ADVANTECH has announced the release of its first direct soldered CPU CompactPCI cards, the redesigned MIC-3321 series. These are single and double layer 3U cPCI CPU cards, engineered for high performance and reliability in critical applications.
There are a variety of models to choose from in this new series, depending on user needs.
The basic features of all models include an RS232 port, two USB ports, two LAN port, and a VGA port. For space demanding requirements, the MIC-3321 can be ordered as single layered design.
There is also support for CPUs ranging from the high performance Intel Pentium M 2GHz, to a Celeron M 800MHz CPU.
The MIC-3321 series of cPCI cards is designed with directed soldered CPU and memory, providing the units with less weight and higher shock and vibration resistance than traditional socket devices.
“When we decided to redesign the MIC-3321 series, we wanted to try and fulfill some of the most demanding requests that customers have for cPCI cards,” Alan Su, cPCI product manager at Advantech, said.
“We are very excited that we were able to achieve direct soldered CPUs and also be able provide units as small as 4HP. In this new series of cards, there is a model to fulfill any application.”
MIC-3321 offers three different CPU grades, from the high performance MIC-3321 with Intel Pentium M 2GHz, to the reliable MIC-3321C and MIC-3321L series with Intel Celeron M 1GHz/800MHz CPUs which also tolerate a wider temperature range (-25°to +70°C).
Advantech’s new CompactPCI MIC-3321 CPU card series is targeted for use in mission-critical environments such as military applications and telecommunications.
However, with such high reliability these cards can be used wherever bullet-proof computing is required.
