ADLINK Technology Inc. reveals the cPCI-6510 series of 6U CompactPCI blades featuring a 32nm Intel Core i7 processor and the latest Mobile Intel QM57 Platform Controller Hub. The cPCI-6510 series is validated for use with Windows XP, Windows 7, Linux and VxWorks.

The Core i7 processor with 2.53GHz clock speed and up to 3.2GHz maximum turbo frequency, incorporates dual-core computing power, integrated graphics and memory controllers, enabling greater overall performance and higher data transfer rates. The cPCI-6510 supports dual-channel DDR3-1066 SDRAM soldered onboard memory with ECC up to a maximum of 8GB.

The cPCI-6510 optionally supports an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +80°C. With all components soldered onboard, the product is well-suited for the demanding requirements of military, transportation, and communications applications. To meet the specific needs of mission critical applications in harsh environments, ADLINK also offers the CT-61, a rugged conduction-cooled version of the cPCI-6510 with identical electronic design that will be ready in the third quarter of 2010.

Armed with the Intel Core i7 processor and Intel QM57 chipset, the cPCI-6510 provides the optimum performance-per-watt ratio, four-thread computing capability, integrated graphics and extensive I/O support. The Intel Core i7 processor gives an improvement in computing performance of 90 per cent over the 45nm Intel Core2 Duo T9400 processor and 25 per cent compared to a quad-core Xeon L5408 processor, according to the company.

The cPCI-6510 provides two PMC sites at PCI-X 64bit/133MHz and one PCI Express x8 XMC site that shares the same space as the inner PMC site. A 2.5" Serial ATA hard drive or flash disc can be equipped on the cPCI-6510V version and occupies one of the PMC sites. One CompactFlash socket is also available onboard. RAID functionality is supported on SCSI, SAS or SATA interfaces via optional Rear Transition Modules.

Prices start at Rs.1,49,387.45 ($3,199).
