SBS Technologies’ new rugged 3U Compact PCI Single Board Computer is designed for harsh environments, making it ideal for demanding military and industrial applications.
The convection- or conduction-cooled CR4 Intel Pentium M processor-based SBC packs high-performance computing power in a small 3U package making it a tailored fit for many military applications.
Available from Metromatics Pty Ltd , the CR4 gives engineers abundant I/O to work with by providing two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two 32-bit 33/66MHz PCI bus interfaces, an RS-232 and an RS-422/485 serial I/O ports and ten general-purpose I/O lines to the backplane with separate interrupts and interrupt masking capability.
This SBC also incorporates the Intel 855GME chipset, which includes the Intel 855GME Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) and Intel 6300ESB I/O Controller Hub (ICH).
The CR4's PLX PCI 6254 PCI/PCI bridge handles 32-bit data transfers to and from the CompactPCI backplane and through the bridge's dual mode capability, the CR4 can operate as a system controller or peripheral processor card eliminating the need to stock multiple configurations.
The CR4 supports various operating systems as well as the SBS Ready Driver interoperability program.
* Intel Pentium M 1.4GHz low voltage processor
* 3U CompactPCI form factor
* Ruggedised convection or conduction-cooled versions
* System controller or peripheral mode operation
* Type I CompactFlash module on daughter card 143.tiff.
