Kontron has expanded its offering to the transportation market with a series of EN50155-compliant building blocks which include the CompactPCI extension module CP305-TR, power supply unit CP3-SVE-M100DC, as well as the CompactPCI switch CP3923. The series of railway-compliant 3U CompactPCI products aim to accelerate OEMs' time-to-market and reduce hardware design-in costs for a host of rolling-stock and rugged in-vehicle applications.

Kontron products

The EN50155-compliant building blocks include the Kontron CompactPCI extension module CP305-TR, for the Intel Atom-based Kontron CP305 CompactPCI CPU board, as well as the Kontron CompactPCI switch CP3923, both with rugged metric connectors and the Kontron plug-in power supply unit (PSU) CP3-SVE-M100DC. By obtaining railway-compliant products from a single solution provider, OEMs will benefit from faster application development and reduced costs throughout the extended life cycles in trains. Potential uses can be found in all mobile applications with a need for embedded computers with reliability and longevity, such as light and heavy rail systems, as well as on board various commercial, industrial and military vehicles.

CompactPCI extension module CP305-TR, for Kontron's Intel Atom-based CP305 CPCI CPU board
The Kontron CP305-TR is a 3U, 4HP extension module for the Kontron CP305, a 3U CompactPCI CPU board, which combines the "record-breaking" performance-per-watt ratio of the Intel Atom processor with a feature set tailored to transportation needs. This includes EN50155-compliant reliability, extremely low thermal design power (TDP), plus a soldered processor, chipset and RAM for harsh environments. With two USB 2.0 service ports via M8 connectors and two Fast Ethernet ports via M12 D-coded connectors, it is well suited for all mobile and transportation-oriented applications where robust, mechanically secured connections are required. Furthermore, the extension module offers two serial interfaces as onboard 10-pin connectors in addition to two SATA connectors. Up to eight GPIO ports are available on an onboard connector (i.e., five inputs and three outputs). Used as an onboard boot medium, the Kontron CP305-TR provides support for a CompactFlash card with the option of additional mechanical fixation.

Power supply unit CP3-SVE-M100DC
The EN 50155-compliant plug-in Kontron power supply unit CP3-SVE-M100DC is designed to meet the most demanding requirements of harsh train environments with regard to reliability and ruggedisation, such as an extended operating temperature range (E2) of -40°C to +70°C (EN50155 TX), a holdup time of 10ms (EN50155 S2) and full EN50155 compliance with regard to shock and vibration, EMC and isolation requirements. With its ultra-wide input range, supporting all voltages between 24VDC and 110VDC, and a maximum output power of 100W, the PSU is suitable for both on-board and wayside applications in the rail sector.
