SBS Technologies, represented by Metromatics , has introduced a new 3U CompactPCI conduction cooled single board computer to its line of Intel processor-based products.
This new SBS single slot CR3 computer is ideal for industrial and military applications, process control and other embedded/OEM systems that operate in harsh environments.
The 3U conduction cooled CR3 uses an ultra low voltage (ULV) Intel Celeron processor. The ULV Celeron processor operates with a core clock speed of 650MHz, meeting performance needs of the CR3 while offering the benefit of low power consumption, using only +1.1V when operating at 650MHz.
Built for harsh and demanding operating locations, the CR3 has extended shock and vibration tolerances and contains an on-board temperature sensor to monitor operation within a wide temperature range of -40Â°/+85Â°C.
The rugged, extended temperature CR3 is equipped with 128MB of SDRAM and 512KB of boot Flash memory and includes two 10/100Base-T Ethernet ports, two RS232 serial ports, two USB 2.0 ports, an IEEE 1284 parallel port, and front-panel PS/2 keyboard and mouse ports.
For increased flexibility, an optional dual CompactFlash storage disk mounted on an XB-CR3-CFIDE daughter card is available for quick erase and replacement of storage memory in the field.
The CR3 offers the versatility of operating as a system controller or peripheral card through the dual-mode functionality of the PCI/PCI bridge and supports Linux, VxWorks, Windows XP and Windows XP Embedded; for other operating systems contact SBS.
