Multi-core Industrial Servers

Kontron (Poway, CA) has released 2U and 4U KISS industrial servers that bring Intel® Core™2 Duo processor performance to PICMG 1.0 based PCI/ISA applications. The ultra quiet (<35 dB) industrial servers are designed for applications that require high data processing performance without the need for high-speed PCI Express features. Designed around the Intel® 945G chipset with 1066 MHz front side bus and Intel® ICH7 I/O controller hub, the Kontron KISS PCI-759 industrial servers offer scalable processor performance based on the Intel® LGA 755 socket up to the E6400 (2 × 2.16 GHz) Intel® Core™2 Duo processor. Support for up to 4 GB of DDR2 dual channel RAM is available. With a TDP of only 65 Watts, the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor brings double the performance with power consumption similar to an Intel® Pentium® 4 processor. The Kontron KISS PCI-759 servers are ideal for either upgrading existing applications or for implementing new, power-sensitive industrial PCI/ISA systems. The Kontron KISS PCI-759 industrial servers offer a full range of I/O interfaces for maximum application flexibility: up to 4 × 3Gb/s SATA II for fast hard drive access, 2 × GbE, 7 × USB 2.0, and one parallel and two serial interfaces.
