Kontron's (Germany) CP3010-SA, a low-power 3U CompactPCI CPU board, supports the Intel Atom processors E3827 and E3845. It offers a maximum of quad-core 1,91 GHz processing performance.
EVEN THOUGH THE BOARD DESIGN IS BASED on Atom technology, performance levels of former Core 2 Duo platforms can be reached. Further, the built-in graphics core now features Intel HD graphics technology offering an increase in graphics performance compared to previous Atom designs. Memory demanding applications can make use of up to 8 GiB soldered DDR3L running at 1333 MHz. For onboard data storage, the board offers a CFAST option or a soldered SATA Flash and a HDD/SSD option on the 8HP extension module. On the system side, the board supports a PCI 32-bit, 33 MHz (66M Hz on request) CompactPCI interface enabling a peripheral mode feature.
The board comes with an I/O feature set supporting interfaces such as CAN, Display Port, USB 3.0/2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA, EIA-232 serial ports in common with the audio interfaces Line-In and Line-Out. Available as a 4HP or a 8HP version – optionally combined with rear I/O support - the board can be adapted to a range of application needs. On the 8HP extension, a SJA1000 CAN controller for one CAN port is available.
Using the latest Atom technology, the board offers a low thermal design power value. This feature, in conjunction with the heat-sink design, makes the board a fit for systems and applications where cooling by fans is not desired or not possible. As a result, operation in temperature ranges from -40 °C up to +85 °C is possible.
Designed with direct soldered processor and memory to handle tough environmental conditions, the board can be used in industrial and mobile applications where motion, shock and vibration typically can be found. With respect to the transportation market, the board is fully EN50155 compliant.
