ADVANTECH has released the MIC-3369A is a cost-effective CompactPCI single-board computer built around the Intel Pentium M processor. It is an ideal application blade for integration with products that require high performance and low power consumption.
The MIC-3369A has been optimised for the Intel Pentium M processor and Intel E7501 chipset to deliver a 3.2GB/s bandwidth across a 400MHz front side bus. The Pentium M incorporates 32kB of level 1 cache, 1MB/2MB of level 2 advanced transfer cache and up to 3.2GB/s of bandwidth across dual data rate memory channels. The MIC-3369A supports up to 2GB of ECC DDR-200 onboard memory.
For increased performance the MIC-3369A design makes extensive use of Intel’s latest I/O controller hub technology and provides 64-bit data buses throughput. The onboard dual Gigabit Ethernet controller is connected via a 64-bit/133MHz PCI-X for maximum sustained packet throughput.
Industry-standard I/O features include onboard 2.5-inch hard disk and two USB ports. The MIC-3369A also provides one 64-bit/66MHz PMC site for onboard I/O expansion making it flexible enough to meet the most demanding I/O processing needs.
The MIC-3369A can be used in either a system slot or a peripheral slot for applications that require compliance with PICMG 2.16 Packet Switching Backplane specification needing Gigabit speed switched-fabric interconnection between blades. The board is designed in compliance with the PICMG 2.9 specification to work with remote system and platform management modules. It is suitable for telecom and data communication applications such as 3G wireless infrastructure, VoIP, media gateways, soft switches and triple-play server clusters.
