ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Performance Technologies (NASDAQ: PTIX), a leading provider of innovative network communications solutions, today announced the availability of its newest member of IPnexus® MicroTCA™ systems, the AMP5071. Designed for system engineers developing IP-based communication products, the new AMP5071 provides a virtually endless range of flexible options to meet design criteria for telecom, networking, as well as aerospace and defense communication systems.

The company will be hosting a webinar entitled, "Complete MicroTCA Application-Ready Platforms: Reduce Costs and Time-to-Market," on Wednesday, March 18, 2009 at 2:00PM eastern time. Registration for the online seminar can be accessed at:

Fully integrated and operational right out of the box, the new AMP5071 enables embedded engineers to begin their new product development faster, without all the time spent integrating disparate technologies from multiple vendors into a working prototype. The fully integrated system is ideal for applications such as WiMAX gateways, LTE infrastructure equipment, radar gateways, weather alert systems, enterprise VoIP/SIP servers, transportation network equipment, and scientific compute and monitoring systems.

The new AMP5071 comes integrated with a choice of processing Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC). Developers can select an Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor, or a Freescale™ MPC8641D dual-core 1 GHz PowerPC® processor. Additional AMC modules for I/O, storage, and compute functions can be easily configured and integrated into the system in order to meet a wide range of IP-based communications design criteria. In addition, the high availability MicroTCA system comes loaded with the company’s NexusWare® Carrier Grade Linux® OS and development environment, and remote systems management software, NexusWare Portal.

"In today’s cash-tight economy, finding new ways to leverage repeatable cost-cutting and time-saving methodologies is paramount. Our integrated platforms of hardware and fully developed Linux software enable system integrators and OEMs to more rapidly and cost-effectively design, develop, and deploy their next generation, IP-based communication systems," said Tony Romero, senior product manager at Performance Technologies. "This complete and tightly integrated approach can not only trim their schedule by months and man-years, but also has the potential to provide significant cost-savings in the project development phase of new, leading-edge communication solutions."
