ADLINK Technology Presents Dual Quad-Core 6U CompactPCI Intel Xeon Processor Blade with Server Class Intel 5100 Memory Controller Hub

The breakthrough cPCI-6920 series offers high performance for datacom, telecom and military applications.

ADLINK Technology, Inc. (TAIEX:6166), a leading provider of trusted embedded products, today announced availability of the cPCI-6920 series, the PICMG 2.0 compliant 6U CompactPCI dual-processor blade featuring two Quad-Core/Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processors, server class Intel 5100 chipset, four SO-RDIMM sockets for up to 16GB DDR2-667 registered ECC memory and 1066MHz front side bus. The cPCI-6920 provides network and military equipment providers and telecom equipment manufacturers with eight times the computing power of previous single-core products and higher memory capacity.

In addition to multi-core computing power, ADLINK's new cPCI-6920 offers a 64bit/66MHz PMC or x8 PCI-Express XMC site for high speed I/O expansion, such as 10Gigabit Ethernet and high end graphics. The cPCI-6920 brings RAID 0/1 enabled SATA/SCSI storage device support via rear transition module (RTM), and reserves space for a 2.5" Serial ATA hard drive directly mounted on the SBC and RTM. A CompactFlash slot and embedded 4GB USB NAND flash are additional storage options. Available I/Os include four RJ-45 GbE ports, eight USB 2.0 ports, two DB-9 serial ports and a DB-15 analog graphics port. With its comprehensive feature set, the cPCI-6920 offers high density computing power and data throughput performance, as well as providing flexible I/O and storage options.

Available in 4HP(cPCI-6920) and 8HP (cPCI-6920D) CompactPCI form factors, the single slot version provides one CPU socket which can be equipped with one Quad-Core Intel Xeon (L5408) or one Dual-Core Intel Xeon (LV 5138) processor, and provides two SO-RDIMM sockets for up to 8GB memory capacity. The dual slot version provides two CPU sockets which can be equipped with two Quad-Core Intel Xeon (L5408) or two Dual-Core Intel Xeon (LV 5138) processors, and provides four SO-RDIMM sockets for up to 16GB memory capacity. The cPCI-6920 implements an Intelligent Platform Management Interface (PICMG 2.9) to provide a standard interface for system administrators in a central office to monitor server status. The cPCI-6920 supports up to 64bit/133MHz CompactPCI bus and can be operated in a system slot as master or peripheral slot as a standalone server.

The cPCI-6920 Series is validated for use with Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Windows Server 2003, Fedora Core 8 and Vxworks 6.6.
