GE Fanuc Embedded Systems Announces CT11, CP11, Rugged CR11 6U CompactPCI Single Board Computers With Dual Core Intel Technology

    6U CompactPCI SBCs offer Core(TM)2 Duo processor

    --  Choice of Intel Core(TM) Duo or Intel Core(TM)2 Duo processor

    --  Dual Gigabit Ethernet PICMG 2.16 channels, up to 4 GBytes memory

    --  Rugged CR11 option available

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA., April 3 /CNW/ - Providing further evidence of the
company's leadership in developing single board computers that respond to
customer demand for increased processing performance with lower power
dissipation, and the ability to deploy in harsh environments, GE Fanuc
Embedded Systems today announced the CT11 , CP11 and CR11 6U CompactPCI CPU
boards with integrated dual core Intel(R) processing technology: versions are
available with the Core(TM)2 Duo processor, the Core(TM) Duo processor and the
Celeron(R) M processor.

    The new family supports both a 32- and 64-bit processor architecture, and
is designed to meet the exacting requirements of commercial,
telecommunications and military/aerospace organizations, with specific
applicability to simulation/training and test/measurement. All three are
designed to operate in a temperature range of -40 degrees C to +75 degrees C
(depending on configured options), with the CR11 being optionally available as
a rugged version with stiffener bars and wedge locks or in conduction-cooled
form. All three boards are PICMG 2.1 compliant for hot swap capability.

    "These single board computers set a new performance-per-watt standard in
processing throughput, as well as providing a rugged option," said Wayne
McGee, Global Director of SBC Product Line Management at GE Fanuc Embedded
Systems. "The latest dual core technology delivers a level of performance that
tomorrow's applications will require, while lowering the dissipated heat -
making them ideal for applications that demand not only high performance, but
that are also deployed in restricted space or other harsh environments. They
also offer a range of options, allowing customers to select the optimum
solution for each requirement."

    The CR11 rugged single board computer provides a unique feature set,
including 4 GBytes of soldered DDR2 SDRAM with enhanced ECC for increased
reliability; two 10/100/1000 BaseT Gigabit Ethernet ports; Flash drive or
local UDMA100 2.5" hard disk; two SATA channels with RAID 0/1 capability; high
performance 2D and 3D graphics acceleration with 32 MBytes memory and
front/rear VGA and rear DVI-I up to 1,280 x 1,024 resolution; audio
capability; two PMC sites (a PCIExpress(TM) XMC interface is available on
request in place of one of the PMC sites); two serial ports; and four USB 2.0
ports. The CR11 also features four independent on-board PCI buses. It is RoHS
compliant, and supported operating systems are Windows(R), Linux(R) and
VxWorks(R). Integrity is available on request.

    Intel's IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management) Interface is supported on
the CT11, which otherwise provides the same functionality as the CR11, but for
non-rugged applications.

    The CP11 delivers the same feature set as the CT11, but is a dual slot
version, allowing for two PMC slots as well as on board hard disk/CompactFlash
working in parallel, together with all possible front I/O functions.
