Advantech has announced the launch of its new optimised server board, PCE-7210, a SHB Express (also referred to as “PICMG 1.3”) System Host Board with support for dual Intel® Xeon®/Xeon® LV processors up to 3.6 GHz. Equipped with the Intel E7520 chipset and the Intel 6300ESB I/O controller, the new optimised server board, PCE-7210, supports up to 8GBs of dual-channel DDR2-400 ECC registered RAM.
 
The PCE-7210 provides two PCIe x8 and one PCIe x4 connection, offering up to 10 GB/s of bandwidth to the SHB Express backplane. Another PCIe x4 is linked to a Broadcom BCM5715C dual-port Gigabit LAN chip, enabling high throughput for demanding network environments. An IPMI module is optionally available to provide comprehensive platform management.
 
The PCE-7210’s versatility and capability to support larger data sets applications makes it ideal for a variety of high-performance computing and server applications. It is compliant with the RoHS specification, and is fully compatible with Advantech’s 13-slot SHB Express backplane, the PCE-7B13-64A1E, and comprehensive chassis range.
 
Higher Performance, Increased Efficiency
The PCE-7210 is based around the advanced architecture of the Intel E7520 chipset, which consists of the E7520 Memory Controller Hub (MCH) and the 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub. This server chipset provides an 800MHz FSB connection to dual Intel Xeon or Xeon LV processors with 2MB of L2 cache. With four DIMM slots, the PCE-7210 supports up to 8GBs of dual-channel DDR2-400 ECC Registered DIMM and is ideally suited to a broad range of memory intensive applications. Dual DDR2-400 memory channels deliver a maximum memory bandwidth of 6.4 GB/s. Additionally, ECC Registered DIMM includes memory error detection and correction, which is crucial in industrial environments where rock-solid reliability is essential.
 
Outstanding I/O Bandwidth, Enhanced Scalability
The PCE-7210 is compliant with SHB Express specifications, and features two x8 and one x4 PCI-Express connections to provide a substantial 10 GB/s of bandwidth to the backplane. The combination of the PCE-7210 SHB and the 13-slot backplane PCE-7B13-64A1E enable the SHB system to provide two PCIe x8, six PCI-X and four PCI expansion slots for high-bandwidth add-on cards. It’s an ideal platform for a wide range of computing applications which require high I/O bandwidth and reliability.
 
Additional System Management
An optional small form factor “mezzanine board” is also available, designed to provide a fully-fledged IPMI 2.0 interface with LAN and serial port connections for comprehensive platform management capabilities.
