what causes a business trend to emerge, grow and sometimes expand to actually redefining the industry as a whole. Having spent years in the technology field, I've found the networking sector particularly exciting in this regard because true innovation can and does transform entire segments of our industry. Revolutionary processes and technologies make past deployments and best practices look laughable in light of recent innovations.

Reflections From the Fiber Mountain Launch
