Kontron Boosts Module Performance

ECHING, Germany -- Kontron announced today the introduction of its most powerful single AdvancedMC processor module, designed with the 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor. With up to 4 x 2.1 GHz, the new Kontron AdvancedMC processor module AM4022 offers more than twice the processing performance and up to four times the 3D graphics performance of its predecessor. This makes the Kontron AM4022 an ideal fit for applications based on MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA integrated platforms that require high-end computing performance.

With its outstanding overall performance it is ideal for MicroTCA and AdvancedTCA telecommunications applications such as IPTV, media servers and media gateways, video data processing and in test solutions for networking equipment. Also medical, test and measurement, automation, aerospace, military and security markets which require fast data processing are best served with the Kontron AM4022. And with MicroTCA.1 support for a robust system design and an optional temperature range of -25 to +70 °C, it withstands the toughest mechanical and thermal environmental conditions.

The Kontron AM4022 comes with latest dual-core and quad-core CPU performance that is scalable up to the 2.1 GHz Intel Core i7-3612QE processor. Additional versions with further standard voltage, low voltage and ultra-low voltage processors will be available, providing developers and OEMs the highest flexibility when designing leading edge systems with high performance and low heat dissipation. Compared to its predecessors, the integrated Intel HD4000 graphics of the Kontron AM4022 provides an immense performance boost supported by DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1, OpenCL 1.1 and Intel QuickSync Video for high performance video transcoding. The new AMC features up to 8 GB of soldered DDR3 1600 MHz ECC-protected memory for increased data integrity and system stability. Additionally, up to 64 GB of SLC NAND Flash can be integrated to host a complete operating system and application code which substantially increases overall system speed and availability.
