MEN Micro Inc. (Boston, MA) has expanded its series of intercompatible CompactPCI/-Express single board computers (SBCs) with a new 64-bit board based on the Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7500 combined with the Mobile Intel 965GM Express Chipset. The new F18 SBC is ideal for industrial applications such as monitoring, visualization, or control computers, as well as applications in test and measurement. With specially developed heat sink and soldered components to protect against shock and vibration, the F18 is equipped for use in mobile applications as well.

Equipped with Intel's T7500Core™2 Duo processor with a frequency of 2.2 GHz (Intel Core2 Duo Processors L7500 or U7500 are also available), the 64-bit board provides a 667/800-MHz frontside bus and high performance graphics, which accelerate above all digital image processing such as CAD tools, 2D/3D modeling, video and rendering applications, and scientific data processing. The F18 is a 32-bit/33 MHz system slot or standalone board and needs only one slot on the CompactPCI bus. Standard I/O on the front panel of the F18 includes VGA graphics, two Gigabit Ethernet ports connected via PCI-Express, and two USB 2.0 interfaces. Additional I/O is available on different side cards and includes DVI, audio, additional USB interfaces, UART interfaces, and FireWire. Hardware compatibility enables easy migration to the next processor generation without software or system adaptations.
