IBASE Introduces IB940 Full-Size CPU Card with Intel Q965, Core 2 Duo

IBASE Technology (TASDAQ: 8050), a leading manufacturer of industrial motherboards and computers and member of the Intel(R) Communications Alliance, has launched its new IB940 full-size CPU card, responding to the need for stable and high speed performance required in the industrial computing environment. Designed with product longevity, the IB940 utilizes the latest Intel(R) Q965 chipset to support Intel’s Core(TM)2 Duo processors. Featuring front size bus of 533/800/1066MHz, PCI Express x16 graphics interface as well as PCI x1 I/O ports, the IB940 delivers 64-bit computing with faster access to peripheral I/O devices.

The IB940 comes with the updated Graphics Memory Controller Hub (GMCH) backbone architecture that uses available memory bandwidth to reduce latency in memory accesses. With support for dual independent display, it delivers richer visual color and picture quality without the need for additional discrete graphics card. The CPU card can either have one 10/100 BaseT Ethernet controller or dual robust Gigabit networking connectivity. A total of 6 USB 2.0 interface and four serial ATA ports support are provided to ensure the greatest expandability. Dimensions of the board are 338mm by 126mm. IB940 are already sampling and will ship in volume in Q4 2007.

IBASE also offers the IP470 PICMG-bridge backplane that can be used with the IB940 CPU card. It has 12 PCI and 2 full-size ISA slots. IP470 has a size of 264mm by 311mm.
