ATCA Vendors Use Intel's New Core

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- ADLINK Technology, Inc. today announces new embedded products based on the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family with 32nm process technology. ADLINK has implemented these processors in form factors ranging from 3U CompactPCI® to PICMG® 1.3 to COM Express™. These highly-integrated embedded solutions offer customers advanced technologies and new levels of computing performance for applications including transportation, military, factory automation, medical and gaming.

“We are proud to announce our new range of products utilizing the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family which bring enhanced graphics and computing performance to our customers.” stated Stephen Huang, Vice President of the Industrial Computing Product Segment at ADLINK. “Embedded applications benefit from the improved performance-per-watt of these new processors. Integrated Intel® HD Graphics further enhances ADLINK’s new products by providing cutting edge 3D rendering and enhanced HD video playback.”

“The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family fully integrates the CPU, processor graphics, and memory controller in a new micro-architecture on Intel®‘s 32nm process technology. It provides significant performance gains over the previous generation, enables lower cost of total ownership, and allows a smaller footprint through increased power efficiency,” said Matt Langman, Director of Product Marketing, Embedded Computing Division, Intel®.

In a separate release:

ECHING, Germany -- Parallel to the launch of the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors, Kontron announced that it will be supporting this advanced new microarchitecture with CPU, processor graphics, memory controller (some with ECC support) and PCIe controller on a single die on over 10 embedded platforms. The 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3/i5/i7 processors have a completely new microarchitecture, enabling small-sized designs to be created with unmatched computing power, graphics performance and energy efficiency on a small footprint*. In addition, with Kontron’s value-added middleware, and strength in offering market-specific I/Os via FPGA, even more specific applications can be custom-tailored.

The first Kontron product to feature this highly integrated processor with improved graphics performance is the Kontron COM Express™ basic ETXexpress®-SC Computer-on-Module. In Q1 2011, a mini-ITX, Flex-ATX embedded motherboard and 6U CompactPCI® blade will follow. Other platforms planned for 2011 include 3U CompactPCI®, 3U VPX, AdvancedMC™, PCIe/104™, ATX embedded motherboards, several industrial PCs.

“With our new COM Express™ Module ETXexpress®-SC and all other upcoming platforms, customers are able to create very energy-efficient high-performance applications directly with the availability of this new processor generation,” says Dirk Finstel, CTO at Kontron. “On top of this, we support them with our cross platform middleware, Kontron EAPI (Kontron Embedded Application Programming Interface), that offers a highly efficient I/O access and application migration to reduce engineers R&D efforts and time to market for the next generation applications. Our service doesn’t stop at this unique feature set either. Additionally, we also offer extensive custom design services as well as migration support that include validation and verification. The goal of all those value adding features to this amazing new processor is to drive customers’ R&D costs and time-to-market down to a minimum.”
