GE Fanuc Embedded Systems Announces IMPCC2 3U CompactPCI SBC and Multifunction PMC Carrier Card

    Market-leading 5 watts SBC power consumption

    --  Low power 603e PowerQUICC processor

    --  Enables development of small, light weight systems

    --  Available in five ruggedization levels

    --  Multiple I/O for extensive functionality

    CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA., April 11 /CNW/ - Demonstrating the company's
leadership in the development of solutions for deployment in demanding
environments, GE Fanuc Embedded Systems today announced the IMPCC2 3U
CompactPCI single board computer (SBC) and Multifunction PMC Carrier Card -
the latest member of the PowerPact 3 family. Available in five air- and
conduction-cooled ruggedization levels, the IMPCC2 is characterized by an SBC
power dissipation of only five watts - significantly less than that of
competing products. Highly flexible, it can be used in a range of applications
from a self-contained single slot embedded computer to a 'dumb' carrier card
with add-on I/O functionality.

    "The IMPCC2 is an extremely versatile product, offering a broad range of
capabilities that can allow the development of complete 3U systems with the
minimum number of slots," said Richard Kirk, Product Manager at GE Fanuc
Embedded Systems. "Deployed either standalone or used in conjunction with
other PowerPact 3 boards - and combined with the extremely compact RT4 rugged
4-slot chassis - it is ideal for solutions in defense and aerospace that are
constrained by space, weight and power."

    Featuring two 10/100 BaseT Ethernet ports, two USB 2.0 ports, four high
speed serial channels, optional VGA video and up to two Gigabytes of solid
state (Flash memory module) storage, the IMPCC2 can be optionally configured
as a standalone or peripheral PowerPC processor using the embedded 266 MHz
603e core in its PowerQUICC (8270) communications processor. The IMPCC2
provides support for a wide range of GE Fanuc Embedded Systems and third party

    Available with comprehensive operating system and Deployed Test support,
first shipments of the IMPCC2 will occur in the second quarter of 2007.
