RadiSys Endura TP945GM Mini-ITXexpress Motherboard with Intel Core Duo

RadiSys® Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS) has expanded its popular Procelerant(tm) Endura product line with the new Endura TP945GM Mini-ITXexpress motherboard. A versatile new solution with an Intel Core Duo processor, the Endura TP945GM Mini-ITXexpress has significant performance enhancements and reduced power consumption compared with the previous generation. The Endura TP945GM features advanced audio-video capabilities through the use of the Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express chipset with an integrated 3D graphics engine based on Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 950 architecture and eight channel High Definition Audio. This new motherboard is also just 6.7″ x 6.7″ (170mm x 170mm) square and RoHS compliant.

The Endura TP945GM has an estimated production lifetime of five to seven years, eliminating the need to qualify new board revisions every year, as is typical of commercial motherboards. Consequently, the cost of ownership is significantly reduced. The Endura TP945GM is designed for extended temperature operation up to 70C, so it is ideal for use in space constrained systems and where there are more demanding thermal requirements. In addition, the Endura TP945GM is designed for increased performance with lower power consumption in order to provide more MIPS per watt. The integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 also delivers exceptional 3D graphics performance. Designers of next-generation systems will use the Endura TP945GM in applications such as medical imaging, entertainment systems, web-based terminals, kiosks, gaming, network appliances, test-and-measurement, industrial automation and more.

“The new Endura TP945GM Mini-ITXexpress is a very versatile small form factor motherboard,” said Peter Mitchell, product line manager for the RadiSys Procelerant Endura product line. “As with all RadiSys products, we collaborated closely with our customers in the development of this new board and the result is a great product that will satisfy their requirements for size, power consumption, scalability, flexibility and performance.”

“The Intel® Core(tm) Duo processor and Mobile Intel 945GM Express chipset delivers the graphics performance and power-efficiency required by today’s demanding embedded systems software applications such as graphics-intensive gaming and medical imaging applications,” said Rose Schooler, director of marketing, Infrastructure Processor Division, Intel. “This compelling technology is ideal for high performance, small form factor embedded motherboards such as the RadiSys Endura TP945GM.”
