Rugged 3U CompactPCI single board computer is designed for a broad range of applications, with a conduction-cooled option for military applications in harsh environments

Available now from GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, the CR5 is a rugged 3U CompactPCI single board computer based on an Intel Core Duo LV (low voltage) processor operating at up to 1.66GHz. The CR5 is designed for a broad range of applications, with a conduction-cooled option making it especially appropriate for military applications in harsh environments.

The CR5 supports up to 2Gbyte of DDR2 SDRAM with ECC on a 400MHz memory bus, and features two gigabit Ethernet ports, two SATA ports, two USB 2.0 ports and eight GPIO ports.

'The announcement of the CR5 single board computer is significant for two reasons', says Wayne McGee, Global Director of SBC Product Line Management at GE Fanuc Embedded Systems.

'First, it makes available a leading edge processor coupled with the popular 3U CompactPCI form factor, and provides the option for ruggedisation in those environments that require it, such as military applications Second, it is totally form, fit and function compatible with its predecessor, and thus provides a smooth, straightforward upgrade path for customers who have previously designed the CR4 into their systems'.

The Core Duo processor provides two complete execution cores in a single processor package, sharing a 667MHz front side bus and 2Mbyte of L2 cache for maximum performance and application productivity, but with low power consumption.

Also featured by the CR5 is the Intel 3100 ICH integrated memory and I/O controller hub which provides two USB 2.0 ports, two SATA ports and a standard COM port.

An optionally available daughter card for the CR5 provides support for a CompactFlash module and SVGA graphics.

The CR5, which is PICMG 2.0 and VITA 47 compliant, provides operating system support for VxWorks, Linux and Windows XP.
