Concurrent Technologies Rolls Out AM 110/10x AdvancedMC Module

Concurrent Technologies announce their latest, very high performance Advanced Mezzanine Card (AdvancedMC®) single width full height processor module suitable for AdvancedTCA®, MicroTCA(TM) and proprietary platforms. The AM 110/10x supports either the 2.16 GHz or 1.5 GHz Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo processor to provide high performance processing, and the Intel® 3100 chipset to support up to 8Gbytes of DDR2 ECC SDRAM. The AM 110/10x is designed for use in a variety of applications including wireless base stations, Voice over IP, media-servers, blade-servers within the communication market as well as projects within the defence, security, and industrial markets. For embedded types of applications there is an option for an onboard application flash disk (up to 8 Gbytes). Accordingly, the AM 110/10x supports a variety of industry standard operating systems.

Concurrent Technologies AM 110/10x Advanced Mezzanine CardThe AM 110/10x supports the 2.16 GHz Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo T7400 processor (soldered) or 1.5 GHz Intel® Core(TM) 2 Duo L7400 processor (soldered), each with 4 Mbytes L2 cache (shared between the cores), both processors can support 64-bit operating systems. Concurrent Technologies’ composite benchmark test on the AM 110/01x shows the relative CPU performance of the 2.16 GHz processor to be 1.8 times faster than the 1.5 GHz.

Glen Fawcett, CEO of Concurrent Technologies commented: “Concurrent Technologies is one of the first to the AMC market with a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo based AMC processor supporting up to 8 Gbytes of DDR2 ECC DRAM in a single width slot.” He added, “This product offers our customers a range of processor and memory choices to match their system requirements.”

To enhance overall memory and I/O performance the AM 110/10x utilizes the Intel 3100 chipset, which combines server-class memory and I/O controller functions into a single component. The Intel 3100 chipset interfaces to up to 8 Gbytes DDR2-400 ECC memory, via two registered SODIMMs, with a peak memory bandwidth of 3.2 Gigabytes/s.

The AM 110/10x is designed in compliance to AMC.0 (including full hot swap and IPMI capabilities), AMC.1 Type 8 (PCI Express x8), AMC.2 Type E2 (2x Gigabit Ethernet) and AMC.3 Type S2 (4x Serial ATA150 ports). The module also features two USB 2.0 ports and an RS232 port. There is a further Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 2.0 port and RS232 port accessible via the front panel. An optional onboard USB Flash disk is available in a range of capacities up to 8 Gbytes.

For ease of integration, many of today’s leading operating systems are supported including Linux®, Windows® 2000, Windows® Server 2003, Windows® XP, Windows® XP Embedded and QNX®.
