CompactPCI CPU board for cost-sensitive industrial projects

Kontron AGvisit website


Kontron is introducing the Kontron CP6001-V, a new 6U value-line CompactPCI CPU board specially designed for cost-sensitive industrial applications.

Equipped with the 1.86GHz Intel Celeron M processor 440, the Intel 945GM chipset, up to 4GB 533MHz DDR2 SO-DIMM and the ICH7-R IO controller hub, the Kontron CP6001-V CompactPCI board is optimised to provide an excellent price/performance ratio. Due to its industrial components and four Gigabit-Ethernet interfaces, the CPU board is suitable for demanding, powerful industrial automation and IP switching applications.

All necessary industry required interfaces, such as a serial port, VGA graphics interface, four Ethernet ports, two front USB ports, PMC, HDD, CompactFlash and USB flash disk support are supplied with the 4HP single-slot, space-saving CompactPCI board. With an integrated graphics accelerator on the Intel 945GM chipset, the Kontron CP6001-V provides high-resolution graphics up to 2048 x 1536 pixels at 75Hz and 2D/3D multimedia quality video. The Intel 945GM chipset also enables balanced memory usage between graphics and system for optimised performance (up to 128MB of dynamic video memory allocation).

With the Intel ICH7-R I/O Controller Hub the Kontron CP6001-V CompactPCI board provides advanced I/O technology including USB 2.0 and Serial ATA300. The PMC site, USB Flash, CompactFlash socket and an optional onboard 2.5inch hard disk can all be used at the same time in a single 4HP slot. Utilising the modular extensions, all industrial requirements for write-protected operating systems and data storage capabilities are supported.

Ethernet interfaces

Two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces available on the front panel operate independently of the additional two PICMG2.16 compliant Ethernet channels, which are routed to the backplane. The highly versatile Kontron CP6001-V CompactPCI processor board can be used in a system or peripheral slot. A rich set of LEDs is available on the front panel for debugging and diagnostic purposes.

Also supplied is a complete and self-installing Board Support Package for Microsoft Windows XP, Windows XP Embedded and Linux. The onboard temperature and voltage sensors can be monitored; the front panel LEDs, hardware watchdog and timer can be triggered to support application-specific features.

Beginning with the cost-optimised CompactPCI XL Pocket housing, Kontron offers a broad range of modular standard 1U up to 10U CompactPCI systems that can be used with the Kontron CP6001-V CompactPCI CPU board. Power supplies for AC and DC environments complete the portfolio for all applications.

Samples of the Kontron CP6001-V CompactPCI CPU board are available now. Series production will begin in the fourth quarter of 2008. OEM prices are available on request.
