Not sure where to find advanced embedded computing technology for your next application design? Then look no further than Kontron’s complete line of 3U CompactPCI boards. Kontron, a leader in the 3U CompactPCI market space, offers system designers many options when it comes to system design for harsh environment applications. The Kontron 3U CompactPCI line of products continues to expand in order meet market requirements, and now Kontron offers extended temperature and rugged conductioncooled versions of its 3U CompactPCI boards.

Based on the Mobile Intel® 945GM Express chipset and Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7-R Southbridge, the Kontron CP307-E2 board incorporates PCI Express for high I/O bandwidth achieving unprecedented performance-per-watt values even in the extended temperature range of -40°C to + 85°C. And the recently released ITC-320 series is a family of 3U CompactPCI boards using a high performance and long-term available processing chipset from Intel®. The series features three types of top performance single and dual-core Intel processors in four different designs, including a Rugged Conduction-Cooled (RC) version (pictured here) for reliable operation in even the harshest environments.

Designed with soldered processor and memory to handle the toughest environmental conditions, the high-performance Kontron CP307-E2 CompactPCI board is extremely attractive for applications where boards must meet and exceed the most demanding requirements. For example, due to its extended temperature range, conduction cooled feature and high availability chipset, the CP307-E2 is ideal for remote installations which must run in harsh environments.


The RC version of the Kontron ITC-320 series of CompactPCI boards widens the application range for the product in harsh environments. The RC design supports operational temperatures ranging from –40°C to +85°C according to VITA 47 recommendations. It uses the same Printed Circuit Board as the commercially built product in order to guarantee full binary compatibility between versions. The Kontron ITC-320 series also supports the 1.0 GHz Intel Celeron processor which is an excellent choice when power dissipation is a critical issue.


Both the CP307-E2 and ITC-320 series are available now. For further information, please visit www.kontron.com.
