Concurrent Debuts TP 402/351-RC Conduction Cooled 3U 4HP CompactPCI SBC

For harsh operating environments, Concurrent Technologies introduces a low power, conduction-cooled, 3U CompactPCI® single board computer (SBC). The TP 402/351-RC uses the latest mobile dual core processor and server chipset from the Intel® embedded roadmap – combining the performance of the 1.5 GHz Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo processor with the Intel® 3100 server chipset interfacing up to 4 Gbytes of soldered DDR2 ECC SDRAM. This ruggedized 3U SBC supports an XMC module in a single slot, and can operate in a system slot, peripheral slot or as a blade. The TP 402/351-RC is well suited to conduction-cooled applications within the transportation, industrial control, telemetry, defence, security, and aerospace markets. A ruggedized air-cooled version and a range of commercial extended temperature versions are also available.

Concurrent  Technologies TP 402/351-RC Conduction Cooled 3U 4HP CompactPCI SBCThe TP 402/351-RC conduction cooled board, including conformal coating, operates at altitudes of -1000 to +50,000 feet (-305 to + 15,240 meters) over -40°C to +85°C (no airflow) and the ruggedized design operating at a shock of 40g (11ms, half-sine), sine vibration 5g (5Hz-2KHz) and random vibration, 0.1g2/Hz (10Hz-1KHz) with 6dB/octave from 1KHz to 2KHz.

The TP 402/351-RC board supports the 1.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor L7400 (soldered) – this dual-core processor provides 4 Mbytes L2 cache (shared between the cores), a 667MHz Front Side Bus and supports 64-bit operating systems. The Intel 3100 chipset combines server-class memory and I/O controller functions into a single component and interfaces up to 4 GBytes of soldered DDR2-400 ECC memory with a peak memory bandwidth of 3.2 Gigabytes/s.

The TP 402/351-RC version supports, in a single 3U 4HP slot, an XMC site (via a x4 PCI Express port). All versions can operate as: a system controller (for up to 7 peripheral slots with hot-swap control), or as a peripheral board or as a blade.

Mass storage space (for the operating system, application software and application data) is provided by the onboard 512 Mbytes flash disk and two Serial ATA150 interfaces via J2. There is a user-mountable option, on all board versions, for a single or dual channel flash disk module accessed via the XMC connector, ideal for security sensitive applications.

Graphics can be provided by using Concurrent Technologies’ conduction cooled graphics PMC (IO PMC/722-RC) mounted on their conduction cooled 3U CompactPCI PMC Carrier (TP CR1/PMC-RC). Ruggedized air-cooled versions and a range of commercial extended temperature versions are also available.

For fast external control and high-speed data paths, the TP 402/351-RC provides two high-speed USB 2.0 ports, one RS232/422/485 and one RS232 port, plus the Intel® 82571EB dual Gigabit Ethernet controller (with a x4 PCI Express port) that can sustain data-rates of up to 4 Gigabits/sec via the two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The 32-bit CompactPCI control/data plane throughput can operate at 33/66MHz backplane PCI signaling speeds. Other features provided are PC real-time clock, watchdog timer, long duration timer, and legacy speaker interface.

For ease of integration the TP 402/351-RC supports many of today’s leading operating systems, including Linux®, Windows® XP, Windows® XP Embedded, Windows® Server 2003, Windows® 2000, LynxOS®, QNX® and VxWorks®.
