Emerson Network Power Rolls Out PrAMC-7220 Dual Core AdvancedMC Module

Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and the global leader in enabling Business-Critical Continuity[TM], launched the PrAMC-7220, its next generation AdvancedMC[TM] (AMC) general purpose processor module powered by the latest 45nm Intel® Core[TM]2 Duo dual core processor. The high performance module’s on-board flash memory and best-in-class I/O configuration allow the PrAMC-7220 to address a variety of embedded applications for wired and wireless networking, security/surveillance, medical imaging, industrial control, and defense/aerospace markets.

Quality assured by more than 35 years of design experience, the PrAMC-7220 features 4GB of NAND flash memory plus a MicroSD expansion slot for additional solid state storage – making it ideal for embedded environments. The PrAMC-7220 also features a best-in-class front panel 1000BASE-T I/O including dual Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 and RJ-45 console serial ports to increase connectivity and network bandwidth. Additional connectivity to the carrier board is also available via dual SATA-150 storage interfaces and x8 PCI Express lanes.

“By championing the AMC standard, Emerson Network Power’s family of processing modules are ideally suited to address many issues that frequently impact NEBS and other demanding environments – including availability, field upgradeability, cost, scalability and interoperability – off the shelf,” said Hilo Oltman, director of product line management for the Embedded Computing business of Emerson Network Power. “This exciting product release represents our continued commitment to developing high performance expansion platforms for AdvancedTCA®, MicroTCA[TM] and proprietary baseboards and systems.”

Available in full-size (1.8 GHz) and mid-size (1.2 GHz) models equipped with 4GB DDR2-400 SDRAM, the PrAMC-7220 features an IPMI-based management interface, which enables operators to pinpoint and fix problems at the module level with a reduced fault group size. The product is also fully hot-swappable, enabling operators or service personnel to replace or service modules without bringing down an entire blade or system. These features enable scalability, reduce sparing costs and mean-time-to-repair (MTTR) as well as lower both capital and operating expenditure.

The PrAMC-7220 also supports clock synchronization and is fully compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux, MontaVista Carrier Grade Edition Linux and Wind River Systems Platform for Network Equipment Linux Edition.
