3U CompactPCI 5th Gen Intel Core SBC

Manufacturer: Kontron
Kontron CP3004-SA

With CP3004-SA, the fifth Generation of Intel® Core™ technology has been made available in Kontron’s CompactPCI product portfolio. The high-density design offers extraordinary performance-per-watt values, based on the 14-nanometer technology, and is an ideal backbone for powerful network-intensive applications providing virtualization (VT-X, VT-D) and highest graphics performance. The new-generation graphics controller has up to 40 execution units providing OpenCL 1.2 / OpenGL 4 and triple independent display support. The Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions AVX 2.0 enhancements provide huge performance improvements in floating-point-intensive computations, which are a key part of digital signal and image processing applications.

CP3004-SA is prepared to be used in demanding and harsh environments, designed according to the shock and vibration requirements of VITA47 EAC3. Extended temperature versions are available. Dual-Core versions (4th gen CPU) provide for low heat dissipation. The processor’s TDP can be adjusted dynamically to a desired performance and power envelope. Typical applications can be found in the markets

  • Military/Defence: radar, sonar, general
  • Industrial Automation: plant control, machine control
  • Energy: demanding environments, coal, oil and gas
  • Transportation: long-lasting and reliable systems

Long term availability and Kontron’s commitment to a rich CompactPCI portfolio make CP3004-SA a safe investment with low total-cost-of-ownership.
