CompactPCI® board and rear Transition Module for demanding RAID applications
Eching, Germany, July 14, 2009 – The new CompactPCI® processor board Kontron CP307-RS features enhanced Serial ATA capabilities on the Rear IO for enhanced storage capacity, faster transmission rates and high data safety. With 4 SATA 3.0 Gb/s ports and high performance RAID functions (0, 1, 5, 10), the new Kontron CP307-RS performs as a leading-edge RAID controller for rugged environments.
Based on the standard Kontron CP307 3U CompactPCI® series, the new Kontron CP307-RS doubles the SATA ports (Kontron CP307 2xSATA) to the backplane. Furthermore, in combination with the Kontron CP-RIO3-RS Rear Transition Module, the new CPU board enables high-performance RAID 5 and 10 solutions without additional RAID controller boards. By this, the Kontron CP307-RS feeds the growing demand for excessive disk space, storage bandwidth and data integrity based on the robust and reliable CompactPCI® technology. Applications such as video surveillance, image processing and media servers in the transportation, aerospace, governmental and industrial automation markets profit from the enhanced storage capabilities of the new Kontron CP307-RS. Adding to this, the Kontron CP307-RS helps to overcome the storage space limitations for extremely rugged Solid State Drive based designs.
The Kontron CP307-RS is available with Intel® Core™ Duo or Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processors. Integrated with the Intel® Mobile 945GM Express chipset and Intel® ICH7-R Southbridge, the Kontron CP307-RS achieves unprecedented performance-per-watt values in a 3U form factor. The high performance version of the CP307-RS features the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo 1.5 GHz low-voltage (L7400) processor; 667 MHz front side bus, up to 4 GB of DDR2-SDRAM with 10.6 Gbit/s memory bandwidth. All Kontron CP307 CPU boards provide extensive communications interfaces including 2 x Gbit Ethernet. The graphics accelerator integrated into the Mobile Intel® 945GM Express ensures excellent 2-D, 3-D and video features for the VGA output. The robust CompactPCI® board design allows the Kontron CP307-RS to be used even under the harshest environmental conditions.
The Kontron CP307-RS CompactPCI® 3U processor board runs with Windows XP, XP Embedded, Linux and VxWorks software packages.
The Kontron CP-RIO3-RS RTM is also being launched to coincide with the release of the Kontron CP307-RS.
The Kontron CP307-RS and the RTM CP-RIO3-RS are available now.
